Speedy Around The Globe
The hostel itself was OK. Great breakfast options for $3USD or $4.50USD with juice and fruit. Huge, 6 options and freshly made.
The location of the hostel was awful in terms of getting food at night. It is situated in a commercial area selling tiles, kitchen sinks, plumber etc so nothing open at night. We had to get a $3USD taxi to Plaza Foch when we arrived at 8pm just to eat. Not even a local shop. Second night we eat in town before returning to hostel. Considering it has nothing around the area the traffic noise was horrrndous. Our private double room was large and staff were friendly. We only stayed two nights and moved to a better located hostel with three restaurant 100 metres away. $2USD dinners.
O hostel fica numa região que têm pouco comércio e restaurantes. A noite fica deserto o local. Fica próximo do ponto de ônibus Alameda. Os quartos são apertados e pouco ventilados. A área comum é ampla e confortável. Os banheiros são apertados bem como o local para tomar banho. O atendimento é muito bom. O ambiente é bem animado e você sente que está num Hostel para jovens.
