After all, I liked this place, mainly because of my overall experience with the staff and my exploration of the city. However, the room that I got had a problem with pluming in the bath room and smelled bad every now and then. I really hope they fix this problem as soon as possible. In addition, the room was a loft, and the space on the ground floor was basically useless. I did not mind as I was alone. Cleanliness of room and hotel was good with very unique characters--not like a regular hotel. Quality of service can vary, depending on who is available to respond. The hotel had a pool, but no one was using it. The hotel location is probably one important factor for a discussion. It somehow worked for me, managing to find a bus/a van, but a few taxies refused to give me a ride from Lapa to this place, probably because it's too close and streets are made of cobblestones. During the daytime, it's fine to walk, but not after the sunset, I felt. But if you can overcome this transportation problem, it's a very convenient place to access Lapa. For your information, although this trip was not, I used to a lot of backpacking trips. In addition, this place hosted also elderly/middle-aged couples.
