3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
No sound proofing
Good location, Alex the receptionist was nice, clean. However, i felt little privacy in my private riim as you can hear literally everything from the room door ( I could hear the guy next door breathing /snoring as if he was in the szme room). This is a very big negative for me so I would not stay there again.

Great hostel, clean rooms and friendly staff. Right next to a metro station so was easy to get around the city

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Hostel de galera,bom para curtir, nao para dormir
Hostel muito bacana, porem as camas deixam um pouco a desejar, e o isolamento acustico tambem pode ser melhorado, dava para escutar o ronco do quarto ao lado,e as conversas pelos corredores em horarios nao convencionais. Certos ruidos interferem muito para quem viaja a trabalho e tem necessidade de descansar para trabalhar no dia seguinte. Cafe da manha simples, sem muitas opcoes.

Muito bom
Sempre um prazer passar uns dias nesse casarão lindo, com funcionários agradáveis, café da mamhã na medida, localização perfeita e um monte de outras boas qualidades. Uma sugestão é que vocês tenham um banco de dados com as informações dos hóspedes frequentes e, quando a gente chega, só assina a ficha. Agilizaria para todo mundo. Mas a falta desse procedimento não desmerece o Hostel. Voltarei outras vezes.
