Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness
Fiquei no quarto compartilhado com 8 mulheres, havia apenas um banheiro para as 8 Mulheres, infelizmente não dava para ter noção de que haviam feito a limpeza diária, tanto que após 3 diárias solicitei limpeza no banheiro pensando que não tinham feito, pois além de ser pequeno, estava com algum vazamento (box ou na vaso sanitário), que deixava mais sujo e inútil a limpeza diária. Hostel é novo e ainda está ocorrendo alguns reparos estruturais, mas nada que atrapalhe a experiência. Piscina pequena, infelizmente, não tem uma torneira para tirar a areia da praia antes de entrar na piscina, fica no fundo toda areia. Recepcionistas super solícitos, amáveis e simpáticos, quisera eu que todos os hostels e hotéis tivessem pessoas assim trabalhando.
