  • They had a pipe burst with no shower water for days we left early. The carpet was very old and beds hard. Staff was very nice and friendly.

    muitos pontos positivos e alguns negativos

    O hostel é muito bem localizado e ocupa 4 andares de um edificio (do 4 ao 7 andar). O terraço é o ponto forte do hostel, pela linda vista. O atendimento da recepção é ótimo. Vários hóspedes deste hostel estão há meses hospedados (seja por motivo de estudo ou trabalho). Devido a isso, caracterizo este hostel como um local calmo, tranquilo, sem festas e sem grande rotatividade de pessoas. Esse é um hostel para quem quer mais tranquilidade, tanto que o próprio hostel não oferece atividades de interação. O café da manhã é simples e bem saboroso. Há sempre dois tipos de pães, margarina, geleia, cereais, café, leite e chá. O café, o leite e o chá ficam disponíveis 24h. Fiquei no quarto andar, num quarto de 4 camas. O quarto era ótimo: ótimo colchão e cama, ar condicionado, lokers espaçosos, quarto grande, banheiros limpos. No entanto, o quarto não era limpado com regularidade. Fiquei 24 dias no hostel, e a roupa de cama que deveria ser trocada de 5 em 5 dias (segundo eles) só foi trocada 2 vezes (a segunda vez foi porque eu pedi). A internet nas primeiras semanas era excelente. No entanto, nas duas últimas semanas que estive, decaiu em velocidade e conexão. O hostel oferece serviço de lavagem de roupa a um preço econômico, o que facilita bastante. Um ponto realmente negativo foi a quebra do elevador. Quando fui embora do hostel, o elevador estava quebrado há 5 dias. Tenho problema no joelho e isso atrapalhou bastante a minha acessibilidade.
