We had a very bad experience. The heat did not work in our room and nobody cared. It appears that the heater in that room had not worked for more than two weeks (another room mate told us that). The people from the hostel told us "sorry", with a big smile in their faces, as if they were accustomed to do it. The woman of the room also told us that, in the morning, there is no hot water to have shower in the bathroom.

Travel tips...

Budget meal tip

Sweet green という名のサンドイッチショップには、味噌ドレッシングを使ったサラダがあり、クレープのようなパンで巻いてもらいました。 その数軒隣にあるPitango Gelato というアイスクリーム屋さんもお薦めです。

Where next?

another hostel. We would have liked another answer from the hostel staff, some degree of empathy, some compensation... they just laugh in our faces....
