Excelente lugar en general, un lugar muy lindo para recomendar, deberían realizar mas actividades para la noche como por ejemplo salida a bares. Por otro lado me entere que se puede hacer voluntariado, pero que se tiene que pagar para poder realizarse a cambio de comida y cama, esto es así? de ser así no estaría muy bien, hay hostels que son muy buenos y bien calificados y se hace voluntariado de 4 horas diarias a cambio de comida y lugar para dormir. me pueden comentar ? gracias

Hot water for shower took forever. I thought I was going to have to take a cold shower. Also there was a homeless man lying on the bench next to the door of the hostel. It was a little weird.

Un seul membre du personnel à l'accueil agréable. Portes trop bruyantes. Petit dej très déçu.. 2 douches pour filles (hors celle pour handicapée) à l'étage: cohue le matin... Avantage: proximité de tout, et prix.
