The only good thing about this place was one of the staff Daniel. He was always helpful and chatting to everyone. Oh and the food was good. The organisation of this place is atrocious. Couldn't find our booking or anyone else's, kept giving beds away that weren't vacant and most of the staff were rude. The bathrooms were disgusting and never any toilet paper. There were duvets on the beds that was nice. The wifi is a bit hit or miss.

Horrorosa la atención, fiestas toda la noche hasta la madrugada, imposible dormir, un chico de 19 años, inglés casi se muere por sobredosis en la habitación y la administracion no quería llamar a un medico. Gotera en la pieza, se corto el agua, la luz y además el internet no funcionaba. No tenian sistema de tarjeta de credito para pagar, solo podía pagarse en efectivo. Durante la estadía me cambiaron dos veces de habitación, un desorden administrativo impresionante, el administrador tiene un trato horroroso, nadie supo decirnos su nombre y el solo se presento como Jorge. Cama en pesimo estado, deshechas y sin sabanas limpias. A raiz del corte de agua los baños eran asquerosos, despues se corto la luz. Niños de 19 y 20 años tomando desenfrenados. Desayuno te o cafe con un pan, margarina y mermelada. Creo que deberían auditar el hostal pues es una muy mala imagen para HI.

Es el peor Hostel donde me he quedado alguna vez, hace más de dos años estoy viajando y siempre elegí algún alberge HI porque me daba seguridad; sin embargo, en este albergue nada funcionaba bien. Por las noches no se puede dormir porque la fiesta dura hasta las 5am de lunes a domingo, un chico de mi pieza casi muere de sobredosis por crack, valium, diazepan y vodka. Además de los ruidos molestos por la fiesta, era muy común que todos trajeran sus parejas de la noche y tuvieran sexo allí mismo, sin importar que hubiese gente durmiendo (o intentándolo). Es la peor experiencia que he tenido en alguna hostel, ciertamente no volvería a The Point y mucho menos se la recomendaría a un amigo. Todos los días había un administrador distinto y la chica de recepción asignaba camas que estaban ya ocupadas/sucias.

The staff in this hotel is very very bad and irresponsable! They didn't responde mi e-mail to delay one day .When I arrived, they told me that for the festival of the sol ,they don't have enough space for me, So I had to look for a new bed by myself.
