This hostel is great, both location wise and people wise. When we first arrived we checked in and the girl behind the desk accidently picked up my sunglasses, thinking they were her own. She was so apologetic I ended up feeling bad!
The rooms were comfy and pleasant, no air conditioning but we were there in the middle of summer, I can imagine if you go in autumn or spring you would be fine.
The staff we so friendly, it really made the stay nice. I attract mosquitoes like Charlie Sheen to drugs, so the manger wrote down the name of a good antihistamine for me to give to a pharmacist.
On our last night I drank...... allot. The bar is fully stocked (there was remarkably less Four Roses bourbon the day after) and at night the atmosphere is really chilled out and nice, you can talk with other guests too which you don't always get in some places.
The hotel is set in a park, and it's a short bus ride from the centre, or you could walk, either way its quite pleasant.
If you are worried about the hostel being on the river, don't be. It is really secure and once your inside you would really have to concentrate to feel it rocking, if at all.
I would defiantly recommend it again, the people are great and it was a really big part of what made my holiday great.

We were so satisfied with lunch that we went to the hostel to have a shower and relax for a bit. After having a shower Gonzalo went for a nap at around 17.30 and Tez at 19.30. The only problem was, since ...

We drove around and around looking for anything that looked even remotely like what we saw pictured on the map and finally came to a round-about (traffic circle) that we could locate. We then ...

We checked out hotel Grad and because its restaurant was open only for breakfast, we decided to stop for a bite, check out other places in town before committing to staying. The restaurant was booked out to a private wedding party and we couldn’t eat there. But the helpful ...
