  • 4.0.Fair


    Reservamos um quarto para 2 pessoas e logo na entrada uma pessima impressao - o espaço é colonial mas sem conservação, iluminaçao precaria. O quarto era pequeno, com um ventilador pequeno na parede e sem proteçao, escuro e mal cheiroso, sem janelas - nem albergue para mendigos é tão ruim. Depois que reclamanos, ofereceram outro quarto menos ruim se pagassemos a mais. Estavamos cansadas da viagem e ja era noite por isso tivemos que dormir la. No outro dia, nos cobraram pelo café-da-manhã sendo que nossa diaria teria incluso o dejejum. Devolveram parte das 3 diarias pagas mas tivemos que arranjar um outro hotel as pressas e saimos de lá. Eles tinham o selo do Hostelling Internacional na porta de entrada mas havia perdido a credencial há mais de um ano. A construção é estilo colonial e tem grande potencial mas está muito mal conservada e administrada. Pena!

    Quarto espaçoso, chuveiro agravel, porem sem ventilação, com cheiro de mofo forte (e não tinham outro quarto disponivel), café da manhã com o basico do básico ( de fruta só laranja todos os dias e pão apenas de forma), talheres e pratos sujos. Localização boa.

    Os funcionários são excelentes, o bar é legal e o ambiente é incrível. Acredito que o varal poderia ser maior, quase não tivemos espaço para colocar nossas roupas lavadas. Também não tinha onde lavar, eu acredito (pelo menos não vi nada). O quarto tem ar condicionado e ducha, mas a cortina vazia tudo ficar molhado. O wi-fi não pegava no meu quarto, apenas perto da porta. As bikes que eu e minha amiga alugamos eram ótimas e o hostel era bem localizado.
