I stayed here years ago and really enjoyed it. Met new people and the staff was friendly. I’m writing this review now because it’s closed and has been since the pandemic started in 2019. I work on the same block and people arrive there not knowing it’s closed. They didn’t call prior to coming to the hostel. Just wanted other travelers to know. If and when it opens, I’ll post another review. Something HostelSuites Florida should have done.
I think it was built in the 70s and they just left everything the same. The place is seriously worn down, but room is clean and staff is mostly friendly. We arrived early and we could get access to our room prior check in time. Breakfast is simple, breakfast buns, butter, jams, dulce de leche, yoghurt, cereals and coffee but it is fine for starting the day.The kitchen is a serious let down, pots, pans are worn, should be binned and not to be used anymore, bowls are broken so cooking anything simple like an omlette or fried egg is a challenge.Location is very good, right in the centre, landmarks are walking distance.
Friendly staff and good location. The room was more or less clean and minimalistic. Heating was not working and the windows don't close properly. But at least we had an extra blanket. Good for one or two days stay of you don't have high needs.
Top location, good prices, friendly staff.Rooms are not very clean though and theBreakfast doesn't deserve more than one star, but you get what you pay for, I guess.What really needs to be criticized though is the plastic. Bowls for cereals, spoons and cups are all plastic and thrown out daily.Being part of an organization like youth hostelling international i would hope for stricter environmental standards.You can do better, especially staff at breakfast does definitely not seem to have too much to do ..
Staff were friendly but the room I had was below expectations. The room smelt of mould and it was visable on some of the walls. All of the doors were very sticky so there was constant banging through out the night as people got back to their rooms and tried to close their doors behind them. Not a bad price but a couple of small changes could make it much more enjoyable.
