    Quite good hostel! :)

    Overall Monita Hostel was pretty good! The staff who works there are the best part. Super kind and knowledgeable! We stayed in a private room, which was quite nice and comfortable. The only thing that in my opinion needs to be improved is cleanliness and operatibility of the shared bathroom.

    Foi minha pior experiência! A estrutura extremamente perigosa, o prédio é super antigo ele é apenas maquiado com pinturas, e durante o período que fiquei hospedado o teto do bar e da cozinha caiu colocando em risco minha vida e dos demais. Deve ter uma fiscalização mais rigorosa quando se trata do assunto VIDA HUMANA. A falha de comunicação com os hóspedes em relação a situação e grosserias do próprio responsável foram constrangedoras para todos presentes. O BARATO PODE SAIR MUITO CARO! Compensa pagar uns reais a mais e ter segurança e qualidade durante a estadia do que pagar com custos hospitalares por causa de NEGLIGÊNCIA de EMPRESAS QUE TEM COFRE E NÃO CORAÇÃO.

    • Disliked: Room comfort

    The beds are bunk beds with THREE levels. It`s really uncomfortable to climb all the way to the top bed

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

    El hostal está bastante céntrico y accesible. Las habitaciones son cómodas y limpias, con enchufes y lámparas en tu propia cama, además de cortina que te brinda cierta intimidad. Los baños podrían mejorarlos, principalmente las duchas, algunas con fugas, sin lugar a para colocar tus artículos de baño. Desayuno bien. El staff muy agradable y servicial.
