This building is stunningly beautiful, and it was cool to stay in a place that felt really historic. The open courtyard concept in the middle is quite unique.
This really isn't a hostel in the traditional sense -- there's no kitchen, and no convenient common areas that promote socialization. The common areas it did offer weren't really ones that I wanted to hang out in -- old furniture with a TV that didn't work. There's an extreme lack of power outlets, and those that were available didn't work if the lights were off, so you couldn't charge anything overnight (which is problematic!). The bathroom (women's) smelled a bit like sewage, and the shower area didn't have any kind of private changing space, so you pretty much had to get naked in front of others.
My check-in by Uriel was very welcoming and helpful. He was very nice throughout my stay. The building is exquisite, beds are super-comfortable, dorm room 2 is large and spacious and with a balcony, location is perfect, hot water in showers (albeit with a strange showerhead where water sprays in all directions). A suggestion I really think you need to take on board. Convert the washroom with three taps into a kitchenette with some plates and cutlery, cups, kettle, mini bar fridge, put a stronger light, and put some dining tables in the library or common room. It will be more convenient for guests to make a coffee or tea in the morning, or even to cut a piece of fruit, and to meet others. Or offer complimentary coffee/tea at the restaurant in the morning.
Lack of social atmosphere, soap dispensers need to be filled (and fixed), the bathroom smells a bit (needs some drain cleaner), no kitchen (pretty much essential in hostels), the water tank needs a dispenser (it's 20L capacity which equals 20kg), more functioning powerpoints are needed, hostel layout is a bit strange. On my first night, an extended family (kids aged about 5 and 8, mum and perhaps an aunt, and grandma) stayed in the dorm which is unusual for a hostel. They should be only allowed to have a private room because the kids are noisy and crying. It was a ghost town on New year's eve.
Very central and convenient to downtown
It was beautiful property
Staffs don’t speak English, no hair dryer, the bathroom was too far from the room, the hostel is on the second floor of a restaurant that shares the entrance and the front desk is outside of the restaurant so whenever I need something at the front desk, I had to walk through people who were dining
1 Unique design 2 Amazing location
