danmer Services is very good (better then a normal backpacker hostel), Location is only about 2mins walk to the CBD. Only down side is if you want to watch the news at the end of the day or sport they do not have any tv's on site at all other then that a great little hostel.

tinamarieto If you want to be able to sleep, DO NOT STAY HERE. If you don't mind LOUD people ALL HOURS, then this place might be a cheap stay. There are people that obviously live here full-time that have no respect. I was woken by them literally every hour for all three nights of my stay. For someone on business, this is not good. The staff are friendly, but disorganized and too often unavailable. Examples include: I almost missed the ability to check into my room because I arrived at 7:45pm just as they were closing up. Had I arrived 15 minutes later I would be SOL. There are dishes available for guests, but they are kept in the office and because the office was subsequently closed, I was unable to cook. The rooms are clean and large for a hostel. The hostel itself is in need of a remodel. It reminds me of a dilapidated building in Cuba. I was not given a blanket and didn't think to bring one, so I was COLD every night. It's subtropical, but winter still made it into the low-teens celcius. All in all, I would NOT stay here again.
