This hostel is perfect for young travellers, who want to party, be right in the heart of a colorful, alternative and loud area and enjoy a good time by the pool. But its also very noisy, the private rooms are booked all the time. The service is ok, not the best. But the pool is awesome, the rooms are clean...

Sometimes service is awesome and sometimes not. No nets to prevent from mosquitos but great wifi connection. Not all the credit card work, cheap enough to forget the not very clean room and not very well showers.

Great position in Getsemani', small but refreshing pool, nice rooftop bar and many people in the common areas. But really overpriced. Not enough toilette (spent 10 mins in line for a shower!) and super hot rooms. Not so clean too.

Lockers, hot/cold water, AC, an enormous kitchen, a great terrace, with a nice view and perfect to lay down and get toasted haha.. party is also fun....

The Media Luna is a Party Hostel that is chosen by a younger crowd. In the middle of the hostel is a small pool and all the rooms are around the pool therefore it is most of the time rather loud in the rooms. The rooms itself are only equipped with basic equipment and my sheets had some stains. If...

I stayed 1 night and NEVER AGAIN! Bad service, unfriendly, fan didn't work, didn't even tell me where the bathrooms were. You enter the hostel and they don't welcome you n'or day hello throughout the whole check-in!!! They don't offer a towel n'or show you where bathrooms or anything else is! I didn't have a sheet on my bed so...

Before I left the bag in the (secure) room I was standing at reception putting the headphones into the front pocket. Was sure noone seen me as it was a pretty random guess for a thief to...
