I will agree the staff are great and this hostel has a great laid back vibe. Beautiful court yard and reasonable priced drinks.

The place does not in any way resemble the pictures. It is very run down and facilities are in bad disrepair. We didn't even have a shower curtain in our washroom so it was a delight to wake up to a soaked floor. The kitchen is dirty pretty filthy even by hostel standards and the common areas could use a good scrub. We have stayed in strictly hostels in the last 2 months and this by far was the dirtiest.

If you need a reasonably priced room and like a few drinks every now and again with a good crowd and are not picky by all means stay here. It's livable. If you prefer something with a bit of comfort and peace and quiet this may be one to avoid. We survived but it wasn't on the highlight reel!

It's a little loud, but aren't all hostels? The staff is friendly and hang out on the patio with guests in the evenings. The showers aren't great, but they have an elevator. I had my own room, then I returned later with a friend and we had a room with two beds...quite small but I had chosen to stay again because I enjoyed it. I recommend this place.

Room Tip: Don't get the single room that backs up to the back patio...Guests stay up until 3:00/4:00AM every night...

Borges Hostel has some surprising entertainment in the middle of the night. While you try to sleep. Two out of three nights, some imbecile started playing repetitive blues and singing on the top of his voice at 4-5 o clock in the morning. I wish i read some reviews before because there are already complaining people a year ago. This is so disrespectful to your customers when have a silence curfew from 12:00-07:00.
Besides that our first room had a broken toilet seat and no shower curtain so the whole batroom was like a river after a shower.
Been in lot of hostels all over the world but this kond of behaviour i never experienced. I think they should kock this guy and his drunken friends out otherwise they will get what karma they represent.
Choose a nother one please this is such a great neighborhood. Your sleeping place should fit that. Good luck finding a better option. Peace.

Pictures are misleading.
Breakfast served very late. In weekend at 9:00 but in fact it was served at 9:30.
Sanitary was poor. We had to change the room because it was broken.
Then the worst was that in the middle of the night, at 4:30 pm, some ridiculous narcissistic clown started performing on his guitar as if he were in a stadion. You could here the neighbors shouting at him from their bedroom windows. Very embarrassing. And of course we woken as well, 2 days in a row.
Staff seemed only interested in them selves.
Location is good. That's all...

Avoid this hotel at all cost. The place is seemingly run by hippies and absolutely not appropriate for families with small children. Breakfast is included and contains of yesterdays cake and juice syrup. The bathroom is a dump. Completely overrated, and overpriced.
