Just rating the pizza because as a bar/hangout it's just not my kind of scene (due to age), but they have a proper pizza oven, don't oversaturate the dough with cheese and sauce (the way every city in the US ruins pizza and why pizza should mostly be avoided in the US) and the result is a fairly authentic tasting pizza! Light, perfect consistency to the dough and that little bit of crunch it gets from the right kind of baking, and by not being oversaturated, it's not soggy! The staff is friendly, the service is prompt, the pizzas are a reasonable price, they do take-out, so all in all this is my go-to for pizza. I've had other nice pizza in town for double the price but why do that when this exists for half the price? It's nice that as part of a hostel they keep it affordable for their guests and I can appreciate that. They make it back on drink prices anyway lol!
As far as the bar is concerned it would be nice if they had wine for those who don't drink beer or hard liquor. I also wish they, like everywhere in town offering vodka in a shot form, would actually CHILL their vodka since vodka shots should be served warm on no planet.....but again, that seems to be the way it's done around those parts so I can't blame them for it. If they put their premium vodka in the freezer they'd be a cut above the rest though ;)
Anyway, they'll keep being my San Pedro pizza staple and one of these nights when I have a team I'll probably join a Pub Quiz-if they can put that bottle of vodka in the freezer for me lol! Honestly though, I love the fact they do pub quizzes, that's pretty cool and a thing I miss about Europe. It seems like a nice social scene and place to meet people, especially for young travelers. 18 year old me would probably hang out there 3x/week...and 18 year old me could handle beer and soda/sweetened drinks as mixers! They have a nice afternoon happy hour and I appreciate all places with happy hours!
