Would stay again
I loved staying at the Sunflower Stop. It was a clean, nice hostel. My only complaint was that the room I was staying in was pretty noisy so it was sometimes hard to fall asleep at night and the door was really difficult to unlock. I would stay here again though!

Un hostel cerca de todo
El hostel es muy lindo, cuidado y limpio. Cuenta con una cocina amplia y con todas las comodidades. El personal siemore esta oara ayudarte. El jardin me parecio un lugar ideal para relajarse junto a la pileta, y cuenta con un bar aue los sabados hacen barbacoa. Las habitaciones impecables, los baños limpios y amplios. Es un hostel que se nota que le ponen onda y se siente esa buena energia del personal.

Not as expected
This hostel is located very good BUT at the moment, and probably for a longer time of period ahead it is right next door to a big, very noisy construction site... The tiny pool is freezing cold and the breakfast lacks a lot, so unfortunately this isn't a place a would re-visit for the rates their asking. It's ok clean though and the staff is friendly.

Excelente localidade! Atendimento cordial!
Minha experiência é totalmente voltada a hotéis de 3 a 5 estrelas. Foi minha primeira (e última!) hospedagem com minha família em hostel. Os parâmetros de comparação entre tudo o que os hotéis (3 a 5 estrelas) podem oferecer e um hostel são completamente diferentes e prefiro não apontar os pontos negativos desse hostel aqui por achar que sairá muito mal avaliado e em extrema desvantagem. Porém, chamo a atenção para a cordialidade dos donos, pela gentileza de fazer check-in fora do horário limite e por atender nossos pedidos. Além disso, a localidade é excelente, perto de todos os pontos turísticos.

Não recomendo para famílias
O hostel afirma ter estacionamento, mas não tem. Há vagas em frente ao hostel e nada é cobrado, mas o carro fica na rua. O café da manhã é bem fraco. Não recomendo o hostel para famílias com crianças e para quem gosta de silêncio. Na minha última noite, houve um churrasco na área da piscina, com muito barulho até tarde. Um grupo chegou tarde com mochilas, acredito que para fazer check-in. Era mais de 22:00 e eles fizeram uma algazarra nos corredores. Aparentemente, ninguém do hostel recomendou silêncio. Chegaram a forçar a maçaneta do meu quarto (possivelmente, um dos hóspedes novos que nem sabia onde era o seu quarto).

Inget bra
Extreeemt dyrt hostel. Vi hade ett privat dubbelrum och när vi kom dit var det smutsiga kuddar och lakan. Det var noll ljudisolerat och fönsterna gick inte att stänga. Det luktade också kiss i hela hostelet. Vi bytte 2 dagar efter till en egen lägenhet som kostade precis lika mycket bara några hundra meter bort. Jätte fräscht.

Not recommended
The breakfast were not good. The toilets and showers were shared by both woman and men so I didn't feel safe enough to shower... People smoke marijuana openly while having a barbecue by the pool But the service and the woman who worked there was perfect and really kind

Kiva hostelli
Suosittelen. Kiva hostelli. Mukava ja avulias henkilökunta, kiva sijainti vähän keskustan ulkopuolella, tilava huone ja siisti keittiö. Otimme lentokentältä taksin, mutta saimme vinkin käyttää jatkossa taxify appia.
