This hostel is super booked, so clearly a lot of people love it – but unfortunately I'm not one of them. The good: It has a laidback, warm atmosphere and a killer balcony with lots of room for people to hang out (in hammocks) and check their internet. The bad: beds aren't very comfortable, either in the dorm room or in the private rooms. It advertises an “all-day pancake breakfast included” - neglecting to say you have to make it yourself, and then do the dishes. When I was staying there there was no milk and they were out of sugar. The air-conditioners in the “air-conditioned” rooms only work at night. And lastly, they brag about how they are “the hostel with no rules” - but then they post rules everywhere. Rules are just fine, bro, so own up to them.

Quietly nestled in a working-class residential neighborhood, Mamallena offers the weary backpacker or budget traveler a place to rest their weary dogs. Speaking of dogs, you will probably be greeted by one at the entrance to the staircase. Mamallena offers the traditional dormitory sleep setting for around $13 a person, or if you prefer a more private setting, a few rooms are available starting at $33. The private rooms are very small but clean and have air conditioning from the hours of 9pm-8am. Both dormitories and private rooms have shared showers and toilet facilities. Complimentary coffee and pancakes are available if you are willing to grab a spatula and cook the meal yourself. Beer, wine, sodas, bottled water and milk are available for purchase at the front desk.Recommended for:Backpackers
