The awesomely named Lazy Gaga Hostel is also host to an awesome list of amenities. They have everything you need, and then some things that you didn't even realize you needed. First, the location is terrific, as it's right in the middle of the city, just a few minutes' walk to the metro, shops, restaurants, various sites and activities, and more. You just plain can't beat this location.
Dorms and private rooms are available, including a family sized room (or a room for larger groups). Dorm bunks are custom built and are quite wide and comfortable. Dorms also have custom built lockers for bags which include power outlets inside them so you can charge your electronics while they are locked up. (How cool is that?!?) Security is also taken seriously, as the key-card access makes sure that no one gets in.
The common areas are spacious and include plenty of activities. TVs, Wii, Wi-Fi, a large communal kitchen, games, books, pool table, foosball, and more. Hot showers, laundry, bike rental, tour booking, a mini-market, 24-hour desk, and luggage storage are also on the list of amenities. Basically, this place has a lot to offer, and the friendly staff can help with anything else you need.
Guest reviews are consistently positive, as the staff does everything it can to make you feel welcome. High marks are given for cleanliness, the fun social vibe, comfort, and the perfect location in the city.
