Stayed here for one night which was more than enough. Very dilapidated. Showers and toilets were in the same, very small room and are unisex. No privacy at all. Water out of the shower smelt funny. When we checked in, the staff member took my money and put a key in front of us and seemed annoyed that he had...

I only stayed one night there, but the place made a good impression on me. Clean dorms and bathrooms, location was great. There was a nice atmosphere in this part of town. Only problem was that I didn't have wifi, only in the restaurant next to the hostel.

We stayed for one night in a private room with shared bathroom. The room was clean but was very dark and the overnight bus seats were more comfortable than that bed! The toilets smelt terrible and the shower door didn't work which made showering a panicked experience. The garden is very untidy and in need of serious love. The whole...

The only good thing about this hostel was the location which was perfect for popping into the main town area and a short walk away from the bus station. The toilets were very unclean and smelt really bad. One of the showers didn't have a door and the shower water smelt really coppery. The staff weren't very friendly either. It's...

Stayed in a private room with my wife, 9month old daughter and our little dog. It was a good room, there was hot water and airconditioning. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The general location is very beautiful with all the beautiful trees and vegetation.

Staff were very rude and unaccommodating, didn't offer any help when asked for directions to get collectivos etc. Private rooms extremely hot and small. Don't use the laundry service they bleached some of my clothes. The nice restaurant attached and a ping pong table were its only good points!

I enjoyed my stay in the hostel. It was amlost empty and was staying almost alone in the female dorm room. Room is surrounded by the plants and trees and it gives very relaxed and chilled atmosphere. There are lockers in the room. Toilets were clean. Kitchen is small and for basic use only. There is no breakfast provided. Location...

Pros: -really nice place, big garden, not many guests (for some it could be negative), kitchen, close to the bus station and city center, decent price (180 Peso for dorm night), clean bathroom and showers with hot water, helpful staff (I speak Spanish). Cons: -average internet and only in the halls. There is no need to stay longer, because there...
