Pros: big rooms, place is very clean, excellent kitchen which many people socialise in the evenings, toiletrees and towels included, helpful staff, excellent value for money overall. Cons: bed a little small, a little bit run down and an old building.

We stayed for one night enroute to the Colombian border. Excellent staff in a quirky hostel. Good facilities, comfy bed, great night sleep. Staff were able to help and assist our plans for onward travel.
