I booked again this hostal at end of September 2012, and I was really happy with their service.
The room was clean as usual, and I got lucky to get the same room attendant " MARCIA". She was off when I checked in, and she saw me on the street...I was really surprised when she called me by name (on the street), and to see how happy she was to see me again. The first thing she asked me, was " If I was staying with them?"... WOW, it made me feel very special, because I did not have any reservation with them( I just walked in to the hotel when I arrived to Santo Domingo).
Everything was positive about my stay there, they even were flexible to adjust prices (room rates).If you find the price is too high, I strongly recommend to speak to the supervisor of the front desk. She is really nice and may give better rate. Wilson the front desk agent was very helpful and friendly, always attentive and concerned about guests wants or needs. The wifi internet works well in the corridors and I got some problems to connect to the internet in some areas inside my room. The A/C, mini fridge and tv worked very well...I use to heat my food in the main floor ( they have microwaves).
As I mentioned before, the only negative side is the bathroom, too tiny...But it did not bother me anyways. I got a good deal per night, the hotel is clean, quiet and safe, the room was extremely clean, I could get fresh towels from the housekeeping or front desk, and I was around natural friendly employees. I compared rates of the other hotels in the same street (right in front of the hostal), and they charge way more and are not as clean as the hostal.
