If it wasn't for the access problem,this would be a really top-notch little hostel.
I booked through a third party website which did not mention that in order to check in you had to go to another branch of the chain, a ten minute walk away (honestly, it's not a five minute walk, at least not the way we went). So with bags I had to walk back into the centre, check in, pick up the keycard and walk back.
I was really tired after the journey up, so this was the last thing I needed, and a fellow guest I met who also had to walk back with me to check in was in an even worse spot - she had endured a six hour bus ride and just wanted to collapse onto her bed!
It left a bad impression, to be honest, which is a real pity - the hostel itself is nice and clean and very modern. It's in a lovely part of VLC, just on the edge of Barrio Carmen - really handy for all the nice sights.
But the access issue is a problem. The lady at the checkin desk said that it was clearly marked on their website that you had to go to the other hostel (DingDong Telas) in order to check in, but I didn't see any notification on the website I used.
So to be honest, I don't think I'd use the hostel again - it's just a bit inconvenient having to check in at one place and walk to another (and if you want to store your bags you have to walk back to DingDong Telas and leave them there). It's a real pity, especially as the hostel itself is so nice.
