The picture above is from the "Nuevo Donde German", i.e. the NEW hostel. Make sure you are aware which one you book as the "old" one is 4km out of town. My review is for the new one.
The location is fantastic - only 6min walk from the Tur-bus station, several big supermarkets and veggie/ fruit stores nearby. Laundry place only down the street (you pay after kg and drop off and pick up the same day).
The whole hostel is more like a cabin in the mountains and build of pine logs. It is really cozy and once you get in, you feel like home. The communal kitchen is large and very well equipped with spaces to store the food with room number. The whole hostel is spotless clean, and I can even recommend the shared bathrooms as there are several.
We stayed in a double bed room with private bathroom, but realized as said above, that one could have easily saved the money because the shared ones were great. Good pressure on the showers, always warm water.
Rooms upstairs have volcano view and have heaters (even though it was difficult to communicate that they would turn on the heaters at night).
Perfect, fast wifi connection. Tour office available.
Great garden with awesome pool, sun stretchers etc.
Only negative point: staff doesn't speak English at ALL. Might be a problem if you have the same abilities with Spanish ;)
