We chose this hostel as the previous one had run out of room. The communal areas were lovely, really open, colourful, with TV, Pool and an attached bar. Good wifi. Really was a lovely area. The breakfast wasn´t bad either with cheese, ham, fruits, jam, bread and cereals. We´d booked a twin room with private bathroom as they didn´t have a double. It wasn´t cheap at $60US but during peak season we didn´t have a lot of choice. The hostel is a huge rambling old character building and quite impressive but our room was pretty poor. It was a twin with a bathroom down the hallway which we accessed via a key. Not convenient at all. Also the twin had previously been a dorm room, hence the bunk beds! It even had four metal lockers, which they´d not bothered to remove and replace with something more suitable. Apart from a small basic table there wasn´t anything else in the room. The double rooms, which were tastefully decorated with lovely furniture, en-suite bathrooms and cable TV´s were actually cheaper and much better value. So we really were not impressed with the set up. Definitely not value for money. TIP- if you can pay in US dollars it works out cheaper than the peso equivalent. I´m not sure how the hostel worked the prices out but its definitely a lot cheaper to pay in dollars. Such a shame the room wasn´t better value, Í´d say it needs to be around the $40 dollar mark especially as the bathroom is down the hallway. The rest of the hostel is great with seating inside and out and the staff are really helpful too. Situated in the bella visa area which is very central. The hostel we´d stayed at previously was cheaper and had an attached bathroom in the same area so we definitely were comparing the two fairly.
