We stayed in Room 1 in late June for two nights. It was EXTREMELY noisy. We are pretty seasoned travelers and always carry earplugs, but our high-decibel earplugs simply didn't work. The problem is that the street is very noisy (think loud music and people shouting) until the wee hours and the restaurant in the courtyard goes until after midnight (blaring TV, karaoke music and loud diners).The family that runs the hostal is very nice and hospitable, and certainly sympathized with our complaints, but unfortunately they do not stay on the premises (they let us in, fed us breakfast each morning, but were not onsite otherwise) and do not run the restaurant in the courtyard. Couple that with squeaky floorboards and very thin walls, and we literally got about 4 hours of sleep one night because the kids above us started running through their room at about 6 am. One other minor complaint is the lack of bottled water in the rooms. We were lucky enough to have a little left from our plane trip to brush our teeth, otherwise we would have been without water. That said, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and we had no problems with the shower. Again, Gloria and Hernan, Kennia and Andres are wonderful and I sincerely hope they can overcome the serious noise issues in order to make this hostal survive over the long term. They do provide great car/driver and guide services too.
