I had a very enjoyable time here, the place was clean, there was free drinking water available and all the staff were friendly. They were extra helpful in sorting out where my lost luggage had ended up and made phone calls to the airport and airlines on my behalf in Spanish to help source where they it was, and finally when they did arrive after 5 nights they kept it for the night for me even though I had moved to a hostel across town. Only fault is the $50 airport transfer, it is a must have as the airport is so far out of the city,however most other hostels and hotels charge between $20 and $30 for a transfer, but through this hotel I was given a much more expensive transfer. The driver nonetheless was very good and we communicated with what little of each others' languages we knew. This would be given full marks if it wasn't for the over priced transfer.
