La Escondida ("the hideaway" in Spanish) lives up to its name, More of a hotel than a hostel but at hostel prices. The location is about as central as you can get (opposite the central market), yet secluded and quiet due to its recessed position.
A great respite for tired travelers, and undoubtedly the best place I have stayed in South America, a view also expressed by quite few of the people I met here, many of whom including myself, stayed much longer than planned!
The manageress and staff are are very friendly, helpful and genuine. The rooms (breakfast included) are a home from home, flat screen TV, hot shower, well furnished, comfy beds, and are cleaned daily. The communal kitchen, dining room and cozy courtyard make for easy socializing.
The hostel itself is very secure, hosts a fast Internet connection and seems to be a 5 minute walk from all the best restaurants bars and parks. Highly recommended!!
