I stayed at the Quechua Inn in March 2013 for 3.5 weeks in a 5 bed dorm. The beds were a big saggy but surprisingly comfortable. The facilities were very clean, bathrooms pretty modern with hot water, great sunny patios and a decently stocked kitchen. The set up in the communal area was good to meet others, particularly the big kitchen and the comfy couches in the living room around the big TV (excellent DVD watching!).
Ricardo, the owner, is wonderful! So friendly, helpful and kind. Security is good too--the gate is locked at night but occupants can come and go easily (does Ricardo ever sleep?), and despite no lockers in rooms, I only ever had a few rolls of toilet paper stolen. Generally a chill place when I was there too--a lot of people were studying Spanish there so not a party hostel. Great location in that it was quietly away from the hub, but only a few minutes walk to get to it. Oh, and I rarely had issues with wifi although I know some people who were trying to do a lot of downloading and streaming said it was really slow.
Negatives for me:
- At times the pressure in the shower was a bit sketch.
- I'd like to see shower curtains in the bathrooms, or at least a squeegee or mop, so the whole room isn't soaked after a shower.
- It'd still be nice to have a few lockers available for use.
- Kitchen should have a labelling system for people's items. It was a bit haphazard without a system.
- More bowls and storage containers in the kitchen please!
