The have many lounge areas and places to chill and hang out, and the communal kitchen is huge and pretty well stocked.
They offer breakfast included in your rate, but we went out for breakfast every morning. Their wifi connection is good throughout the hostel, and seemed to offer good speed (enough to make skype voice calls etc.)
The excursions offered through the front dest were really good, we did the coffee tour, the canyons and the hot springs. (the hot springs were overrated, but i loooved the canyon and coffee tour!)
Now for the not soo good feedback:
There is not enough toilets and showers for the people staying in the dorms
Some of the international staff were unprofessional and more there to party and pick up girls
The service was very varied, sometimes you would meet helpful staff, other times they would hardly look at you.
Rebecca worked in the front desk and was very helpful, arranging transport to the airport and many other things! :)
The rooms with windows towards the back gets a lot of food fumes (from the restaurant downstairs)
They could've included a towel in the hostel-rate (or at least used a deposit not a fee to get one).
