This hostel/hotel is within a block of the subway, so easy to connect for traveling to other parts of the city. The 2 rooms that my family of 3 stayed in faced an inner breakfast/lounging room (no windows). We shared common bathrooms (boys/girls) with the other guests and there was also a small kitchen for cooking, which we took advantage of one evening. The hostel/hotel was clean and the bed comfortable. The room was rather spartan, with not even a mirror; the towels rough and while clean, somewhat stained. The balcony in our room (with the only opening to the outside as there were no windows) overlooked a busy street and a wreck of a building across the street, so I can't say much for the view. We were able to get wi-fi. Breakfast left something to be desired. We were offered croissants and white bread (neither of which I eat), along with boxed OJ, tea or coffee. We purchased some fruit at a small nearby local mercado to have for breakfast. Overall, for the price, the hostel/hotel was adequate, but nothing special. The brothers who run it were accommodating and nice, although we thought we'd asked one of them to make a reservation at a steakhouse which didn't happen (perhaps language communication issues). Oh well, that night we cooked in the small kitchen instead and had a memorable meal for the 3 of us, so all's well that ends well...
