I booked into this hostel after having a pretty mouldy experience in another hostel nearby and I was hoping for a good nights sleep and a hot shower.
They were pretty helpful when I arrived letting me check in at 9am as the room was ready. The girl didn't speak English, but I don't speak very good Spanish so can't complain and we got round communication with Google translate.
Returning from my day trip out I took a shower that was hot, but getting out I noticed there was a dead cockroach on the floor. Then more live ones started to appear. The guy on reception was very helpful coming to the room to remove the dead cockroach and get rid of the live ones explaining that there are occasional cockroaches in the area, but the hostel didn't have a problem. Then more appeared and it was to much for me.
After one sleepless night in the hostel (it was now late at night and I had paid) I hightailed it out of there to a more expensive but clean option.
I spoke to some other people who had been there a few nights and they said that they had no problems so maybe I was unlucky.
Saving graces - location is good, very close to the bus station. Also the staff on reception were as helpful as they could be. But if you hate cockroaches like me, then don't stay there!!!
