The only reason I booked this place as an American is because I heard Caracas is very dangerous and the hostals are not safe.
With that said, I did not get murdered, robbed, or kidnapped while I was here. There. That was the positive.
Here's the negative. ( Deep breath )...I stayed in room 802 where the WiFi is non existent. The hot water they claim is one for literally 60 seconds. Then it turns colder that an Antarctic winter.
The faucet dripped all night and was never fixed. The view from the balcony was decent and I did feel safe.
The bed I slept on was harder than Jerry Sandusky in a room full of boys.
I slept on the couch because it was softer.
The room was old, not updated and kinda smelled like a 1970's curtain that had never been dusted.
For $91 US Dollars a night you will never, and I mean NEVER see me return here.
The restaurant downstairs was ok, and the staff were very friendly.
BTW, I forgot. William is the only guy there that sparks English. He's awesome and was very helpful. Other than that, I stayed in a hostal for $5.82 in Ollantaytambo in Cuzco, Peru and had a better stay than this place.
You've officially been warned.
