First at all we have to say that the price was very very low. Maybe quality and price is ok.The owner was really really nice, he gave us a very good treat; we would prefer to give him a better comment. In my opinion the room and toilet were not enough cleaned. It is a good place for backpackers with little money.


We only stayed briefly the hostel was nice Alex needs to smile more.


Close to the center, easy access from the airport. Alex and his staff are welcoming, trustworthy and very helpful; speak several languages; assist you with advices on sightseeing, transportations etc. The place and its equipments are basic but you will have what is necessary; the place is clean, quiet and the value for money is more than good. We had no trouble concerning security while staying there. We had a very good experience in Alex Villa and we recommend the place warmly.

The place is not more than 60% (the 100% reviews are cheats). The AC does not work, and since it did not work two years before, it is likely to remain that way. The bathroom door is almost see-through, and the bath is smelly, though seems clean. The center is 15m by feet, so depending on how bid a city you are from, it is centrally located. The host is very friendly and helpful. However, because of heat, mosquito and the clinking sound of the rain in the gutter drain we had a terrible night


There was nothing wrong with this hostel, and for what you pay it's a pretty good deal. However, there are no lockers and no locks for the doors. The location is pretty good, 15 minute walk to city centre. The owner did do everything I requested of him, but he had a pretty bad attitude and everything seemed like a chore. During my stay there really weren't any other guests either. Facilities were as you'd expect with the shower and toilet kept very clean


Location is perfect since its so Close to Downtown and situated in a very quiet area. The staff was very serviceminded and very helpful.
