This is the WORST hostel i have EVER stayed in across the entire world! I can not believe that YHA International have put their name to this place. I have stayed in many YHAs throughout the world and so had felt I had made a good find... how wrong can one be!? The room was terrible and the staff did not care. They were so unhelpful that it bordered upon nepotism. There was no hot water and the whole place was dirty. Many of the rooms are off the courtyard where there is no curfu so no peace.
Beds are comfortable, lockers are big, and the place has a really good vibe. I would stay here again.
Overall, this was a very nice hostel. The rooms were clean, beds were nice, and bathrooms were clean as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. The one-key-for-each-room system was confusing when you have seven other roommates. The common area was nice, they had working computers, and lockers were available for each person! Breakfast was just bread, so if you want something more you should buy it the night before. Very close to the city center and in walking distance of Cerro San Bernardo.
