That hostel is in a poor condition, the door of our dorm's bathroom could not close, the toilet was broken and there was no place to put your things when taking a shower (no curtains and no chair to leave your stuff on). There was also no lockers or place to put your valuables. The only good thing was the communal meal at night where the atmosphere was nice and where travellers could meet. I would not recommend this hostel.


stray dogs kept kicking the door open during the night to sleep in our dorm room. Apparently the dogs were sleeping on some beds too. Cold showers. No lockers or security. Mattresses sink in the middle. Pretty terrible. Only good thing is the communal dinner they run most nights.


Really nice atmosphere! And the hostel is located close to some of the best bodegas.


The hostel was not in a good condition. When I came, the owners were not there. In our bathroom, the toilet flush did not work, the shower was only cold and the sink was dirty. There was only one bathroom that was OK, for the whole hostel! And even that was not sooo nice. I cannot recommend the hostel, even though its cheap.

Upon arrival-no receptionist. Hostel was overbooked-no space for us(even though paid deposit)owner didnt come to sort it out,just communicated through text msgs with another people who were staying. Told us to go for 1 night to another hostel(which was much more expensive and not nice) and than come back for a free night-costed me more money,lost half a day by moving around. When moved back-dirty,no hot water except for one shower,poor kitchen
