Sad to post low score. Views from hostel are amazing. Beautiful area. I'd give the highest rank, except that taxis don't want to go there. Getting back MAJOR problem. No one knows where it is, drivers don't know the street, too far, they hate cobblestone roads. Will be lucky to get a taxi on your 5th try. TAKE PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS with you! Staff not very welcoming, some warmed up later. Front desk girl (black hair) was amazing! Hide valuables, Item stolen from room. Great local bars.


Amazing view and very helpful staff but I don't think this makes up for the poor location (a 10-15 minute bus ride) from restaurants, bars or shops. The house, rooms and bathroom are a little tired and dated and there is a shortage of bathrooms......


The views are amazing, rooms are of good size, very clean, could use more bathrooms, some staff were not very helpful


I had a great time at Casa 579. Everybody was really nice and helpfull. The view from the terrasse and dining room is amazing! It s the best hostel where I have been.


Everything great, people, place, atmosphere. I would definitely reccomend it to everybody!
