Gustavo and Brenda, the owners, are very nice and helpful people, they make us feeling like home, definitely I would recommend this place for someone visiting Caracas. The location is also pretty good, in very safe area at the center city and right next to the subway.
Gustavo is great whe he's around, but after 4pm forget it! he's out of sight and out of mind. too many mosquitos in his home and in th rooms ouch!
The owner's nice & offers airport pick ups for a fee, which helps with the "feeling safe" syndrome for Caracas. Hostel is expensive for Venezuela. The owner can help change your currency if needed, but only for half what your dollar is worth. I strongly advice if you need any BsF to exchange at either the airport or a reputable store owner. As of Nov 17, 2014 US$1 = 120 BsF. Anything less than 90BsF is a rip off. The location allows easy access to the metro & food. Good security.
If something has been mentioned several times then their might be some truth to it - no? This does not feel like a hostel although it is. It feels like a home where you are always welcome!! :) The owners are very friendly and forthcoming and your privacy is fully respected so you get the best of both worlds. Stay here!! :)
Great help, pointed us in all the right directions, very friendly with great hospitality, definatly recommend dal bo hostel to all travels
It was very helpful for two non spanish speaking travelers to get som help in caracas the first days of our travels. Gustavo helped us with every thing we needed and even more. So if ur spanish isn't to good, and u feel uncertain of caracas this is the place to stay.
