A great backpacker hostel!! The building is cool, with a fun bar, hammocks, a ping pong table etc. The staff wasn't helpful in suggesting restaurants or the price of day trips, but there is a travel agency inside the hostel, which is decently priced (although the woman gave us bad advice on how long things would take). The breakfast was fine, although you have to pay extra for eggs or pancakes. The biggest problem was the lack of power outlets in the rooms. But a great place to meet people!
I highly enjoyed my stay in Ecopackers. Very friendly atmosphere and so easy to get to know new people. The hostel could not be situated in a better location - the main plaza being just a two minute walk away. Ecopackers also run a very informative and interesting free walking tour around the city which I would definitely recommend. The guide, Luis, has an amazing knowledge of the history of the city and offers great advice about the best places to eat and drink and things to do.

Great hostel in a building with lots of character. In a great location - able to easily walk everywhere. Good security and lockers available. Showers were great in the morning but cold and occasionally a little dirty by the evening. Only downside was the kitchen (to cook yourself) was filthy and not very well equipped.
Very placid hostel. Not really a lot going on at the time when we stayed but very nice place to hangout if you feel like being chilled. Nice hostel with nice people. Good for couples and if you have activities on good place to sleep.
Rooms were nice, large courtyard, small kitchen with almost no way to cook anything.
Great hostel - front of house staff exceptionally helpful! Best beds in South America - well comfy! Lots of common areas and places to sit and chat or have some alone time if you want. Just off the main square so fantastic location.
Great location! Friendly staff and very clean bedrooms and facilities. Hot water! :)
Definitely lives up to its reputation. Having endured some pretty nasty hostels while traveling around South America, Ecopackers was a great treat. The rooms were cozy and beds were super comfy and warm. The bathroom facilities were great with hot showers (although only at certain times of the day). The breakfast was delicious and cheap. The only issue we had was with the staff - be weary of anything related to transportation (taxi/bus)
Good hostel, well run. Comfortable beds, secure lockers, helpful staff, loved the open fire place...would definitely stay here again.
