I was very disappointed with this hostel. I stayed here for three nights and was in one of the upstairs rooms. The hostel is on the edge of the main square and each night that I was there, there was live music until about 3 in the morning, meaning that I didn't get a single good night's sleep. This is fine if you are staying in one of the downstairs rooms, but the upstairs ones don't have proper windows or soundproofed walls, so the music seemed very loud indeed. No breakfast was provided.


Clean and pretty, but there was few privacy.

Hostel was clean, both room and bathroom. Staff(Argentinan) were very helpfull, good location. Good connection with company that took me swimming with Whale Sharks.


Cute little place. Great location although could hear some music from a local bar. Clean room and bathroom. Great to have a mosquito net in the room although they weren't many bugs in the room. Helpful staff.
