El Viajero was a huge disappointment. The main problem being that many of the front desk staff were NOT friendly and were not helpful. One guy would basically ignore us when we came up to ask questions or recommendations and refused to call us a cab to the airport after we were told that was the best way to get a cab. The breakfast was OK. We paid for a 6 bed co-ed room and my boyfriend and I were put in an all male dorm. The room itself and the bathroom were pretty disgusting.

Had a great stay. The tv room with airconditioning is a great escape when it gets really hot during the day and the common areas are great to meet new people. Only thing I missed was a pool.

Bad staff, rude and desorgnised... the place under the bed is not safe and some are broken, we felt even with the bracelets anyone could get in tf hostel, no one was really checking who is getting in or out. You could have like ambience music... bad internet in the rooms.. etc. Breakfast was good, and the location as well

Nice place, ac was a lifesaver. Good breakfasts, bathrooms cleaned regularly, each bunk has a lockable cage. I thought it was a little pricey but not too bad

Absolutely loved this place, chilled out vibe, a couple of hammocks, clean and lovely.

nice enough hostel with very helpful staff. The only downsides (for me, anyway) were the immense number of occupants and the breakfast that certainly left a lot to be desired for those that are health conscious. This hostel certainly served its purpose though, cheers.

The hostal was very good, staff is nice. You can sleep well, there is silence. you can take what you want for breakfast. You must wash the dishes but what did you expect? This is a hostal so it's faire enough. Anyway, break fast it's free

My first time at a hostel and it was great. The bartender Alessandra is wonderful !!! Bonus are the salsa lessons :)).

Being handed your own bed sheets to make your own bed does not bode well, as does not being shown to your room. The hostel was noisy, our ac didn't work, the staff were unwilling to help an only did so begrudgingly. The kitchen is awful and not well stocked, no ac in the daytime, and they only do laundry on certain days and were 'full' by late morning so we had to go elsewhere. It may as well be a party hostel. However breakfast is good and the location handy.
