nice big rooms. guest kitchen. clean and great location. definately a good place to stay


Very nice peaceful little hostel! Double rooms were almost hotel standard for South America :) good for couples and relaxing. Very helpful and friendly staff and a decent breakfast !


The cleanliness of this hostel was poor. Every day the bins in the toilets would be overflowing at some stage, they either need to empty them more often or get bigger bins! The kitchen was also quite dirty. We didn't get a key for our hostel room for the first night. You can only be buzzed into the actual hostel, so if there isn't a staff member there you'll be waiting for a few minutes. There are only 3 communal toilets for the dorm


Excelent location, good facilities and very friendly people.


I have rated facilities as poor because the shower did not have hot water! I waited 17 mins exactly and in the end had to face it. Not fair when I made sure I booked somewhere with a hot shower. Everything else good. Staff friendly. Room clean.

Hi, Thanks for your comments, we will double check these topics in the Hostel. Flying Dog Hostels


A beautiful old house, lovely to sit in the courtyards. Very secure with full size lockers. Solid facilities. Would definitely stay again

Thanks :) Flying Dog Hostels


Just thought that due to location improvement to avoid street noise could be beneficial


Friendly staff, the room was okay, but very loud because it´s directly at the main street, kitchen was good equipped but not really clean. Nice backyard to chill out.
