It really came down to the manager. He was very rude and In turn The atmosphere was rather awful. The bathrooms were dirty and the one next to my room was half finished. The was also silly charges like just using the kettle for tea. I guess thats why i was the only one there.

The local were the hostel is located is very poor, i went with other girl and we wore a little afraid of walking in the street by night, but i think thats te normal in Sta Cruz. The staff was gentil but don´t speack inglish (i am braziliam but my spanish is very poor). No hot shawer.


There was no swimming pool, but this was a clean and nice hostel. The hostel owner was very kind, and wanted to help us all the time and provided a lot of information.
