We stayed for 4 days & 4 nights and really enjoyed our accommodations. The Morning Staff was especially nice & sweet and made us feel like their own kids. (Hola Señora Mary

Morning coffee was provided free, as was toast. The location near plaza periodontal couldn't be beat. Our only complaint was that the immersion shower could have been hotter with more flow.

Nice location and mood. People are friendly and is very quiet and safe!!!


Great location andd really nice staff. Our Spanish wasn't great buthey were very patient! Clean rooms and nice breakfast. There wasn't much of an atmosphere but we were on flying visit so we didn't mind.


The staff is really friendly , but can not speak English , it's had to communicate for us . Place is really clean, the breakfast just ok . Shower is hot and very clean. Price is cheap , good place to stay and save money.


Muy bien, aunque un poco de ruido!


They lost my reservation along with 3 others within an 18 hour span. Nobody was around for me to pay when I needed to leave so I guess that was a plus. They keep the door locked at all times and don't give you a key, so people coming in at 5 am wake everyone up with the bell. All dumb.


Definitely one of the best accomodation we had on our journey, but one of the most expensive ones as well. More like a hotel, and thats why the atmosphere lacks of enthusiasm. Location is great, close to lots of bars and to the ancient town area. Good breakfast, good pool, reliable wifi, ac works and is essential because we had no real window in our room.


Nice hostal. Definitely not a party hostel but very chilled and welcoming. The staff don't speak English which I quite liked as it felt a little more locally run, but could be a minor issue for some travellers with limited Spanish. Located close enough to the sights of la canderalia. Free breakfast which whilst not the most exciting, was a nice touch. Staff were continuously (no joke) cleaning which kept the place tidy. Could of maybe done with a fire or heater as felt a littlecold at night.
