Very polite and kind people run the place. Stay included breakfast which was a cup of coffee, two slices of white bread and an egg. Location is alright, but one had better be able to speak some Spanish, as the staff spoke no English.

When we arrived at the hostel, we found the manager drunk and without a key to our room. When the key could not be located, he tried to convince us that we could simply lock the door to the room and use a knife to enter through the bathroom, which just made me further doubt the room's security. Without a key, there was no way we were going to stay, so we were forced to quickly locate a new hotel. The manager did not resist giving our money back, and actually helped find a cab to the new hotel.
