Great hostel in a beautiful location! I stayed here for only one night together with my sister. But it felt like two nights because when we arived at 4 am they were very helpful and let us sleep in some free dorm beds :). When my sister was feeling a bit ill the next day they went out of their way to try and help us. Becauae it is run by this nice family it has a very welcoming atmosphere about it, the only thing was that this also created a bit of a sloppy organisation.


No locker in dorm room and no hot water in one of the bathrooms and luke warm in the other. Breakfast was okay.


After staying in different hostels all around La Candelaria, this was the worst. No atmosphere at all, you can hear everything your neighbors are talking about, not enough bathrooms.. Much much better options so close by!!

Positives: - Great location in la cabdelaria and walking distance to bars, restaurants and the old town square. - nice breakfast of eggs (fried or scrambled), bread and tea/coffee. Negatives: - Atmosphere wasn't really there, pretty quiet. - No reception / bar area in reality so always had to find the people working at the hostel for any questions etc - only 1 (warm) shower for the entire hostel was annoying
