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


I had a great stay at Buenavida, the staff were lovely and very accomodating. It is a family run place and i think this added to the friendly feel. Roof terrace was a good place to relax and chill with great views over the city. The wifi was pretty spot on too. Only thing that I would say is that the kitchen could be better equipped however, we were still able to cook meals easily enough.
