We were meant to pay 198 pesos on arrival but were charged 286 for a better room then we requested (lost in translation perhaps?). We were put in another building so we didn't get a chance to socialize, but were told it had nicer facilities then the main building. Location was amazing and we were able to park out car right outside where they said they would keep an eye on it. Other then the change in price from what we were quoted in hostelworld we were very happy.
1. When we arrived, the gentlemen said he will bring us towels but he never showed up. They told us that they had no clean towels and for us to wait until the following day. 2. Apparently the hostel has two buildings, the main building is connected to wifi and the other was not. We were never informed that the wifi was not functioning in the building they put is in. 3. Also we were never informed that there was an additional deposit for the room key, and as we checked out there was no record.

A good sociable atmosphere, well located, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is pan dulce and coffee. would recommend a stay here.
No activities or coffee or socialising but a cheap, old private room close to the centre. Think cheap hotel without an elevator.
I booked a single room will an onsuite and was given a room with all the above plus kitchen and TV all for the same price, Fantastic.
Beautifully appointed. Wiring in room worn, perhaps a little dangerous. Great neighborhood. Staff very helpful.
This place will probably suit you fine. The kitchen is roomy, though it could use more supplies. It's quiet except for the nearby Hurrican bar. The dorm beds don't wiggle when somebody climbs up. The wifi doesn't work all the way up on the terrace, but otherwise is fine. Not all the lockers have latches. They should fix that. The location couldn't be better, though. This is the only hostel on the hostel sites, but don't let that worry you. It's perfectly sufficient.
