My girlfriend and I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights. It was our first trip ever abroad, and the staff at Hostal Papaya was really nice. Knowing some Spanish would have helped a lot, but a few staff members were fluent in English and more than willing to help. There is an excellent plaza right outside with plenty of wild nightlife & various restaurants. Everything was clean, and the beds were fine. Not a crazy party hostel, and a short walk to all the major sightseeing locations.

Getsemani is a great location and the hostel is located right around the square close to great restaurants and bars. Staff was nice and breakfast included eggs!

Loved this place :-) the staff was great, always friendly ( even though I got into a habit of last minute extensions ) and full of good advice :-) the location is amazing and there's a hammock to escape the city in if you need to. What more could you want?

Apart from the terrible party noise in the courtyard (which made us leave to another place because it was impossible to sleep) it is a nice hostel!

Had a really good stay here, right next to Trinidad square which is full of restaurants, bars and great street food, also a corner shop where you can buy 1 Litre Aguila for just 3k pesos! Also cheap beers at the hostel which is great along with snacks and other things. Free breakfast was good and the staff were all so lovely and friendly and helpful. And TV/social room is nice too. Staff again were the best

Seems like of New or at least an all new staff. They had this annoying thing with the front gate were it was always locked. Most of the other hostels in the area don't do it so it didn't really add much to the security just became a major annoyance. The beds are made of wood and supper noisy so if someone on the bunk moves you will be woken up. Overall not good not bad just your average hostel.

Nice, comfortable hostel. Great location, close to the party but still quiet. Very friendly staff. The rooms were very comfortable and clean although the wifi didn't reach that far, it only worked in the common areas. Nice hostel to relax for a few nights. Not a party hostel.

Lovely, clean hostel with friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere. Great location. Only suggestion is to improve the configuration of beds in the 5 bed dorm.

Very helpful and friendly staff, always willing to help in both Spanish and English. Clean rooms (a bit small), shared bathroom, great common area in courtyard with great graffiti art and cheap beers. Awesome location right at the heart of getsemani
