Totally worth it


The hostel is 2 blocks from the ADO bus terminal and easy walking distance to the historical areas. Tío Rafa is extremely helpful, full of advice and his daily breakfasts are awesome.


Great place, good advice from owner, excellent atmosphère, 4 blocks from main plaza


El tío Rafa is very helpful with directions and has some great stories. The place is small and sort off funky in a cute way.... The little pool is awesome on a hot night!


The hostel is great for one night between buses due to its location near the ADO bus stations and its cost but the hostel is in need of major upkeep to improve its ambiance. Also, the curtain on the women's bathroom is somewhat sheer so at night with the light on inside, anyone in the garden can see in.


I was happy with the night I stayed there because I didn't really need much. However I needed micro-oven or stove for my dinner but the hostel didn't have them. That is why I gave average for facilities. Anyway mr Rafa found a solution for that so it wasn't finally any problem. Also the fan wasn't very helpful in the dorm. Location itself was good, as the bus station and city center were so close, but the noisy street with cars passing by the whole night made sleeping difficult.
