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.
Amazing hostel! The staff is incredible, Rafa is such a nice person and Jelly the same, both ready to help. Ask them for hints!! They can make you feel home, really good mood. About the hostel itself, looks like a beautiful small house and everything was good, clean, also perfect location. Safe, the door is always closed and when you arrive or want to leave whenever you want they open for you. Rafa makes you breakfast all day. All that for these cheap prices. One of the best hostels I've stayed.
Only stayed one night, but Rafa is always there at the hostel to open the door so irs very safe. Also I cooked myself some meal and the kitchen was very complete. Only thing is I had to shower in cold water, but it was warm enough out not to bother me. People there were cool, have nothing bad to say
