The staff were very sweet and the location is pretty nice. The overall state of the hostel was filthy though. The washrooms were unusable at times. Also the private room doesn't have a private entrance which is not advertised online. Meaning you must enter the dorms to get to the private room. It made no sense. It was very loud and hard to sleep. We found the overall experience not to be a Good one, and it is cheaper in the posadas in town.

Most of the staff were pleasant and helpful but it only takes a few bad apples and unfortunately this place has two. The owner is great also and overall the atmosphere is pretty chilled. There was no reading light in the dorm, only a couple of fans and they were positioned directly onto a couple of beds. Leak from the toilet which never got fixed and appeared to be that way for some time. A towel was put down and a mop left to wipe up. Also the kitchen area could have been kept a lot cleaner

The stay was great - the team is multinational and very friendly. You can rent a bike. I did it and, of course, I lost my key. The owner was very helpful and staff helped me to settle the problem. Recommended without any hesitation!

The hostel rooms are so cramped there's barely enough room to put your things and with just one baño, you might have to wait a long time. We received no instructions or info when we arrived, just shown our dorm meaning we hired bikes elsewhere and bought our own breakfast...money we could have saved had we received just a little info. The WiFi is pretty bad and patchy. The free breakfast is decent though adding honey to the fruit salad makes it gooey.

I don't understand how this hostel has such a high rating. We stayed in the 6 bed mixed dorm in which there was barely room for us to keep our bags. The lockers were broken so we had 3 people's valuables in one small cupboard. The rooms were hot so the door was left open at all times, allowing mosquitoes and stray cats with mange into our room. The pillows were small old and mouldy and there were only two toilets shared between the guests.

There was a heavy smell of mold, to the point it stuck with us for the rest of our trip, there were spiders dead and alive in wholes of the walls. which there were also plenty of. we almost were double charged for our space. and unsure how clean the rest of the place was, but the sweet with our own bathroom, was not worth the price. shall not be staying there in the future. the staff were friendly though.
