The patio is very nice, and so is the terrace. Rooms are ok, shared bathroom is quite disgusting. We had quite a bad experience there : They forget we book a 2nd night so when we came back at 9pm, there was no room for us. They improvise one, which had not been cleaned for a VERY long time. We ask them if they could call a taxi for us, which they forget too. and lastly, on both nights, we never had a chance to get the towels and toilet paper they say you would have.


The only thing to say really is that there are cleaner, more organized hostels even closer to the Plaza that are cheaper than this place.

La Posada del Virrey is a nice hostel even if i have been welcomed at 7am by a man still half-sleeping. I couldn't help me and just said "wait one hour, then the cleaning lady will come"... but a really beautiful roof terrace!
