Cheap, but far from town center and no air conditionner in dormatory. Staff barely speak english, so minimal spanish skills are recommanded.
This place isn´t really a hostel, it´s a house which rents out rooms. It´s biggest drawback is its location: it´s a good 20 minute walk from Charles Darwin Avenue or a 1 dollar taxi ride. (Most taxi drivers know how to get here as the property has a sign now). The family who runs this place are lovely but don´t speak English. My room was comfortable, well furnished and I had hot water too. There was also a TV in my room and the property was secure.
Access to this hotel should be improved. Streets get flooded after some rain, and there's no other way to get to or leave the place other than by taxi. A bit too far from shops and restaurants. Very nice common areas but in need of a bit of mantainance and cleaning.
