Wonderful staff, great location, comfy beds & duvets, sadly wifi doesn't reach bedrooms but this is only a small issue. Showers were mostly fine, we had a couple of duds at busy times but we stayed in about 3 different rooms and were dealt with professionally and amiably. Would return every time!


We were greeted by friendly staff everyday. They worked with us even though our schedule changed. They had all the amenities we needed such as tp, towels (for a fee), hot showers, warm beds, good internet. It's located just a short walk from the plaza de armas. There was an awesome 2 hour laundry service just a block away. Breakfast was cheap. The free breakfast included bread, jam and coffee. For just a little bit, you can get a breakfast sandwich or eggs. Staff was always available.

Amazing hostel. Warm rooms, super comfy beds, safe, clean, good internet. The only issue was rooms on the first floor are very disturbed by people walking on the second floor. Request a second floor room if possible. Otherwise amazing and I will definitely stay here again!


Great location- about 10 minutes away from main plaza. Staff was mixed- some were friendly & some were a bit stand-offish. Really liked- our room was big & very comfortable w/ good showers. The TV had seemingly unlimited English-language channels. Decor of the whole place was beautiful. Wifi was good when you could get it, but not available in the private rooms. Breakfast was basic but paid-add-ons were of good quality. Amenities like free hair dryer & secure luggage room were perfect.
