This was a great find in a great location. It was a bit difficult to find but if you follow the directions provided, you will have no problems. All of the staff were very friendly, provided excellent advice on where to go and what to do, and answered all of our questions. We were only there for two nights but a full kitchen, fridge space and living area were available. Everything was cleaned well daily. I would definitely recommend to someone looking for a private room and a quieter hostel.

great staff and location. a little louder than I expected at night - the neighborhood is deceptively not so residential at night ;)


We stayed two people in a twin bed room. To our surprise, the room was only 6m2 and the beds were bunk beds, Ikea quality. There were no windows in the room and it was noisy as you could hear everything from the common room. Another room was right next to the common room and another right next to the toilet. The shower drain was constantly clogged and there was only one toilet/shower for 10 people. Staff was only around sometimes, and you never knew when. Location is perfect though.


The location was perfect and the hostel was clean and nice. It wasn't even hard to find due to good guidance provided before our trip. Only downside would be its thin walls, thus all the noise from the streets can be heard. The hostel provides guests with earplugs though :) The hostel is perfect for couples or people who want a place to sleep, not for people who enjoy mingling with other hostel guests.


After a few days it did feel like home, very pleasant to come back to after a long day. Jandro is a really friendly host, providing maps, information, kitchen, good ear plugs (necessary ;) ), free access to computers and wifi with a fine internet connection (10mpbs+ in the rooms). The shared space is nice, usually pretty quiet, there was never much contention for the shared bathroom. Only one thing would have made our stay better - thicker pillows! (or 2 pillows per person). Cheers - Matt+Mia

Hostel Mapamundo was awesome! As soon as we arrived we were met by an employee (maybe owner? Sorry I dont remember his name) who was super friendly and showed us lots of stuff to do on the map. The room was huge with our own balcony. The location in the old city was great proximity to lots of sites. Its easy to get lost around the Hostel but thats to be expected. Only complaints: Low water pressure, variable water temp, and small padlock to lock our room which could easily be cut off.

We loved our stay at mapamundo! Great location. No problems with noise outside, we plugged in our fan that was provided and it lulled us to sleep. Kitchen was big and provided us with a few extras like spices. I highly recommend it. Good for us as a couple it felt more like an apartment than a hostel. Fairly large rooms as well. Awesome place! Jandro was very helpful as well.
