Neighborhood is dangerous and empty as it is a commercial zone. There are lots of hookers and travestites at night. Staff is very good. Gabriela and Marlon were very friendly and helpful but the owner does not seem very friendly and can be quite grumpy. As there was a huge storm on my 2 days at the hostel, my evaluation has to take into account the lack of water, electricity and Internet which may not be a total responsibility of the hostel but affects the way I see it and recommend it or not.
On our arrival, we were told that our reservations were not received. Unfortunately, it was a busy day (a concert was going to happen). They found a room for us. Some misuderstanding happened, because on the website the towels were included on the price (not anymore), and the owner threatened to not accept us, it was a weird situation. In the end they gave us a private room, really clean, the bathrooms were clean as well. Location is good, 30 minutes walking from the historic downtown.
