We read the reviews and we decided to stay for 4 days in a private room. We were a little bit afraid of the reviews before getting to the hostel but when we get there we started to wonder what was bad we the hostel. Surprisedly there was nothing bad with it, it was really good. The rooms are ok, clean sheets, clean floor, secure. The bathroom was cleaner that other hostels and they also have a pet bunny called Barzik. The staff is really cool and helpful. Thanks Natasha, Victor and Marcelo.

I was a little apprehensive about staying in this hostel after reading previous comments, but I had nothing to worry about. I don't know if the hostel is under new management, but the couple currently running it are lovely- friendly, helpful and sociable. The hostess cleans every morning. Our double room was big, with a great view of the volcano, and nicely furnished. Just a short walk into town, with a friendly atmosphere. Very good value for money.

The manager is absolutely insane. He will make you feel like you live with your parents, except that your parents are Hitlers. He will hassle you for money as soon as you enter, if you leave a plate or cup unwashed for 1min, he will demand you clean it (yet takes his time to do his own), he turns off the wifi when he feels like it, he makes up rules depending on his mood (eg. no drinking after 12am..9pm..ever). He lies. There are many more but no space. Similarly priced hostels DO exist. AVOID!

The guy in charge wasn't there when we were scheduled to arrive. Although a pleasant person, it was selective to certain guests. We were told by other guests our sheets for our beds weren't changed and later witnessed this happening. The rules for drinking changed nightly. There was a ping pong take occupying most of the main room, with no balls to play with.

The kitchen is just a small thing to put hot water, and it was really dirty. there is not lockers in the dorms just one in the commun area with 4 spaces. there is a table tennis without the ball. not any information about tours. The hostel door was broken so anyone can come in. not hot water at morning time.

Everything was within walking distance. It took about 10mins to walk to San Pedro Downtown. Stuff was nice, friendly and helpful! There was hot water in one shower and the bathrooms as well as the bedrooms were clean.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was very good. The manager showed us the city and we could ask him every thing we wanna to know.
