Here are some additional reviews from November/December 2013

'Your hostel is one the cleanest and well maintained places that we have stayed in during our travels in Central America. Julie from U.S.A.

'My father wanted to stay in a hotel, but I wanted to meet other young travelers. It worked out perfectly that we could get a private room, and I could hang out with the other travelers.' Kevin from U.S.A.

'We had fun but we also appreciated that we could get a good night sleep for our early hike the next morning.' Jeroen and Erik from Holland

Sometimes the reservation system shows us as full (for same day and next-day reservations), when in fact, we have plenty of space available. If the system won't allow you to reserve contact us directly at the hostel to confirm availability.

When you reserve through this service, your room will be held until 6:00pm on the arrival date, unless you contact us directly at the hostel to give us more detailed credit card information.

    I just stayed in the Purple House one night, in between bus rides, and it was a very decent place to do so. The hostel was clean and comfortable, and Andrea is a welcoming host. She was also very responsive when I told here there was a problem with the dorm's bathroom -- took care of it that same morning. All in all, a good bang for your buck.
