Best breakfast I ever had in a hostel! And great atmosphere in this cute hostel :)


Not a terrible stay but location wasn't the greatest. No lockers to store stuff. Breakfast was actually great - bread, cheese and meats. Owner was nice and sociable. Not the greatest social vibe. Overall clean and good showers


The kitchen is good and the pool nice, but the place was moldy, the beds very squeaky and the staff very loud - even in the middle of the night. I understand guests making noise at nights but not the staff. The location wasn't exactly bad - still a walking distance to the centrum and a very nice neighborhood, but it was kinda awkwardly between close and far - a bit too long a walk, a bit too close for a subway ride.


Really comfy bed and clean bathroom. Loved being able to wash our own clothes. Breakfast didn't have much selection and no wifi in the bedroom. Helpful staff :)


Feel good: spacious, enough bathrooms for guests. Good music! There is a swimming pool! Not so good: the owner seems very enjoy talking and drinking with his guests at late night then he get up really late the next day you have to wake him up and ask him for the breakfast. If you have a laundary, dont expect he can give you the same day or next day. He dont use a dryer and just use natural way to dry the clothes: hang them in the courtyard and let them dry naturally...have to push him everying.


Ivan makes the place


Great hostel, and lovely staff! I had a great weekend away, and it was nice to just relax by the pool! Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, and made me feel at home. Location is ok, the metro is close by so you can go and see other places. But overall, i wouldnt hesitate to come back!

A hostel set in a residential area of middle income folks...Very quiet, very orderly and a host that is one a million. The man has the acumen to mix with all and yet stay alooof of peoples private lives. A wonderful place in a wonderful setting.


Excelent! The staff was very friendly and helpful and made me feel very much at home that I went back a second time!


LOVED Ventana Sur! by far the friendliest hostel. I thought it might be hard to meet people in a small hostel but it was certainly not a problem here. Everyone is very welcoming. Its like a little family away from home. Ivan is a very warm hearted generous man.I have never met an owner who is happy to invite you to their home and have an absolute blast doing it! I loved every minute of my stay.

It was not clean, 1 working shower what also not was clean. Room where not clean. no lokkers.


I had a great stay at ventana sur, Ivan the owner really makes you feel as if you're a guest in his own home & wants you to have the best time possible. The breakfast is good and served until everyone has eaten, no 9.30 finish, so everyone can have a lie in without missing breakfast if they choose. Good BBQs were also thrown & the staff Jason & Lena were great company as well as helpful.


Really loved staying here such a nice chilled out atmosphere! Days spent chilling at the pool and lovely BBQ's at the pool. Little out of the centre but great metro service. Thank you for making me feel so at home Evan and Jason!
