Staff couldn't find me on the reservation I made online then tried to overcharge me as they didn't consider the deposit I paid through hostel world and then gave me an outdated dollar to peso exchange rate. Rooms were untidy with beds unmade from people who left a while ago. Anyone can walk in and out of the hostel/rooms with no one noticing. Don't know who works there and who doesn't. I also watched a baby sleeping on the sofa fall to the floor and start crying.

In general, my stay at the hostel was fun and comfortable, but there were two incidents as a result of understaffing and poor organization. First, we were told that our bed reservations might have been given away due to a failure of accurate documentation. Then on our second night, my bed was accidentally given to someone else. Luckily these questions were resolved without a problem. Despite the disorganized atmosphere, the hostel guests and staff are friendly and generous.

They lost my socks and a couple other items so don't do laundry here. They didn't refund me and I still had to pay for my laundry. They didn't even apologise. The heat was out and the room was freezing. I think they ran out of gas? My friend had to change beds because water was dripping on her head. Other than that the location was good, vibe was okay, basic hostel. I ended up going to El viajero hostel, which was much better.

This hostel attracts a friendly crowd but is a bit neglected (broken toliet doors, smashed in lockers etc). Parts of the hostel are untidy as well, especially the outdoor area upstairs. The 10 bed dorm is cramped but the beds are comfortable. The location is good as it is only a 15 minute walk from the city´s main plaza. The staff are friendly and there is plenty of space in the hostel to chill. Showers are hot and the breakfast is cereal, bread and coffee. It´s fine for a few days.
