Nice place, very clean and modern with lots of small separate common areas. Located in safe, upmarket area, near large supermarket and metro. However at night its a short taxi ride to the nearby restaurants and bars

Gave this place an excellent on everything except security (no real lockers available and neighbourhood isn't great), and location (place is way out of the middle town and you are kind of stranded)

Mystic House Hostal, Cartagena, Colombia

10th Aug 2013

This place is very clean, with a nice little common area and balcony. We found it lacked a bar, cheap laundry service, free baggage storage, and the common areas seemed to have more staff than guests, the focus on the big TV didn't really help socialising. I would say this hostel will only get better as they have plans to add additional services and the staff were friendly, relaxed and helpful

Excellent place, good location. Beds were a little bit uncomfortable, and showers were located in a pretty communal part of the hostel. Enjoyed our stay here, great atmosphere and really friendly staff

Good place, quiet , nice friendly staff and interesting quirky building. A lot of street noise in the morning, not necessarily because of its central location, more to do with Quito itself, lots of dogs, car horns and people shouting

This place is in a great location, it's clean and the main woman running the place is lovely. We thought the other staff were rude and totally unhelpful. The showers were cold each morning as they kept running out of gas, not good if you are in a rush. The beds and floorboards are so noisy we couldn't sleep, glad to leave in the end.

100% says it all surely... Perfect if you are looking for somewhere a little quieter, that said it's close to pubs & restaurants. A little bit of a steep climb up so accessibility may be an issue for some. Would definitely go back, top place

12th Jun 2013

We stayed here for two nights, one in a twin, another in a double. I found the place a little depressing, the bar and restaurant wasnt staffed either night, apparently staff rang in sick. The twin room was awful, private toilet was a room split with a common toilet. The double room was tiny. A lot is made of the breakfast, but it's in your bill and it gets pretty sparse if you aren't up early. As a couple sharing you can do much better for much cheaper, try hostal pahuichi.

Nice place, close to buses and the old town. Nice open courtyards and big bar area and pool table. Breakfast is pretty miserable, would prefer a cheaper room without it. Would go back.

starting with the bad, the staff are very friendly but we found they werent actually that good, we asked for our private room to be cleaned after two days, it wasn't after four, our laundry came back dirty after the second attempt and staff pointed us towards the bus terminal rather than help us book tickets over the phone. The good, really nice buildings, layout and gorgeous rooms. Friendly staff, good location. Very good breakfast, safe, clean and comfortable. Sucre is beautiful.

Great location, very basic/bad breakfast. Nice room off lovely internal courtyard. The staff need to find other work, clearly not interested in being friendly , helpful or competent. I wouldn't book a mine tour with them if I had a do-over. Internet just in reception.

This place was OK, positives - very warm showers and warm comfortable beds. Negatives - the staff messed up our booking so we ended up in a dorm rather than a private room. The breakfast is ridiculously plain. Good location near restaurants and a short walk to the bus.

Good place, nice staff, brilliant location. Close to all the pubs and restaurants of Palermo. Suited to couples Mohr than groups due to small common area and lack of bar. Enjoyed our stay.

I didn't give it top marks as we had to wait a long time to check in, my guess is they forgot about us as it was busy. The location is good but its not on the cobbled streets and can be a little off putting on arrival. That's all the bad, everything else was fantastic, would definitely go back and recommend.

Good place, very friendly staff and brilliant location right beside bus station. The rooms are a little out of date ( a little musty ), plumbing is quite bad, a few leaks and breakfast is basic/poor. That said, location is excellent, pool table is a bonus and staff were very helpful advising on approach to a visit to iguazu. We've recommended this hostel to friends already.

This hostel came highly recommended, we are a couple new to the hostelling scene so don't have much to compare to. I was impressed with the common areas, this place creates a great atmosphere through its laid back approach, friendly staff, good tunes etc. Gus' tour was amazing, highly recommended. I was a little disappointed with the bedrooms, beds and overall cleanliness of the toilets and bedrooms could be improved. That said, I'd go back because of the great staff and good location.

Was quite disappointed with this place, it started with the poor location, almost impossible to find ( get directions before even trying), no signs anywhere. Rooms were OK, toilets were poor, musty/damp smell everywhere. The next point isn't the hostels fault but worth knowing - we were woken every night / morning by dogs living next door. The staff were friendly and breakfast was good.
