Fantastic view of otovalo from the roof areas. Nice place to stay, not many people there when we stayed, mostly couples, all fine for us. Short walk from main streets and plazas. Kitchen was ok, facilities to do your own laundry. Good value hostal! thank you chasqui!

Fantastic staff- arranged a transfer from airport at short notice. Very clean, modern, nice place. Drinks pricey. My dorm was directly over the bar, which made it tricky to sleep. Beds are really nice and comfy and all come with individual light. Good wifi in communal areas. Kitchen ok. Favourite thing is that it's very safe - you have a large locker (fits large back packs easily) and a card key to get in to your dorm. Towels included. Only downside really was being directly over the bar.

Our original room had no windows or a/c, so when we arrived they kindly changed us to a twin rather than the double we booked, though this was more expensive. Staff are wonderful!! The young lady on reception was brilliant, very friendly. She helped us to arrange transfer - a real pleasure to talk to. Breakfast cooked for you. Close to shops and restaurants to suit all budgets. Within 5 mins walk of main town. Highly recommend!!

Our room was average - small twin with window looking on to a wall. Opposite the showers. Breakfast included (yay!), includes cereal and toast. Located on a slightly dodgier area of La Candeleria - we were more cautious about going out at night here. Okay hostel, but not my favourite in the area.

I think 60 % is very low, only because the hostel is okay but not your favourite one ;-) and it is normal that some people hate and other love the Candelaria, it depends of each one. Important is that we are on a very secure road...

We stayed in a private room en route from bocas to Panama city. We changed room (they had a nicer one available). Shops and restaurants fairly close. The hostel had a pool and bar. The dorm rooms look great. Friendly owner and staff.

Cool rooftop bar at affordable prices. Well connected-turibus (recommend) starts from outside the hostel, good subway (metro) systems. Staff all friendly and happy to help. Often there are problems with the card keys not working at the first set of doors inside the hostel, but staff quickly sort this out. Breakfast is fine, lockers are spacious.
