    Really nice hostel with a great rooftop and a really good kitchen! There is a lot of space to hang out, meet other people and prepare your meals for the next day hike. The rooms are big, the hot water works just fine and with the curtains on the beds you get some privacy. The staff is amazing! They are friendly and know everyone and what they were doing. They'll help you with whatever proplem you might have. The location is really central you can reach everything really fast! Thank you!!

    There are a lot of reviews that highlight this place, but I want to focus on the showers. These are literally the best showers in all of South America. We paid 5s just to come back and use their showers. I would still be in the showers now if it wasn't for like global water crisis.

    Nice, clean hostel in a great spot. But with that comes a ton of street noise. I booked a private room and got no sleep the first night (note, all of the privates are on the same side as the road). I was lucky that it was low season and the kind man on reception the next day allocated me a 4-bed dorm privately for the rest of my stay, which was on the inner side of the building. Hot showers were great. Kitchen and lounge areas are decent. Free breakfast is eggs, bread, jam, coffee/tea.

    No lockers in the rooms, the wifi didn’t reach the room very well and there is only 1/2 charging outlets per room. Beds were comfy and have the curtains for privacy which is very nice. Good location, we booked for 2 nights but in between trekking ended up staying a week.

    Bunk beds are very shaky, paper thin sheets with a thin blanket. Overheard the staff saying thick comforters and blankets were for private rooms only, as well as clean mattress covers. Two toilets available, one in your room and one in the terrace. The men’s toilet in the terrace doesn’t work and was nasty the entire time. Sink in the dorm had hair trimmings everywhere for the entire 3 days we were there, as well as hairs in the shower floor. Terrace is dirty and the bar isn’t open.
