    Incredible experience here!! The staff was so kind and helpful they really made us feel at home. We did the Cerro Negro volcano boarding with them and even though it was just 2 of us they made it an unforgettable experience. Food was delicious and there’s lots of activities to do within the hostel. The wifi also worked very well.

    Great location, great spot, but we booked while they were re opening the place. I am sure it will be better once it is fully functional.

    Good location and cheap dorms. And that’s about it. The rooms were not clean, dust and dirt everywhere. Bathroom area (sinks, showers + toilets) were also not clean with stains everywhere. One or two staff members were super nice and helpful and the others didn’t care and were simply rude.
