    This is a top notch hostel. Social but not party, you can sleep when you want but its very easy to meet people and go do absolutely whatever. This is exactly what a hostel should be. Beds are comfortable and private with curtains. Reception is acommodating, helpful. Showers are warm and plentiful. You can wash clothes and leave luggage. Not super cheap, but you get what you pay for here. TOP NOTCH.

    I LOVED staying here. Hostel activities were the best. Had a amazing family dinner with fun people. Went on a sunset walking tour and saw the city and met a ton of new friends. It the best of all was the hiking trip. We walked through waterfalls and caves and had such a great time. Plus social vibe at the hostel was amazing perfect for a solo traveler.

    REALLY GOOD!! We stayed there for Christmas with some friends, and it was amazing, the atmosphere, everybody was super kind to us, there was more than enough space for all of us, we met a lot of people, played chess, played the guitar, sang all together, etc. it was the best Christmas dinner I could have ever imagine far from my home and family, with people that I don't even know. It was a great experience, the staff was always willing to help us and make us feel comfortable!!

    Well located hostel with all the things that you need. Only down for me was that the mattress of my bed could feel that has been use for a long time since it was already really compressed in the middle. Otherwise everything good and would recommend the hostel.

    Great place with great people. Not that modern though. They use the “lock the room if you’re the last one out” system which I don’t love. The bathrooms were not the worst but weren’t super awesome either. Staff was super great though. I lost my locker key and they helped me out without charge. Location wise, it’s central to everything, but also far away from everything.

    Difficult to fully rate this stay as a group of more than 25 students had booked in. All hostel activities were cancelled and there was little to no atmosphere. I had heard great things but unfortunately I didn't get to experience any of it here. I was lucky that I had friends staying in Eco hostel and just went there in the evenings instead.
