    I only stayed here for 1 very short night but I had a good impression of this hostel. Staff is friendly, facilities are good, it was Friday night and although the place wasn't packed there was a life band playing music in the bar. Would stay here again.

    I was very impressed with the staff at El Hostal! Shortly after I arrived, I dropped a glass bottle on my leg which resulted in cuts & a lot of blood.I have (extreme) hemophobia, so I fainted. I was overwhelmed at how attentive & caring the staff was, especially the owner (I forgot her name). She helped me clean the blood and took care of me while the ambulance came. So much drama but they were so sweet about it! Also...Rooms were very clean, showers were great! Overall AMAZING vibes here!

    This was one of the better hostals I have stayed in. The biggest downfall is it gets a little hot at night in the room, unless you open the door (but then there's a little more noise). The staff was super helpful and there's a lot tours and shuttles you can book directly with the hostel. They're an eco friendly location and are very conscious of their carbon footprint. I'd definitely recommend staying here, if you're okay with a slightly warmer room during the night!
