    Really fresh & clean hostel. Amazing showers that were always really hot. Nice to have breakfast included, and can add on extras like omelettes. Secure luggage storage, comfortable beds and friendly staff.

    Great hostel! Perfect for couples with big rooms and friendly staff!! The ONLY one thing that was not so good was that one time I took a shower at night time and the water simply stopped was too late to say anything but I was literally freezing. We told them the next morning and of course they apologized but I expected some sort of compensation... But again I must say it was a great hostel :)

    Overall, a nice hostel. We had a private double room that had hot water and great water pressure, especially for South America! The staff were kind and super helpful. Breakfast was included and was your basic continental style, not bad. Location was pretty good and you couldn't really hear the street sounds at all. However, the bedrooms all face an inner courtyard and there is no soundproofing so we could hear everything.

    Lack of hot water. Paid extra for private ensuite room with bathroom however No toilet paper in the bathroom, no running water from shower at all. Had to request they turn on running water at 6 am when we realized we couldn’t use the shower we paid extra for. Charged extra for coffee we did not consume. Over all pleasant staff but no sense of urgency to go above and beyond. Comfortable common areas.

    Staff were friendly and the place was clean. Beds were a little short (I'm 5 foot 9) and the whole place was freezing due to the open courtyard layout.
