    Rey, the owner acts like he is really friendly and wants to help with everything but it’s totally fake. We weren’t allowed to use the kitchen. He didn’t speak any English and when we made some minor mistakes in Spanish he would make fun of us. My friend spilled some coffee at breakfast and he got really mad at her. The room is alright, the upper beds are very close to the ceiling, so I hit my head a few times. The bathroom is outside and kinda dirty. There were strange people hanging around.

    do not stay here!! This hostel isnt set up for the rain, it resembles a swamp. There is no common area to chill in. the owner is incredibly unpleasant and very intimidating. When we told him we were not staying the 2nd night he got aggressive and started shouting. I went to sleep feeling uncomfortable and not safe at all. We met at others who left this hostel. The Hostelworld reviews are deceiving and we even heard that the owner gave discounts to people if they wrote a good review
