    Breakfast was as good as other comments said. The hostel is very well kept, and every night there is an activity or event that you can join to meet other people and have fun. Best hostel I've stayed in so far.

    Amazing hostel, with such lovely owners! Staff were so helpful and kind. The breakfast is the best food I have ever had at a hostel, I would’ve stayed another night just for the breakfast! The Netflix on the tv is also a plus! Would 100% recommend;)

    Had the most amazing stay in hostal central - everything from the staff to the atmosphere was great. The food here is the best I’ve had at any hostel - breakfast every morning was delicious! We did the cooking course they offer which included a tour of the local market and cooking with the hostel’s own chef- it was awesome. The hostel also hosts fun events like free pizza and mescal tasting which was great. Will definitely be coming back!

    Great place. The breakfast is awesome! Like really almost gourmet style. Worth it. The hostel is cute and social as well. I'd only say that the 4 bed dorm I was in is facing the street so that gets kinda loud. But other than that, top hostel!

    Hostal Central was great! PROS: Friendly staff, cute garden, strong wifi for working and truly amazing breakfasts (seriously, I went to bed wondering what they might delight me with the next morning). CONS: A bit far from the center, but still walkable. When I was there, everyone mostly kept to themselves, so not the easiest place for solo travelers (when I left, though, they were starting to have nightly events again). The beds in the dorm aren't the best, but I hear the other beds are good.

    I really enjoyed it. The location is good and room was great. It was really clean. The breakfast was superb, made to order too. The courtyard area was lovely. The staff were super friendly. Great, chilled atmosphere. The only slight negative I’d mention is that the front door lock. you have to pull really hard on the door and can not get in, in a hurry. Made me feel a bit worried when coming back at night In case I needed to get in quickly.
