    Greatlocation in the colourful bohemian San Antonio area. Possible to walk to the centre. Hammocks and kitchen provided. Room itself was small with a fan but no window. Given a key to the front gate to let self's in and out. Let us use the dance studio space to privately practice salsa by ourselves.

    first of all: THE FOOD IS AMAZING!!! Big probs to the cook :) the staff was very helpful and kind at all times! Be aware that they have about 3 bathrooms for the whole hostel, which never was a problem tho, as they are not that many guests (but friendly ones). Rooms were fine, kitchen is good, free salsa lessons and other activities possible. It‘s pretty quiet so not much party going on here, which was fine for us. Location also good to get to the city and salsa bars :) recommend staying here!!!

    The back patio is for SMOKING, the smoke blows directly into the kitchen, up to reception, and my dorm was just above and I instantly knew when a cigarette was lit. Next door is two barking dogs, they are out of control. Staff is super.
