    This hostel felt very welcoming and colorful. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm and the room was very spacious. They have extra covers in the closet for anyone that needs them. The shared restrooms / showers were very clean. Breakfast was great. I loved the security of the hostel and having our own key to be able to come in and out at any time. They offer all type of tours at this property as well. The distance to the mall, stores and bus terminal is very convinient in walking distance.

    Loved El Punto! Super friendly and welcoming staff, spotless clean facilities, delicious breakfast (including homemade jams!), lovely bright colours, nice atmosphere. If you’re a German traveller, this is the place for you! (Apparently the owner is German.) The location is great, very close to the bus terminal and a 10 minute walk to the main square.

    El Punto is a lovely hostal, well located within easy walking distance of the bus station. We had a private room with en suite and terrace - excellent value for money. The hostal doesn’t have a kitchen but there is a service point with fridge, microwave and kettle. The hostal cafetería provides delicious homemade food till 9 in the evening. Breakfast is included in the price with a wide spread of tasty things. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Really enjoyed our peaceful and comfortable stay

    Great location close to the bus terminal, staff were super friendly and helpful! Not much in the way of a kitchen to prepare your own food but the breakfast was good and the cafe looked great!

    A pretty nice hostel with a good cafeteria. Breakfast was free and plentiful and the prices for lunch and dinner were quite reasonable for high quality food. The rooms around reception can be quite noisy, particularly in the mornings with people checking out, so ask for a room closer to the back. There is no kitchen due to the cafeteria so keep that in mind.
