    Lovely place, and a lovely family who were very accommodating! Stayed here over a week in total and it was always very homely. It's a nice quiet place, ideal for those travelling with friends - cheap cheap privates! Top location, too!

    I wish I could give extra points for the staff at this place. The owners are so nice and so helpful (they also speak perfect English) and considering the price of a private room the facilities are great. The cleanliness can’t be faulted at all, and the location is just outside the main square and very close to a street with loads of nice bars and restaurants. Would recommend everyone to stay here!!

    This is a decent hostel if you're not a picky traveler. Great value for money and good location but the hot water in the showers is unreliable and the pillows are hard. The breakfast, which costs $2.50, consists of three options: `1. two eggs (as you like), two bread rolls, a bowl of fruit, and tea or coffee; 2. one pancake with syrup, a bowl of fruit, and tea or coffee; 3. yogurt and granola, a bowl of fruit, and tea or coffee.

    Overall I would NOT stay here again. 1. I got bitten everywhere by bed bugs. 2. They give you one key for everyone to share. 3. You're not allowed to use the kitchen before 2pm. 4. The eggs they cook for breakfast, are the WORST. Is it really that difficult to cook an egg, without burning it? FFS 5. The rooms are jam packed and not much space. You couldn't even open the door all the way because a bed was in the way. The bathroom door had a bed nearly blocking the way.

    For the few areas that this hostel was lacking it was definitely made up for by the owner and her husband who were friendly, welcoming and overly helpful.

    This hostel is a bit run down however the beds are comfortable and there is hot water. I stayed here because reviews said the staff spoke English and were very helpful. I didn’t experience that.

    Pros: - good location, small town so most things are - friendly staff Cons: - everything’s a bit old and tired - kitchens not available for use in the morning - no real atmosphere whilst I was there

    The staff here were very rude and did not try and make any atmosphere at all. The hostel was quite dark and the common areas not very nice, and the kitchen was only open from 2pm which makes no sense, if breakfast is only optional they should allow people to use the kitchen to make their own breakfast. The general atmosphere wasn't great and I changed hostels early

    This place really is bad. Cockroaches and spiders in bathroom! Room/bed/everything smelt and felt of damp (because it was). Paper thin walls/windows meant the communal area noise kept us up till 2am. We had a private room, and were checked into another hostel by 9am next day. Stayed in hostels (dorms/privates ) all over S. America and we both agreed this was our worst stay of the lot. Perhaps we were unlucky. It was fairly cheap, and the shower was warm, but do yourself a favour and avoid.
