    A quiet clean place to stay, close to every hung in San Marcos! The breakfast is amazing it’s at a restaurant a 3 min walk away. There’s no wifi in the dorms so you have to go to reception.

    Didn’t end up staying here because they overbooked the actual hostel and stayed at Casa Maya, a 5 minute walk down the street, which was nice but the ordeal what frustrating and should have been taken care of. But i loved Casa Maya and the free breakfast was incredible

    Well located hostel in San Marcos. The included breakfast is really yummy (you have it in the restaurant connected to the hostel called fe). Not a massively social hostel, no activities going on/ harder to meet other people. Very basic but was clean and did the job.

    Thought the worst after reading reviews. Don’t like the staff at all. Rooms were quite clean but bathrooms not the best. There was warm water that was great! Drinking water wasn’t provided, big con. Breakfast included and this was delicious so that made me happy.

    Good location and price but not the best in terms of management. We booked 2 private rooms for 3 nights and ended up spending the first night in a room of 5 with 3 single beds between the 4 of us. There is also no free drinking water, but apart from that it is not a bad hostel.

    This is the worst hostel i’ve been to. The property is not at all well maintained which is a shame as the location is great and there is a lot of potential. The bathrooms are filthy and the bed mattress was extremely thin that I could feel the wood of the bed. There was no 24/7 reception service. This is a place to go only because its cheap and no longer than one night.

    The staff were unfriendly, the bathrooms never had toilet paper, the water frequently didn't work, there was no security to speak of. This had a nice close location, but other than that, I had a bad experience.

    The person who worked at the front desk was rude and unhelpful. There is no kitchen and he tries to charge for drinking water. San marcos rocks but this place is sh*t
