    Superb

    Such a great experience! The staff was so friendly and helpful. They are awesome at emailing back with any questions you have before your trip. They were very accommodating. Everything was very clean and the descriptions are 100% accurate. The dogs they have in the hostel are the sweetest every, so friendly! I would definitely recommend to anyone who’s traveling to Santo Domingo and will hopefully be back someday! Thanks for everything! You all are awesome! :)

    Everything has been great. Maybe it was too hot at the bedroom and we had to sleep with the noisy fans on, but the rest, ok for a hostel! We will actually repeat in a week, so good!

    The place is exactly as described. Easy to get to, in the middle of everything, short walks to get to and from local restaurants. Clean beds and bathrooms.

    No good communication between Owner and he's staff... My Girlfriend arrived to Hostal and the guy at the Front Desk actually told her, why was she staying there if she didn't had money to pay the taxi even though I already had made the reservation and call during the day to let them know I was going to arrive next day cause I had a Delay on my travel arrangement. And when I called him to ask what was happening he had the same attitude towards me...
