    I walked in after everything that could have gone wrong on my way to Ecuador / the hostel did go wrong. The staff welcomed me and offered to help support me in various ways while I sorted out the issues that I encountered. I felt very taken care of and it made everything seem just a little bit better, even in the face of all the frustrations. I’d definitely stay here again. They were wonderful.

    There was no social atmosphere, it is more hotel like than hostel like. It is a pretty good place to stay at though, is actually in a decent location, the staff is nice, and the comments acting like the place is run down or dirty are not accurate.

    Very Good

    Even tho the location of the hostel is pretty nice and the hostel is big, unfortunately, the facilities, especially the kitchen are desappointing and it's also pretty loud until late (at least near the room we were staying). Also the internet doesn't work properly from the room but maybe we were not in the fancy one. Otherwise the staff is friendly and helpful and the breakfast simple but healthy

    The pictures did not match the property or our room at all. Our room was gross, with a dead cockroach on the ground and another live one under the bed. The “air conditioning unit” was just connected to the room next door so did not actually produce any cold air and barely worked as a fan. The beds were mainly springs and no mattress. I have stayed in over 20 hostels throughout central and South America and this was by far the worst. They false advertised the rooms and it was not clean whatsoever
