    This is a great place to stay. The neighborhood is safe and clean. There are restaurants, markets, bank, and pharmacies all within walking distance. The national park is close too if you are looking for a cultural experience. The rooms were very clean and the staff very helpful. All positive vibes with this hostel.

    Beautiful, clean, and very quiet hostel. It is highly secured with a locked entrance before you come in. It’s nicely decorated and looks modern. Even though breakfast says it is included in the price, there is a $5 charge. The receptionist was helpful in guiding us to the nearest COVID testing place. The beds were comfy. In the dorm, there are shelves, book light, and outlets for phones for each bed! It can feel cramped for the 6 bed room if all are there. Hot showers and strong WiFi.

    We stayed only one night there and arrived late in the evening. The lady at the entrance was lovely and she made us an amazing breakfast. The decor in the hostel was amazing. The atmosphere was really quiet due to COVID probably, common rooms were empty. The private room offered everything we needed and was clean. There is a parking across the street which costs approx 7usd for a night.

    The hostel was overall very clean and quiet and is about a 25 minute walk from the center/downtown. The staff was also friendly. The only problem I had was the wifi stopped working as I was in the middle of work and it took several hours to fix and I couldn’t work and that’s a major problem. Other than that everything was fine and I’d stay here again

    Nice looking place it's small there is a little area to sit, it's very clean, not the best part of town. The dorm is nice with curtains a light and outlet by the bed, breakfast is 5 dollars I didn't try it. If you want to have a quiet hostel atmosphere go here.
