    Great hostel with great staff and a nice atmosphere. We stayed in a 9 person dorm and had spacious beds with excellent mattresses. Only downside were the lack of functioning lockers and a really basic breakfast. But in our opinion those we're well compensated by the other aspects. Especially the owner and staff we're very helpful. They helped us arrange a guide for some activities who wasn't overpriced but still was worth every centavo!

    Wonderful staff, awesome location, just great vibes all along. There is also a cat. This was my first hostel experience and definitely exceeded my expectations. Walking distance to the main plaza and lots of other bars and restaurants. I would definitely come back here when I go back to Santa Cruz.

    It was a really good hostel in terms of staff and location but the security is one thing I would improve for future guests, I.e more lockers to store valuables in, especially within rooms! Aside from that the staff were great and the general cleaniless of the rooms and surrounding areas were great! I would definitely recommend to others if they have a more secure place to secure valuables

    The top bathrooms were often without toilet paper & soap. Outside showers had ragedy curtains. I did experience the nicest mattress out of any hostel I have been to. Huge in size and very comfortable. I would be nervous to sleep on the third bunk, very high up without rails. Gorgeous murals all around. The building itself and the location are probably the best part. One minute away from main plaza and great restaurants. Nice craft beer at the bar. Improvements needed, but I would stay again.

    Bonito lugar en el centro. Solo que es muy ruidoso porque se comparte el espacio con un bar, no apto para gente que no puede dormir con mucho ruido.

    locker were not very usefull, showers were okay, bed is nice. I had quite an issue when arriving really early in the morning - around 5 am. No one seem to answer the door and i had to be in the streets, in the cold harsh Wind untill almost 8 in the morning to enter the hostel. I knocked their front door each 20 minutes, half an hour, since 05:20 untill almost 07:30. Only at eight the door was open. And beware, there is no such a thing as street sign that can indicate the precise location of it.

    Not impressed. I'm an experienced traveler and I have very low standards for "comforts", these guys can do better. No outlets to be seen in the bedrooms (meaning my phone was perpetually at 0 battery. And the staff seem to know nothing about the city? I am fluent in Spanish and all conversations were in Spanish so this wasn't an issue of communication. Me: "Is there anywhere in the area you'd recommend for food?" Front desk: "Yes, there are restaurants in the area." This kind of thing repeatedly

    Honestly, this is why I'm not only willing to pay more for my accommodation (it wasn't just this hostel), but why I'm also beginning to use for my accommodations. I didn't find very much to be redeeming about this place, and I'm not getting into any details. Needless to say, the following hostel that I chose helped to make up for this stay.

    Stayed for one night before flight. Relatively close to airport and transfer sorted for you. Contact on FB not via email. Hostel not very lively. Breakfast some fruit and slices of baguette. Showers warm!
