    The place is amazing, for being an hostel it feels like a very cool hotel, you also get privacy with curtains around your bed , a lamp and 2 plugs to charge your phone or wherever. There's a curfew, so, that's not very cool The staff was very cool I wouldn't recommend to go out at night or walking around as is a not very safe neighborhood, but you can order an uber to specific place and back and you will be just fine

    All and all very nice hostel, with nice bar/restaurant... They hed a lot of activities almost every day, and security around the clock. As a solo traveler I felt its really big, It was a bit hard to meet people cause there is not one comoom area where everyone sits, there are a few and very big areas. On weekends nice party it was fun. the only complain I have is that the room is very very dark.

    The shared spaces were very nice and the staff wer attentive and responsive. Our room was not as expected. The shower was broken and several of the outlets and lights did not work. The toilet was also broken on arrival but the staff was able to fix it right away. The website needs improvement. Could not find information about the front desk hours and we could not get in touch by phone to let them know of a late arrival. Also tried to book an excursion online and it was not processed.

    We stayed here one night to catch a flight home. They were having a do play music til at least 2am when quiet hours were stated as after 12. It was so loud and the bass was shaking the bed. If you have something like this planned a warning would be nice because we would have stayed elsewhere.

    This is not a hostel to stay at if you are looking to meet people. The main communal area was pretty much unavailable the whole time as the hostel was constantly hiring it out for external events. Our room was clean but the shared bathrooms were not cleaned regularly. The location was good - 15 min walk to the main square and the hostel will organise lots of tours for you which was helpful. Also the lift doesn’t work so if you have a heavy bag request to stay on one of the first few floors

    Staff is not very nice treating plus they are not flexible. They insist to take all money at the start. They refuse to give you even half an hour tolerance in check out time. They cannot answer why I had to pay more than I should even doing day conversion from dollar to peso. They are strict about changing the duration of stay even if you tell them 3 days before (once you check in, you have to spend the whole time, you can never reduce duration). I can hardly accept to rent again there!
