    Sofia wad the first hostel i stayed in during my 5 months central america trip and i really loved it. Its staff is super friendly and helpful.Both the owner Angie , Yun and all the volunteers Jordi, Carlos, Ana were super friendly. It has a nice atmospher too and the only minor thing that i would copmpaln slightly is the common area which tends to get super hot and not always very confortable to hang in. But overall it was a great experience for me and I ended up staying 10 nights in there.

    My girlfriend and I stayed at Sophia’s hostel for a couple of nights in January 2019, before taking the journey to Columbia. The hostel is in a great location, right in the center of downtown, and the girls that run it are friendly and helpful. Laundry is provided there for a very reasonable $3 and simple but wholesome breakfast for $1! Being slightly older, we were surprised to be shown our room was in the garden, basically a bed in a shed, but it was secure and had a fan. :)

    The location was great, easy access to transportation and shopping. the facility however was not so great. There is no air conditioning or ceiling fans which means you sweat all night and most of the day, and in a room with six occupants that can be problematic. add to that the facility had dogs which were allowed to relieve themselves in the outdoor common area, NOT cool. I would have opted for another facility.

    Was ok really. Has everything you need apart from social atmosphere. There's a living room where the family who runs the place hang out. The back garden is pretty nice. I wanted to leave my luggage as my bus was at 8pm, but was told I could only leave it for 3 hours, which I feel added to this low rating.

    Not really hostel, more of a place for people working in the area and looking for cheap accomodations. My private room was next to the kitchen, well literally in the kitchen. The only window of the bathroom next to the room is giving into the room. So you get wake up by people going to the bathroom...

    I never write bad reviews, but this one deserves it. I have never stayed at a hostel with such a bad service. It was kind of dirty everywhere. I was asked to pay extra to wait in the hostel after check out time. Got asked to move seating after breakfast in a a very unfriendly manner so the family could eat. No atmosphere at all. Had a private room that was tiny with plastic on the mattress that made noice every time I moved. Do not stay here!!
