    Great time here as a solo traveller! The building is well situated in San Ignacio and well kept. The staff were really helpful with plenty of tips on the most affordable and fulfilling ways to visit all the local archaeological and natural sites. The atmosphere had great vibes and I was able to meet new friends and visit attractions with some really great people. I was also impressed by the cleanliness of the site, as everything including rooms is cleaned every day. Thanks old house!

    Great location in San Ignacio. It’s close to the center of town and the bus stop is just a 5 minute walk away. The staff is friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere too, real easy to make friends. Wifi is fast and reliable. Only wish there were more power sockets in each room, there’s not enough for everyone in each dorm room.

    Very Good

    Great location in San ignacio especially if you want to do some of the excursions. Bedrooms would benefit from more plug sockets and some require new mattresses as you could feel the wood underneath of one bed. Hostel cleaned everyday, bathroom and kitchen facilities very good - lots of unexpected herbs and spices which was great! You can easily arrange tours with the hostels, although all staff could be more forthcoming with information e.g. recommending more than one restaurant etc.
