    The most lovely hostel, hosts where amazing Aldo was really welcoming and made our trip to San Ignacio extremely enjoyable. Nights spent relaxed on the beautiful hostel balcony overlooking San Ignacio chatting to all the people at the hostel and our hosts will be a fond memory of our travels

    Really nice place. No A/C though. Fans were provided but it still got hot. Aldo was nice and helpful but sometimes wasn’t there at times. Would still recommend.

    Loved old house hostel, the staff were so friendly and welcoming. It was a chilled atmosphere - everyone including the owners sat on the terrace each night. There was a bar downstairs but it wasn’t too loud and they had good live music. Really close to the bus station and the staff organised tours for you. It had a well equipped kitchen and good showers. The only down side was no A/C but each bed had its own fan so was fine!

    Beautiful hostel. Amazing vibes. Excellent staff. Very clean. Well equipped kitchen. Good location. Unfortunately the dorms are very noisy at night and the mattresses not comfortable and I couldn't sleep.

    Good spot to be centrally located. Beds were horrible, was like sleeping in a V shaped mattress. Outside of that, the staff helpful, always around, and the entire hostel was very clean. Music below wasn't too bad, actually we though the noise from the road was a bit louder (on a hill, so everyone races up it with their exhausts blaring) overall bang for buck not too bad.

    I’d steer clear on Friday and Saturdays . The organization below the hostel is young expats that like to have loud parties long into the night
