    Great hostel! Nice and helpful staff! The beds are huge and comfortable, AC worked well in our private room. The rooftop terasse was really cool and the salsa classes were great. Breakfast was delicious too. Bathrooms are clean and beautiful! The pool is clean and refreshing. There's a cute cat that chills by the pool. Only small negative is the walls are thin so you sometimes hear what's going on outside the room. I'd recommend this hostel!

    This is perfectly located, very central but still in a quiet street. Staff is very friendly and very helpful. The place is clean, breakfast is included, basic but nice still. It has a kitchen where you can cook, a cool terrace where you can chill and a small pool. If this place has room for you, don't look any further!

    The staff at the hostel are very helpful at giving directions and helping to call cabs, etc. Breakfast is delicious with fresh made eggs and toast. WiFi works better in certain areas of the hostel and not so much in others. Showers are clean and have hot water. The beds are big and comfortable as well. It’s not the most social hostel but you can find people to talk to and have dinner with for a short time

    Fun and chilled place to stay. I loved the free salsa class! The staff is friendly and helpful. The only downside is that the pool is super cold, since it barely gets any sunlight.

    Las piezas estan muy buenas, las duchas también. El desayuno muy rico. Lo malo es que las puertas de las piezas no se cierran bien, por lo que con el viento en la noche pegan portazos que te despiertan toda la noche. Y tampoco tiene muy buen ambiente, no hay un espacio para estar con gente y conversar. El bar arriba no tiene mucha onda. Pero es cómodo y la ubicación buenisima.
