    Purpose is the best hostel I’ve stayed in in Latin America! The owner and staff are sooo lovely, the wifi is great (we streamed Netflix with no buffering), the kitchen is amazing - it’s small, but it has everything you could possibly need: a blender, a KETTLE, Tupperware, everything. Free tea and coffee all day. An AMAZING view from the roof. No visitors are allowed because you don’t get a key for the front door or the rooms which I found odd but it was really safe. Warm showers. Perfect place!

    Lovely hostel, lovely people. Amazing rooftop view of the volcano on an evening. Not massively social as no place to socialise after 11pm but nonetheless a really good place and had a great time here!

    The view from the rooftop was amazing overall a cute hostel with nice facilities! I would describe it as a very zen place for people who hike during the day and like activities as yoga and reading.

    Decent place, rooftop is a nice vibe. Quiet and clean! Only stayed for 1 night but the beds were very squeaky, every time someone moves on the bunk the whole thing shakes/ squeaks. And the hostel has a lot of echo. You can literally hear everyones conversations, flushing the toilet, running the tap etc. Overall tho its cute, quiet, staff were very friendly and the wifi worked decent (not the best but okay)

    Very Good

    Nice clean place with a rooftop with view of the city and the erupting volcano. Atmosphere was not nice though. The staff bother you about noise all the time even if you aren’t very loud. They don’t let anyone in that isn’t staying there. My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was mostly ok, but on the day we checked out they were really intent on making us leave right after checking out. Just a very unwelcoming vibe. I have never been in a hostel and left with such a nasty feeling.
