    I had a great experience here. This place was located in a perfect Central location in the romantic zone. The host Alejandro was super helpful and very nice the entire time. Engaged in conversation and was there if you needed anything. I would definitely recommend this place.

    The staff member was great and the owner was awesome! My major complaint was night one the a.c. was turned off and it was extremely hot. I wasn't able to sleep. There was a small oscillating fan for circulation but there should be more if the air is going to be turned off. I was also really looking forward to accessing the roof lounge but sadly it's only open thurs-sunday. Rain shower head was great with warm/hot water!

    Great, comfortable sleep. If you are looking for a place to crash and get some good rest this is the place. They turn the a/c at night so you get some good sleep. the owner and staff will go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. I had to store some luggage while I went out of town and they were happy to store it for me. I couldn’t be more thankful for that. I would definitely stay here again. It’s not a party hostel but who needs then when you are steps away from all the bars.

    Alex who runs the place is a super friendly person, helpful and really cares about how your experience is going. The Location of the place is just perfect, one block away from where the bars and couple from the beach. They have a Lounge bar in the rooftop, which is cool, however, I would recommend Alex to open the rooftop during the day for the guest since there are not open common areas where you can talk with other guests, so the atmosphere was not promoted here.

    The website says they have AC in private rooms and they DO NOT! False advertisement. You’re just paying for location. No TV no amenities really just a hot room. Another hostel has great $$, TV on site, and AC in private rooms w/ staff on site at all times!

    Fine for a night but terrace was closed and no staff. There was no apparent way to turn the lights on or off. Form was just a bit room open to the rest of the limited spaces. Not very clean. For the price, I expected something better.

    Only one bathroom for the entire hostel. Strong smell of cleaning products throughout hostel. You can get locked out if someone accidentally double locks the door. Owner is very friendly.
