    Nice common area with tons of information on activities and very helpful staff. Only negative is it’s not in the coolest neighborhood. Perfect safe and clean but not the trendy parts of town. Overall I recommend.

    Great stay here before my San Blas trip to Colombia. Good location near the metro and feels safe. I arrived at 3am and someone was able to let me in and they were very accommodating. Great value private room with shared bathroom so I could nap after a night bus and sort all my things out for my trip!

    Very good stay. I had a small private room which was a good value for the money. The staff was great, very accommodating. The only small negative was that the music was played pretty late into the night when I had early tours the next day, but it wasn't over the top. Overall very pleased.

    Very Good

    Overall, this is a great hostel. The kitchen is spacious with two fridges and cupboards for storing food. The common areas are funky and a great place to hang out and meet other travellers. It's close to a metro station. The double room was comfortable, especially with the A/C though it's a strange configuration – the sink is in the bedroom, not in the bathroom. The double room faces the outdoor common area so it can be noisy until very late on some nights. Not the cleanest room on check-in.

    The hostel is well situated. On the second floor, where we stayed, there are two rooms with at least 14 people in total and only one toilet for all of us and without privacy. They sell tours to San Blas but they charge a lot of comission, be careful with that and try to get to the agency directly. The rest was good.

    Nice looking common area but quite improvised. The kitchen is only minimaly equipped and lacks organization. We booked the private room and changed rooms halfway through. The room in the main building is tiny and lacks any kind of space to put luggage plus the sheets look and feel very old. The second private room across the pool is better equipped and came with clean sheets.
