Very Good
Sep 12, 2023
Great location in the historic city centre. Helpful staff and nice pod-style dorm beds with plenty of privacy. Good AC and a fan above each bed. However, the pool was closed when I stayed and there was some construction going on in the common area. I thought the breakfast and bar prices were a little expensive.

Really great hostel. Pool and AC really nice to beat the heat. A bit cheaper than Viajero and we still found it quite social, as they ran a fun bar crawl on the one night. Rooms were nice but the top bunks are really high off the ground and difficult to access. The lockers in the room were a bit too small meaning everyone's stuff was everywhere in the room. And AC seemed to struggle to reach beds closest to the AC making it a little hot. Despite this had a great time and would return.
