I booked for Magdalena’s and ended up staying at the Pink Palace which was slightly confusing. I think Magdalena’s had been affected by flooding. All in all a very pleasant stay at the Pink Palace. Magdalena herself was very nice and extremely helpful

Madalena’s is a beautiful place to go for a nice break of the busy hustle and bustle downtown area. It is a little out of the way but the staff there are ABSOLUTELY amazing and have no problem getting you to where you need to be.

This review would be difficult. During my stay, I had the two extremes, so let me start with the possitive side. Stuff was amaizing. Really friendly and helpful, they were really doing whatever they can to create the right atmosphere. There was tihs older gentleman (Georgus, or George) who was absolutely amazing. On the flip side - the hostel was all about making quick cash. Cheapest beds, bathrooms with no lockers...the place holds so much potential, but the focus seem to be on quick cash.
