Hostels aren’t luxurious but this place needed some better cleaning and care. The doors slam really loudly and the showers need more hooks so your clothes don’t get wet. It felt pretty grimy. The location is amazing and it feels safe but that’s about all it has going for it. We probably wouldn’t stay here again, even if it meant paying more to stay somewhere else cleaner and nicer.

Muy buena la atención, tuve un inconveniente y llegué varias horas después de las 12 AM y me atendieron sin problema. Puedes hacer uso de las instalaciones deportivas y de las clases que están increíbles. También me ahorré con la ubicación ya que podia llegar caminando rápidamente, el vecindario seguro y amable. Por el clima no requerí el aire acondicionado.

The room was very smelly. It was very hard to sleep that night. Restrooms are not that clean as well.
