We booked the private room ensuite and it was the most luxurious room you could expect from a hostel! It was super clean and only a 15min walk from the local bus stop from where you can take super cheap busses to all the surrounding places. Especially Maria Jose was super helpful in communicating everything in perfect English. Would definitely stay again:)

Great hostel! Super clean and great value for money. They have filtered water which is a really nice touch and lockers to securely store your valuables if you're leaving your luggage there while going on the lost city trek. It was the perfect place to spend the night before/after the trek. It is a little bit away from the main part of town, but there are still restaurants around. Vibe was chill and lowkey. Would highly recommend this hostel if that is what you are looking for!
