Really fun hostel”

There's a reason this place is always sold out. Lots of people to meet, fantastic common areas. Helpful and enthusiastic staff. Very clean. Parties every night (but they're over by 12). Free dinner and breakfast. Only complaint I have is the dorm beds don't all have lights or charging sockets. The bathroom toilets are tiny. But it's not a big deal.

If you don't mind the cold and noise”

very good value hotel that provides dinner and breakfast and its really easy to meet other travellers here. cons: room gets really cold and there is no heater. noise from bar and street can be disturbing. and really unhappy that they didn't tell me that they will charge 50 pesos if i lose my wristband. most hostels u can just throw it away

Good hostel, great food options”

Really nice hostel, big chill out area both inside and out. Different food options each night and really good value. The burritos were the best. Little noisy on weekends from some bars across the road, with singing and bands playing until 5am

BUEN HOSTAL ”

Deberían solo ampliar los horarios de los alimentos ya que tomas tours y no puedes hacer uso de ellos, el desayuno es de 8-10 debería iniciar 7o 7:30 y la cena finalizar a las 9:30 , no pude hacer uso de estos servicios incluidos por que tomaba tours y no coinciden los tiempos. además le gente en el comedor es Poco amable y siempre tiene mala cara. pero en General el lugar esta Excelente.
