I am an older American, 63, who has enjoyed lots of time in South America over the past thirty years. I first came to Hostel Marsella in 1998 when I was studying Spanish for two months, snowboarding on Cotopaxi, and traveling with friends to Colombia. Last year I spent several weeks at Marsella and again this year, both times refreshing... More

The room was okay, as expected for the price. What made me leave was the noise. Most rooms have windows into the lobby and the owners/workers aren't very conscious of the noise they make at early hours - music, babies, dogs... I was awakened several times during my stay. I would have enjoyed a more friendly staff, also. You can... More

Hostal Marsella was perfect for me because it offered me exactly what I needed: a very nice and clean place where I could get a private room for little money in a very good location. The rooms are really nice, most of them seem like they have been renovated lately, the bathrooms as well as other areas were always clean,... More

We arrived at 5am where we agreed a $10 fee for 5hrs (check-out 10am). In the morning at 10am he grouped up on my girlfriend and I and forced us to pay $18, he denied agreeing to $10.

I got a good value private room here which also had a bathroom for $15. The room itself was on the very top floor facing the courtyard.
