Stayed here for one night due to mix up at other hostel. Room was ok. Could be more clean. The staff were wonderful. Very helpful in suggesting places to visit and go for local cuisine. Which offset the cleanliness issue.

I stayed three nights in a private room with a shared bathroom. It was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfy- the fan drowned out any noise so I slept well. I did find it odd that the window had no curtain but it was an interior room so it wasn't a privacy issue... More

Me and my partner had a private room in this hostel that could've fit 4 more people in! The hostel has a good, well equipt kitchen with free coffee in the morning. There was a nice living area and good film collection, and the owner was a good laugh with lots of information. Location is just outside the Centre -... More

This is a decent hostel. It has good facilities hot water, TV with cable and DVDs, kitchen, laundry, computer you can use and quick WiFi. Everything feels a little worn but staff are friendly. It does the job.

We stayed here for just 2 nights (and they held our bags for us one night while we went to San Cipriano) in a simple 8 bed dorm. The staff are super friendly. Kitchen was great. Free coffee. Hot water showers with good pressure. TV room with DVD collection. Laundry service.

Our double room was not clean behind, and under the bed. Quite simple room, with a fan. Our room was quite warm. They have also dorms. A place for backpackers. Our private bathroom has dust on its shelves. No safe box in the room, but a locker space was possible nearby the kitchen. The TV set was not well set,... More

I had a great time at this hostel. The owner (not named Larry) is Jean he really enjoys owning this hostel and it shows. Jean and the beautiful Carolina do a wonderful job running the place. They have comfortable beds and some rooms stay nice and dark so I was able to sleep in like I was a teenager again.... More

Stayed in a private room in the courtyard area. Only stayed one night. Room and bathrooms were clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good neighborhood. Close to San Antonio and a main thoroughfare with lots of restaurants and bars. Wifi only works in the main part of the house; it didn't reach the private room, kitchen and courtyard areas.... More

“There's not a lot of storage space inside the rooms, if you like to spread your stuff out, you might want to consider the single room. It's also small, but it's ALL YOURS, and it was very reasonable.”
