Lovely place. Super friendly staff. Well equipped kitchen. Great music and vibes. Different homemade breakfast everyday. Nice outdoor area that facilitates people talking to each other. Private rooms are simple but nice, lots of space, clean and great water pressure.

Comfortable rooms...private and dorm style. The owner , Jose, makes everyone feel like this is their home with a home cooked breakfast offered each morning and theme nights like karaoke...

Perfect hostel if you want a bit more quiet stay combined with organised evenings to meet new people in the hostel. Very helpful staff, great location in town and good breakfast! Make sure you book a couple of days ahead!
