The place has a good location near the town square but that is about as good as it gets. The prices are fair but the place is dark and dingy and will suffice but certainly nothing to brag about. I stayed for a few nights until the not so friendly staff informed me that I could not renew my stay... More

The staff is nice, the place looks fine, other guests were quiet and respectful and the price is pretty good for those on a budget but our overall experience was disappointing. Paper thin walls so you could hear everything -- and I mean EVERYTHING -- from the next room (like sorting through luggage! turning pages in a book!) Although ads... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The location is only 2 blocks from the main square and there are a lot of good places to eat nearby. I had a single room which was cheap and clean. The internet didn't really work well in my room and the shower wasn't really warm, but those were the only downsides. The staff... More

Descent hostel if you are looking for a private room for a longer stay. The private rooms are nice, with windows and comfortable beds and the monthly rent isn't too much. Dorms are ok too. The hostel is quit big and has a good kitchen. Although the cooking gear can use some renewal. The lady working at the hostel is... More

I spent Samana Santa here as there was nothing else to do, no buses, and no museums open. In saying that the staff here were great and constantly on the phone to see if any buses were moving. A short distance from the main plaza, so, very central. The rooms were comfortable with 3 communal shower and toilet. The place... More

Position of accomodation is not bad. close to Quetzaltrekkers, close to town square. Toilits clean. Kitchen available, not so special, but works. Private rooms, are very simple, nothing I can write about. I thing its only separated area with twin wooden desks.

I've stayed in Hostal Don Diego twice, for a total time of nearly two weeks. It's well-located, two blocks from central park and a decent grocery store. Free internet is a great plus (but the hostel's computer is charged) The kitchen needs better stock, some pans can spin 360 degrees on their handles, the remainder have no non-stick surface remaining....

I stayed for 1 night here in July and I thought it was very nice- the room was clean, the bed decent, the showers were good and the staff very friendly.

Paper thin walls. A few people who were there at the time had problems with bugs in their rooms. Kitchen was ok, but most people did not know how to clean frying pans. Only three bathrooms is not enough when it is crowded. Most rooms are either noisy being too close to main desk, front door or near kitchen/patio. Also... More

Staying in a private economy room which is very very clean and comfortable (I like hard pillows and matresses). The only annoying thing is that the bathroom and showers are quite a way aways from the upstairs room and the walls are very thin. So you hear EVERYTHING! The kitchen is great for long term stayers, i'm not really using... More
