Negatives: Can't imagine why this room is #1 in Tripadvisor. Maybe I was given the worst room in the hotel. Room was substandard: mold on the walls in certain place and pealing paint in others. Bug splatters on wall. Went to sleep in one bed and found a long hair and lint on the pillow. Switched to the other bed....

Nice place in the beautiful town of colonial. Room was clean, big and comfortable with a little balcony too. There was some black mould on the walls and round the shower which was the only thing to let it down, probably due to the humidity. Breakfast was good and staff were very pleasent. Well located and good value. Overall very...

Really good location, between the town and ferry terminal. Room was spacious, AC is OK and we had a nice balcony facing the water. The receptionist who checked us in spoke very little English. Luckily theres a young man there with perfect English who was able to answer all of our questions! We had a very nice stay

My wife and I stayed here with our two young daughters (both under 5). The posada is an easy walk from the ferry terminal and is very close to the historic district, which is great because it makes it easy to visit the ruins in the evening. It's not too far to the main street with restaurants etc also -...

The place is simple, but has some charm. Very close from the seaport, you can walk down the street. The breakfat is ok, but no more than that. They do have a nice and gently service, specially the brazilian host who works at the front desk and gave us some very good advices.

“An inner room, away from front side, would be quieter. Otherwise, it was a very nice, pleasant, clean hostel. Parking was free on street.”
