It's a nice apartment that was converted into an accommodation for travellers. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves (in October) most of the time...except for the last day when there was quite a queue for the shower (there's only one) and everyone was getting ready to go out. Love the location - bustling and not too far... More

The staff was very friendly. Upon arrival Jandro sat down with us and told us all about the city and the nice places, how to get there etc. The hostel is very conveniently located, right in the city centre. A definite must if you are staying here, is having dinner at Sensi Gourmet Tapas (about 15 metres to your right... More

Great hostel at a great price! As three lads on tour (Lads lads lads!) we wanted somewhere near the night life and that is exactly what we got. Yes it is quite a challenge to find initially and the street can be noisy but that is the trade off for an excellent location. Rooms are comfortable and there is plenty... More

Now when i say hard to find, it is a guesthouse so there is no signage and the small street its located on is not accessible by vehicle. We got severely lost, DO NOT USE google maps to locate, the address/location they give is wrong! Be sure to contact them before you arrive as they will give you proper/more detailed... More

They have bedbugs infection. We won't even know about it if not because I am allergic to the bites because typically the bug bites only show up after a few days after the actual bites. It's the worst nightmare. The only good thing is that the owner return my money when I complained about the bugs on the first night.... More

This place is by far the best place I have stayed to this date. Janto the manager and his 2IC Guille were very helpful in providing a rough guide of the city. The rooms were very clean and well lit. This place was recommended to me by a friend and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to... More

Could not fault one part of our stay at Mapamundo, it has gone down as one of our best ever holidays! Jandro's detailed instructions (including map and metro advice) were spot on and once we got to grips with the layout of the city we found the place in no time! It is in a great location and even arriving... More

Thought the guy who met us here was really friendly and helpful. Problems with the place were that the walls of our room were really dirty and the shower dirty too. Can tell it hadn't been properly cleaned for a while. I'm certainly not a clean freak, but I actually had a go at cleaning it myself with just a... More

The hostel was quite disappointing... My partner and I went there during the day and it was a bit hard to find. It seemed a good area, right in the middle of the beautiful Gothic neighbourhood, but at night it got busy and extremely noisy. If you are a light sleeper, no ear plugs (they are provided) will do the... More
