Rooms are comfortable and affordable ($5-7 per day), showers are hot, and kitchen is functional. The owner is very attentive and keep the place nice and clean. There are only six rooms... More

I studied at the school for 6 months, and my Spanish improved ÀLOT. During this time I changed my teachers a few times, just to keep things fresh, and all of them were great. As far as getting value for money, and a very professional, high standard of teaching, this school is the best I found in.Xela. It is a... More

We were only here for one night, but the compassion and friendliness of our hostess was so amazing we would easily stay there again if back in the area. The hostess took us in when we had nowhere else to go, was so helpful in getting us fed (we came in late at night) and oriented in the city. She... More

My partner and I spent 6 weeks studying here around August this year. We had a lovely double room upstairs that had it's own toilet. Definitely the best room in the place. The kitchen was good most of the time. Ilsy was an amazing host and always did her best to keep the place clean. This is sometimes hard when... More

Even without being scholars at their school we could stay in a dark but spacious room. It had shelves, hooks and a desk, yeah! The kitchen is great and clean, the bathrooms are okay but you have to walk through a classroom (with students!). The price was fair (among the cheapest in town) but the mattress was horrible and bad... More

I originality came here for two weeks to study Spanish on a recommendation from a friend. I ended up staying almost six weeks. That should say enough... but I'll elucidate: The place is great! It's only two blocks from Parque Central and everything you could want or need is within 5 blocks. There's a kitchen, classes are right outside your... More

I was looking for a cheap place and don't need luxury so I thought this would fit the bill. However, I would wake up each morning with more and more bug bites (not sure if it is fleas or bedbugs but they itch and hurt). The kitchen is really dirty, especially the fridge which made the whole kitchen smell. The... More

A great place to stay, especially for more extended visits. Very central location, useful kitchen, friendly staff. Not fancy, but everything else makes up for it.
