I stayed here a year ago and was pleased. I came through San Pedro Sula later in the evening this year and stayed again. It's a very nice Hostel and i felt very safe, in what is said to be a not safe city. The woman again was very helpful and pleasant and helped me with my bus ticket to... More

I arrived late at night which isn't a good thing in this city. The taxi driver knew exactly where the place was so that went well. A nice hostel with a nice host, I think her name was lorett? Safe location and a comfortable bed. You can purchase TICA bus tickets at the hostel for a small fee and they... More

Unfortunately this hostel was a huge disappointment. We stayed here because lonely planet recommended it in their guidebook and it was quite convenient with location to the bus terminal. The room was terrible. The bed looked like it was 20 years old and the overall appearance of the room was quite bleak and poor. The staff, a young man and... More

Pretty good hostel with nice dorms and good people. The kitchen was a mess but besides that, no problems. This hostel is the only place in town where you can get bus tickets from TICA bus or other companies after the regular work time, making it somehow special to backpackers only looking for a place to stay for the night....

We arrived late in the night after a very long trip from Costa Rica, with a stressfull interactions in the bus station, but arriving here was like a little piece of paradise. The owner was very kind to us, they gave us a good fresh beer and a very good bed.

Stayed here for 1 night. A guy from the hostel came an picked me up in the airport as promised, and they drove me to the bus terminal the next morning. But their rates are way to high. Paid 20 $ for the airport pick up, 10 $ for the drive to the bus terminal and 15 $ for a... More

The reason this hostel gets many mixed references is that there's not much options in San Pedro Sula, Honduras is clearly a country with severe difficulties, so they take full advantage of it, overpricing everything by western standards, I quite understand them, anyways I stayed on the dorm, there's a baleada restaurant close by with nice food and decent prices,...

I'm not sure what all the bad review are about. I ended up here because the TICA bus office was closed on a Sunday and the taxi driver recommended this place to buy my ticket. I ended up buying my bus ticket and decided to go ahead and stay here in place of the other hostel where I made my... More

Stayed there with my girlfriend and we got a dorm room to ourselves-- nice touch. But it was SUPER hot, ill-ventilated, and smelled like the bathroom next to it. The staff didn't really know anything about SPS while we were there and just recommended that we stay in at night. Fair enough, but at least give us something to do... More
