After checking in, we discovered they were fumigating a dorm room (maybe for bed bugs as there were a lot of reviews about those). We went out and on returning we found two of the staff that... More

Otherwise a great hostal. Yummy breakfast and great location but I'm afraid this does not make up for being bitten! The hostal workers knew there were bed bugs and i told them again so hopefully they will do something about it but i doubt it.
