This space has so much potential (good outdoor space, pool) but the management is rude and incompetent. There was never toilet paper in the dirty bathrooms, I had to ask 5 times to get sheets put on my bed, and the night manager had no idea how to fix the AC because the remote was lost.

Simply horrendous. Rude staff, dirty bathrooms, never ending noise and a consistent stink of 'special cigarettes'. We were led down a back corridor when we arrived, into the dungeon that was our room. There wasn't room to swing a mouse, it smelled, the sheets we were given were horrible and the beds squeaky and uncomfortable. And sleep wasn't an option... More

Definitely overrated. Check-in receptionist didn't speak English therefor felt not very nice. Didn't tell me that they charge more for paying with credit card (10%) - just charged the card somehow using its cvv code (?!) dorm upstairs very very very poor. Online rates available just online, when you get there price is one third higher. Party place though if... More

The rooms are large, but shabby. Most of the lockers in our room were falling apart. The bathrooms were extremely dirty when we arrived, and were only cleaned quite late in the day. The staff seemed mostly occupied with chilling out and did not seem to care much about their guests. They only reluctantly answered our questions and helped out... More

Amazing! The best hostel offer in town. Perfect location, nice rooms and ań incredible swimming pool. Mika, the cool hostess, can help you in Asunción. There are rooms for all kind of travellers. An excelent place to start you trip´in Paraguay.

I stayed in a 4 bed dorm for three days in the basement. The room and bath dowstairs were basic but clean. The pool was closed because it was winter. The guy in the front desk provided me with blankets and the heating was working very good in my dorm. Internet was fast and breakfast was ok. I really enjoy... More

A hostel full of private, rooms, a swimming pool and a laid back vibe. Quality place and one of the best hostels I have stayed in across the world. The Owner (from Uruguay) was lovely and gave us plenty of recommendations for the remainder of our trip.

Really liked this hostel as it has pretty much all the amenities you could ask for in a place. It's location is 2 blocks from the main square and as Asuncion centre is pretty small, it is easy walking distance to most places. You can grab a bus to the suburbs just a block down. The beds are comfortable with... More

This is a really nice, relaxing place to stay in Asuncion. They have a good kitchen and excellent wifi and hot showers. Everything a traveller needs. The staff are very friendly and coped well with my non existing Spanish. Thanks for a please to stay.

When we arrived the receptionist was very rude to us, we can speak a little Spanish but she spoke so fast that we couldn't understand a word she was saying and she knew we couldn't! We then asked for a towel, we paid for one, she took the money (10 py) and then served someone else, we waited patiently. When... More
