First of all, bedbugs. One girl in our room woke up with at least a dozen of the telltale straight line bites. We all crossed our fingers that she had gotten them elsewhere (because it was New Year's weekend and basically impossible to move to another hostel)... until I woke up with a bedbug crawling across my blanket. Gross. Because... More

Really social-able hostel with a large common area for travellers to hang out and relax after a long bus ride. We arrived early (7am) and was shown the communal area to sit and wait for check-in at 1pm. Breakfast was good with a large bread roll, scrambled eggs, butter/jam and tea and coffee. They also offered juice/smoothie but it was... More

Perfectly located in the Cerro Concepción right next to little cafes, stores and the famous graffiti-colored streets, this hostel offers good accommodation. Beds are comfortable, dorm spacious, all rooms are clean and wifi super fast and stable. Showers have hot water and good water-pressure. There's lockers for everyone. Breakfast is ok but small. Atmosphere is good due to the small... More

I've never been to a hostel where the person at the front (Carolina) was so accommodating. She took a good 10 minutes circling things on my map to see. The area itself is charming and they've got a nice breakfast in the morning (eggs, bread, fresh juice)

The hostel was good, staff were friendly and knowledgable about things to do in the area. Basic enjoyable breakfast, eggs, smoothies, bread, butter, jam etc.. Nice hot showers but it was only one for all the guests to share. The whole place could do with a bit of a refurbishment.

The hostel was just great... The location couldn't be better, right in the center of Cerro Concepcion, close to restaurants, bars and incredible panoramic views of the city... The staff was extremely helpful... Rafael, Iera and Eneco are there for answer any kind of question you have about the city and offer some tips about great places that only locals... More

We stayed for 2 nights in an 8 bed mixed dorm. Very social hostel with good breakfast and on one night they offered a BBQ dinner. Negatives were that there are only 2 bathrooms and only one had hot water when we were there in mid-July. General cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms could also be improved. Great location though.

Very pretty hostel, in a central position, and in a very pictoresque barrio. There are two dorms, one is a bit cheaper at ground floor, the other one is at first floor, big and with a pretty view. Breakfast is very good, with eggs and fruit juice. Very nice atmosphere, with a big kitchen and a cozy living room. Staff... More

Hostel itself was decent. Great location. Staff was beyond helpful at checkin. However, the lack of bathrooms was a bummer, as there was always a line. People would set alarms for the middle of the night so they could poop in peace. One bathroom resembled a swamp in that it was smelly, steaming, and always moist. The plus about this... More
