Hostel located right in city centre and close to everything. Thomas the guy working there friendly and very helpful. Kitchen and bathrooms could be a bit cleaner. Overall we had a pleasant stay there. Lovely city to visit and it is in a safe area.

To run a hostel not only means watching TV and collecting money, it means also maintenance and CLEANing! The owner is a nice chap and helpful when it comes to draw a walking tour on a map, location is good also, but toilet and room is soo dirty, I haven't seen such a mess on my travels to Bolivia, Peru......

Everything was great! The hiatal is right on the border between cerro Alegre and cerro concepcion, steps away from grocery stores, restaurants, and cafes. The house is really cute and welcoming, and the owners couldn't be friendlier or more helpful! The space is limited due to it's small size, but it adds to the homey environment, and there are still... More

Locatoin is good. Cable TV in the double room. But the double room was TINY! There was not enough room to open our 2 backpacks. Because it was so small. Then just with the bags closed there is not enough room for 2 people to stand in the room. The bedspread was dirty and old. Hot water on day 1... More

We were welcomed by Gerrardo and Christian very friendly. They showed us on a map where (not) to go and what to see. The hostal itself was extremely clean and the kitchen is well equiped. The central location on the beautiful Cerro Alegre was great. We could visit the city by foot. The area has a lot of nice Cafés... More

Not only was this super clean and conveniently located, but the owners went out of their way multiple times to be not just hosts, but friends. They even gave me a bunch of fresh herbs from their ample garden to use the night I decided to cook in their well stocked kitchen. The rooms are so clean, bathrooms as well,... More

It's such a fantastic location (we found our hostel at the centre of the hype when we did our walking tour). Really friendly and... More
