Very comfortable and relaxing. Convenient to restaurants and transportation. Private room/bath with no complaints. Fine hot water and internet. Exceptional breakfast including fruit, cheese and sausage, eggs cooked to order and served in a courtyard. A congenial German host who spoke Spanish but little English. A focus on German speakers yet inviting for anyone.

It's not the typical "Lonely Planet" backpacker hostel, so if you want to party a lot or meet a lot of international travellers, it's... More
