We stayed there for 2 nights. It offers clean rooms, compfy beds, hot showers and a great view from the roof top terrace. Wifi works only at the reception area, but they have a desktop computer with fast internet which was a great help. Furthermore I want to thank Jesus who made as a fresh and tasty breakfast every morning.... More

We had the best breakfast on the roof top which Jesus prepared wonderfully and we were able to go out the night before with some people from the hostel which was so much fun as well! The hostel will remain... More

Friendly and colourful hostel, right in the middle of the city center so close to all main attractions. We loved the view over the city and its vulcans, especially in the morning. The staff is very friendly, and gives you a lot of information: where to catch the bus, how to find an atm, etc. Lizbeth gave us a very... More

The best thing about this hostel are its staff. They are all really helpful and friendly. I do remember one of the staff, Carolina, inviting me along to an international night at a nearby bar/club which was awesome. All the staff (inc. Carolina) recommended great places to eat....chula a la ca marines was delicious!

Dear James, the receptionists at bothy hostel always take into much consideration a guest's need! if something like this really happened, I doubt noone did anything to solve the problem. the storage room is a small room next to reception. To access storage room, you have to enter reception. We have 24H attendance, receptionist leaves the desk only to bring... More
