The hostel is a really good option for its price. Is just five blocks from the main plaza where you can also find all the facilities you need. The personal is helpful at any moment you need them and they don't charge you for anything extra. The Internet connection is good. And rooms are superb for the price.

The receptionists are quite friendly and helpful. The room was OK, there are 2 computers for free, good Wi-Fi connection, and a free and very simple breakfast. Located in a good place... More

Very poorly furnished room: 2 bunk beds and one chair. I had to go downstairs (1 level) to use the toilet and bathroom. The building was rather outdated and not super well maintained.
