Pros: Friendly staff, great beds, clean rooms and bathrooms and great location. Cons; Music blaring all hours And it ALL travels into the rooms. Pretty annoying really considering the other travellers weren't really there for a Party but just looking for a chilled spot. Only criticism but was annoying 2 nights in a row when getting up for early tours.

Carlos & Hazel are such wonderful people! So warm and welcoming from the moment I arrived. Hazel helped me with tours, transfers and places to checkout during my stay! The beds are comfortable and rooms are cleaned daily. The showers have hot water!!! The restaurant also has good food - the pancakes for breakfast went down a treat & the... More

Great clean hostel with lovely deck. Owner speaks great English and are very friendly. Food is good but don't book a massage. Very expensive and not worth it. Dorms were comfortable and the single rooms are good too. Showers hot and atmosphere good.

This is a pretty and clean place to stay with fairly large rooms and a beautiful courtyard and rooftop terrace. Our issue was that it seemed the owner wants this place to be the fun, party, hangout for young backpackers (good drink specials, loud music ALL DAY that is easily heard from inside the rooms) but the price and quality...

I stayed in this hostal with my partner and 4 other friends. It's in a great location and we were well accommodated for. We stayed in a private room which consisted of a double bed, 3 bunk beds and a private bathroom with shower. The room was extremely clean and spacious considering how many people were staying in it. I... More

We loved our stay here (in a private room). Room was clean and spacious, serviced daily. Lovely courtyard and rooftop areas to chill out in. Great location, close to everything. Owners were friendly, also very professional and caring towards guests, e.g. When we left we had to get up early at 5.30am for a shuttle. We found Carlos the owner... More

This is a fabulous, clean, welcoming and easy going hostel. Carlos and Hazel are such a pleasure and will help you with anything you need. The inner patio and terrace above with volcano views are wonderful. I felt very cared for and that I was in a place that was well taken care of. I appreciated it not being party-central,... More

An ok hotel with a nice patio in the middle where you can order from the restaurant or just relax in the hammocks. The standard of the room were ok, though I didn't like the joke about not shower for more than five minutes or else you will get a electrical shock. The first room we got didn't have a... More

The rooms were clean. Crisp clean sheets and a warm bed were nice. The service was exceptional. They held a room for me and even placed a call for me when I needed help, even though they typically don't. Friendly service, affordable prices, and a feeling of well-being are all part of the package here.
