We stayed here for 4 nights and had a great stay. We had a private room on the grund floor next to the garden. All the walls are pretty thin so it can be noisy. Allso because the atmosphere amongst each other is great, you'll probably end up sitting in the garden untill late. If you're not, than the noise... More

Stayed here over a Friday and Saturday and really enjoyed my stay! The overall look of the hostel is really nice and trendy. It has a pool table and ping pong table which is good during the day and evening. Breakfast consists of nice coffee and scramble eggs with bread, pretty good! The bathrooms are really nice with good showers... More

We booked a two night stay in a private room here online but when we arrived we were informed they only had availability for the first night. That type of thing can happen sometimes and the front desk clerk was very apologetic and offered to help us find a different hostel for the next night. He also spoke excellent english... More

This Buddhist run hostel is one of the best places I've stayed in South America. Apart from the location (a little out of the way), there really isn't anything negative to say. Staff were super helpful, spacious rooms and showers were roasting. They have delicious local beers on draught that you pour yourself and simply log in a notebook at... More

Run by volunteers and a handsome dueno, this hidden hostel enjoys a central location that's great for going out at night. The building is ran-down and has very little sound isolation. The inner yard gathers folks around its hammock and the fish pond, which is pretty fun as you get to meet lots of interesting people, but don't count on... More

Not in the tourist/hostel centre of town but not too far from there and much cheaper than those hostels Staff were very cool, helping you with anything. I broke my phone on the last day and they told me where to... More

Pretty great hostel. Very chill vibe (exactly what we wanted). Room was generally clean and bathroom was decent (but clean). Good location, close to supermarket, restaurants and metro. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The kitchen is pretty clean and well-equipped. Definitely recommended.

Although I just stayed for one night in this hostel. I can really recommend this place. The staff was really friendly and helpful, the hostel is located in a good area of the city, the beds really nice, and I had a good hot shower. The only thing I was missing was a good locker for storing my valuables. They... More

I arrived to find the kindest most handsome twins Duvan and Francisco Urrego Montoya who welcomed me as if I was family coming home. They went out of their way to help me with anything and everything even letting me play in the lovely garden. They speak beautiful English which helps especially when I was trying to book further travel.... More
