First thing first : If you are not quite sure what the difference between a guest house and a hotel might be, then this place is probably not for you. Chez Michel is an amazing place for whoever wishes to meet other travelers, but feels maybe a bit too old for a regular youth hostel. It is great for friends,... More

We arrived to Chez Michel and the owner himself greeted us and was the most rude person I have ever come across. His first question was if we had read all the rules of the hostel and when we said we hadn't received them from our travel agent he responded by saying; -"This is why i never allow English guests."...

We have been traveling for 5 weeks through LatAm and stayed in many places but this was by far the biggest dissapointment. We got the place recommended by a friendly French (!) couple. First of all when we arrived we had the impression that the French owner (Michel) was drunk. He asked us if we were familiair with the rules... More

Of course you can be a little bit lost in the middle of a french team, but the atmosphere is perfect with his capirinha period after 6pm. Thanks michel !!
