Stayed here for two days and it was the perfect location. Close to the airport and bus station. Really safe. Right beside the water, walking distance to las penas and beautiful buildings and churches. Complimentary breakfast was delicious. Serving eggs to order and fresh juice. Have vegetarian lunch and dinner options. Staff was friendly. Only downside was it was a... More

We took the 'white room' which was really big and beautiful! Huge shower and great bed. The hostel itself is beautiful and has really atmosphere. Location is excellent-right in front of the boardwalk and in a good safe area. Very much recommended!

Air conditioning, quiet and comfortable rooms, squeaky clean, cheap food and friendly service - what more could you want? Located right on the Malecon this hostel is just perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Loved Manso! We only stayed for one night, but they had all the amenities that we needed. We had an early flight to catch, and they were overly compensating and packed us a breakfast to take with us. It was a simple cheese sandwich, apple and juice, but the fact that they went out of their way to pack it... More

This hostel made a good impression on us from the moment we arrived. The man working at the desk picked up both of our 55 lb suitcases and carried them upstairs for my friend and I. Although we arrived at 5 a.m. and we were too early for check-in (which is around 2 p.m.) they got us a room as... More

I booked Manso with Expedia - rather inexpensively - and just one day before check-in, I read the fine print and realized that what I thought was a great promotional rate would entitle us, two adults, to an "economy room with single bed and shared bathroom"... We were fully prepared to see how bad it was and pay for an... More

The cafeteria was closed, but there was writen that it is open until 22pm. Not so cool. The room was good and i like the hostel. Nice places to hang on. Good breakfast. Prices are ok, but some of the rooms are expensive. You have to ask for the different room prices.. All in all i can really recommend this... More

This hotel is great, with friendly staff and good food. We had to check out early and they made us breakfast bags to go. We have never had that happen before. Very happy and upbeat staff that help a lot. The room was beautiful, clean, spacious, and perfect. I definitely recommend this place to stay.

The hotel is in a great location but noise was definitely a problem. We stayed in the Amber room which had one double bed and one twin bed with a huge bathroom. Our friends stayed across the hall in the white room. We liked the decor and uniqueness of the interior designs. Staff was very friendly as well. These two... More

Located right on the malecon, this hostel is in the best location. The hostel is beautiful. The rooms and common areas are kept clean. The rooms have air conditioning. The hostel has great common areas and a good cheap restaurant on site. The staff are friendly and helpful. Would recommend anyone to stay here.
