I went there on a budget. I love VLA and this was one of the cheapest places I could find. I went with a friend and I would go back the next time. The beds are good, the pillows are decent. The bathroom is a bit small and old fashioned but its OK. The staff is VERY good. Very helpful,... More

The double room with private bathroom is what you can expect from a hostel in this price range. The only thing is that there's a... More

We stayed at the hostel 2 nights. Because of the ashes of the volcano and because we stayed more than 1 night we got a good discount. The owners and their staff tried everything to get the dust out of the hostel, which is the biggest problem at the moment. There's a kitchen that can be used and breakfast with... More

We checked out very early... More
