When we show up at 9PM and after a good 10 minutes waiting, the owners (a couple) came and say they are sorry but there is no room available for us, that booking.com showed the room available when it was not, possibly due to someone else cancellation. 1. They had our contact information... More

Right near the bus station and a great location in town. Staff are very relaxed and friendly, although don't speak a whole lot of English. Miming will get you by! Always very clean, towels and soap provided. Private rooms with ensuite only $8, dorms are $6. Great bang for your buck.

I really enjoyed this place. Its quiet, secure, clean, and the staff are nice. Good kitchen facilities too. 24 hour entrance. Fyi, they have a dog and cat but both are friendly. They have computers for public use. Hot water showers. Good value dorms and privates. Highly recommended!

Highlights of this place include the large, clean and well-equipped guest kitchen, free internet, and the budget priced rooms (with amazing showers). The staff are friendly and attentive, what more does one need?

Hostal Nomada is very close to the bus station, so there is no need to walk far upon arrival. Just a few blocks from the main squares as well. Hot water, good wifi, very clean, very well equipped kitchen, and (pretty) comfortable beds. Friendly staff, quiet, and a computer to use if you need it. At just $6 for the... More

This a lovely new hostel, I stayed 1 week. Very cheap dorm room for $6. Wifi was perfect, hot water all day. They clean the dorm and your bed sheets everyday. Fully equipped kitchen free to use. Absolutely nothing to complain about.

A private here is $7 pp per night and a dorm is $6. You can't go wrong really. The hostel is clean, the rooms are pretty good and the kitchen is very well equipped. It was a really close walk to the bus terminal and also maybe 2 blocks from a super market and the fruit and veg market. If... More
