After seeing the web site of Casa San Gallito I booked a private room for 3 nights. When we arrived in the hotel, we paid the first night before seeing the room... mistake. The room has nothing to do with what we had seen in the web site pictures: it was ugly, dirty (the shower curtain had hole and mushrooms...)... More

There are bed bugs in the main dormitory. I was bitten within 15 minutes and found a dead bed bug in the bed. Immediately gathered my stuff and booked another hostel. The staff initially refused to refund me my money but I persisted and after a call to the owner, they finally apologized and gave me a refund. This is... More

In general San Gallito was clean, safe, and had hot water. The staff seemed stand off-ish, but were willing to accommodate. The breakfast consisted of cheap sugary cereal, milk and white bread. We paid for a private room, but the lock was falling off the door and we ended up switching rooms. The other room had blood stains on the... More

The hostel had a nice vibe and is very cozy. When I was there there where not a lot of people staying so it was a little quite. The hostel has a nice courtyard. The staff was very helpfull and friendly.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights before moving in with our host family for a study abroad session. We hardly spoke any spanish at the time and we showed up in the middle of the night, but the people there were very friendly! One or two speak serviceable English. If I could describe the feeling of being... More

In general a clean hostel. Staff seemed rather stand off-ish. Despite the fact that there was no alcohol on sale other guest stayed up partying till around 3 am. This is usually not an issue and even expected on a Saturday night in a hostel. But the common area is right outside the bedrooms with no buffer for the noise.... More

Clean, comfortable room. Free wifi covered most area of the house. The water heating is not very efficient, as it takes a while to warm up, but not a big issue. Very nice and welcoming staff.

We went to about 10 cities and stayed in many hostels and this one was by far the best in all areas. Safety, location, clean, comfortable and the owner/managers made us feel as if we were in a home!

One of the best of the 20 hostels during my trip. Very spacious rooms, great common areas, excellent location, always clean, great kitchen, good breaky, friendly staff, fast wi-fi. Just 3-4 blocks from the center, with many inexpensive restaurants for those on a budget.
