“LMAO. What are you calling this place??”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Sometimes, God likes to play jokes on good people. This is one of his jokes. Piss poor excuse for a hostel and only uses that category of accommodation as a guise for what it is - a dirty building rented out as a "hostel" for those without respect to party until 5am (bring those silicon airplugs). Yes, that was the time that the loud party downstairs finished. I feel really sorry for the neighbors. If you don't have tatoos, piercings, a half shaved head, you will be approached by the owner and nicely lectured to about what you can expect during your stay. This lecture will include a several-time mention of how they're the cheapest "hostel" in MC and they have the highest rating. (He apparently forgets that the only place he's listed is on his FB page and agoda - no hostel sites at all.) Which is good because sane, respectable people wouldn't want to come here. He'll also let you know several times that walk-ins really aren't expected or wanted. Go figure. And don't forget to listen to the part where he'll inform you that drugs and drinking are allowed on premises (tho not in the dorm rooms). And there are no lockers or places to put your valuables (he'll also inform you that you're only the 3rd person in 8 months to ask for one and then use the rest of Latin America's hostels in which he supposedly stayed to reason why lockers aren't needed). Well, when I came back to leave (there is no check-out time) to pick up my 2 bags, someone (and I'm sure I know who it was) had gone thru my backpack. And having travelled around the world twice, I can tell you about the need for a place to lock valuables.

This place got 2 circles only because the 2 employees were friendly.

Room Tip: I seriously doubt there are any.
