“Ugly Place and Racist Owner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

My experience was very bad, first i rent a room for 3 days. Then came new passengers from germany and the owner says that i must give them my room couse im Argentinian and she prefer to work with european people becouse argentinian are bad people. Very crazy. The house is a littel bit dark. Next to this exist Arco del Sol Hostel, there is much better an confortable.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2009

The staff is not knowledgeable about the area (no restaurant recommendations, did not know WIFI password, did not know how to get to attractions) They were apathetic, borderline rude. Front desk girl spent more time watching television in the communal area than at her station. Staff did not speak English. Not a good place to meet people. We were overcharged for our last day there. Nice kitchen and WIFI. There many options in the area don't settle for this one. Hostel Loro Verde next store gave us the same rate for a nicer room with the exact same amenities.
