I paid $12.50 USD for a bed in a 4 person dorm, which was double what I paid for every single other hostel I stayed in during my time in Ecuador and Peru. I opted to stay here my last night and splurge (thinking it would be great for double the price I had been paying for nice places). The main problems were that there is only ONE BATHROOM per floor (of two floors......). So hope you don't get sick or really have to pee EVER while you're here, because there is a CONSTANT and long bathroom line. It seems absurd to have the number of beds they have per floor for only one bathroom. Additionally, the WiFi never worked for me, which was another reason I booked this hostel. It IS very clean, but lack of bathrooms and super crappy WiFi made me seriously wonder why anyone would pay double to stay here.... You also have to pay for breakfast, which I've never had to do at all the other half-price hostels (I heard it was better than average breakfast however, thought I never got to try it because it ends at 9:30am). In summary, it's nice looking and clean, but should cost $6 or less, like all the other similar hostels that actually had bathrooms and WiFi.
