“Very nice hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2010

Nice place to stay! Very well located in Miraflores, you can wander around safely. This hostel has actually hotel standard and also seems like a familly house, good one. Very nice rooms, lovely garden with a pool that we enjoyed because luckily that day was hot . The staff is very friendly too. Pity that you have to pay for the breakfast, but not expensive.... Otherwise, we really liked it.

This is by far the worst Hostel we've been in. We tought that we could trust in the name "Hostelling International" but it was a pure disappointment.

The Hostal is totally overpriced!
We booked a night in advance at the HI in Cordoba. Unfortunately the lady there made a mistake (ALWAYS DOUBLECHECK YOUR RESERVATION OR BOOK IT BY YOURSELF!!!) so we had to cancel the reservation and change the room. The Hostal was nearly empty, but they didn't refund our 10% deposit. We were really angry as it wasn't even our mistake.

But it come's even better:
If you want to use the PC's - you have to pay
Using the oven - pay
Use the locker room - pay
Get towels - pay
Breakfast not included!
Most hostels offer these services for free!

- The toilets & showers in the Shared rooms can't be locked, there's no hot water, the lobby is really smelly (dogs...)

- THERE IS NO LAUNDRY SERVICE IN THE HOSTEL AS INDICATED ON THE HI WEBSITE!!! (not even for cash)

Better look out for another hostel...

This was one of the most overpriced, disappointing hostels I have stayed in. Our room smelled of damp (and so did all our clothes by the time we left the following morning). Our beds were very damp and because of this we did not have a very good nights sleep. There were also 2 dogs living in the hostel and as a result the otherwise impressive reception area smelled like wet dogs (not very pleasant). There are much nicer places to stay in this area. The following night we stayed at "one hostel" in Barranco and I could not recommend it highly enough - lovely rooms and the most helpful of staff.
