Upon reading prior negative reviews I feel compelled to write my experience. After 6 months of hostels in Central and South America I found this place, in particular its location and value for money, up there with the best. I will review by responding to past criticism:
-noise: I didn't notice any unwanted noise but if you choose to stay on the main square, on the corner of the Main Street with the only bus stop outside, what do you expect? A little noise
-towels and toilet paper: just ask and they will provide! It's the first time in a month I haven't had to hire the towel. A bonus for sure!
-breakfast: more than stale bread and jam is a plus in this part of the world. The added fresh juice and banana was a treat. As for the coffee.. I LOVE being able to determine the strength myself, but just having coffee was special, let alone percolated.
-hot water: the longest continual
hot shower I've had for a while
- left luggage whilst on isla del sol and no problem
In summary this place is a hidden treasure. To get a private room with private bathroom and a semi-lake view for less than $10/night, ill take that! Everything else was a bonus.
