“Noisy noisy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2009

As hostals go the rooms are in pretty good order. Nice size, fairly clean. Brian the owner is a genuinely nice guy and is trying hard. Similarly Diana who handles reception is friendly and helpful.

What lets this place down is the bar. It gets noisy and you hear it from the rooms. Not helped by heaps of Americans who stay and whose main mission seems to be to pick up Colombian girls. You get woken up by the sounds of the taxi drivers picking the girls up in the morning.

Similarly you can hear the street noise from the rooms.

But if you can sleep through noise its a nice place and good draft beer.

I feel for Brian who has good intentions but he needs to sort the noise and clientele coming to pick up girls.

This place looks great on the internet, and the bedrooms look great in person as well. However, there is a bar in the hostal, and the party is completely unregulated by the owner and goes on all night. (I´m writing this at 2:30 in the morning, because I can´t sleep with all of the noise, even with earplugs and a pilow over my head.) If you like to party it up and go until dawn, then this is the place for you. However, if you want to get up before noon to see the sights, stay somewhere else.

Location can't be beat but the ammenities are lacking. Bedroom had no ousitde windows, AC, or even a fan. Bring your own towel and pillow if you like to bathe or sleep comfortably. The staff was OK but if you can afford and extra $30 a day stay at a hotel nearby.

New so it was more like a hotel than a hostel. They had good games for the XBOX 360 and a very nice bar with $1 beers. Excellent location.
