“Not the friendliest staff around”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2011

This hostel is relatively cheap and clean but beware there is no kitchen, so you'll eat out all the time. If you stay over the weekend, it's a seriously noisy place, because there's a bar two doors down. Some staff is nice, but others are awful, especially if you interrupt them during their Facebook time.

Also if you plan to pay with your credit card, you must pay a 5% charge and this is not advertised on their website. Better bring more cash and pay in pesos rather than plastic.
