Great owners. Friendly, easy going, and more than willing to assist you in your travels. From recommendations about local sites (Cocuicha, Fuya-Fuya, good coffee, etc) and knowledge of the bus system, to laundry and secure bag storage, they have you covered.
If I'm putting on my picky hat I would say there is room for small but meaningful improvements. I thought the bed was slightly uncomfortable - the mattress was thin and I could feel the bed frame (I think it would be better for someone who sleeps on their back). The other improvement I would have liked is a hotter shower, it was warm but not as hot as I like.
The location is right across the street from Plaza de Ponchos and is easy walking distance to the other plazas, food market, and the bus station. As you should expect with such a location there is street noise.
Roof top balcony offers views of the city. I didn't use the kitchen but I believe they have one. Overall, the place is clean, accommodating, with friendly and helpful owners.
