Pablo, the owner, is a gem. He provides a clean, comfortable hostel with full amenities while being an amazing host, offering advice and ideas to anyone who comes in. I've even seen him call other hostels for people when it's been booked.
Also Pablo has no qualms with offering advice on how to do trips on your own without a guide service which is a huge plus for budget travelers.
The location is great, just 300m from the civic center area and close to all the bus lines. Also close to club andino for those with questions about trekking.
It's very clean and the kitchen/common room have great space for multiple people to hang out at once.
The asado he offers twice a week is massive. We had chorizo, black sausage, a huge ribeye and another type of sausage with rice, salad, grilled onions, and wine.
If I ever came back, I'd be sure to stay here again.
