The place looks interesting, it is inside a market with very diverse food areas. But the location of the hostel is very limited, the area of the beds complies with what is necessary, however there is no privacy if there is not a curtain in each bed to avoid the inconvenience of

Late in responding to your comments. As the owner, I thank you for the time and detail you took to let us know your opinions. I inform you that the theme of the WIFI we solved with three modems as well as a bandwidth of 50 Mbps, giving service to the rooms and terrace. The theme of the showers also improved and you can bet they are the best of any hostel, pressure and hot water to the maximum. The terrace has not yet been fully enabled, we have an outdoor room as well as acapulco style chairs and a rotisserie and heater, light, wifi and even a bluetooth speaker so you can listen to the music of your liking. We are still about to build a living area for the guests. The theme of the wc inside the hostel is rather an impediment of hydrosanitary infrastructure, we were not able to do it. The curtains will be put shortly as well as the improvement of the terrace. We offer in agreement with Afiori a very healthy breakfast and based on flowers which makes it delicious. In general, those have been the improvements. Best regards and we hope you come back soon.
