This is the best hostel I have stayed at. The atmosphere here really felt like a home away from home. Breakfast and dinner included every night here and they will merge all of the tables together so that no one is eating by themselves. Also the staff are so helpful and friendly and they all speak English. Veronika in particular...

I had such a nice stay at this Hostel. I felt like at home, owners are very welcoming and offer to travels free dinner every night thanks to what I had the chance to meet and talk to a lot of people. Breakfast was very good and different every morning. I stayed in the 8 dormitories with private bathroom, it...

We stayed at Hostel Orquideas three times, all outstanding! Great location by the ADO station, wonderful friendly and helpful staff and best of all amazing breakfasts and occasionally dinners that are complimentary! We were in the Deluxe Studio Apartment on our final night and couldn't recommend it more highly! It is offsite so not for those who want hostel vibes,...

I felt that this hostel was very expensive for what it was. The rooms are fine, but the matress cover is a loud crunchy plastic and you need to make and strip your own bed. They do offer free breakfast and dinner in the price albeit just a yoghurt and fruit and over brewed coffee. They made quite a nice...

The staff is pretty good. They even will make efforts to improve your stay. Me and my sister cannot eat eggs (I once got salmonella poisoning from eggs) and they prepared food that she and I could eat. Really sweet. The people the come to the hostel are pretty fun and nice. So it more or less seems to draw...

I can see why people like it here, it's sociable, they offer a free breakfast and dinner and it's in a good location.. but.. My boyfriend and I just didn't like it here that much. We booked a private room which wasn't really private as it had a gap in the top of the wall meaning we could hear everything...

My husband and I stayed in a private room with A/C and private bathroom for $40/night. The room/bathroom were clean and comfortable. The property had a great atmosphere with plenty of room to hang out in the gated courtyard at tables or in hammocks. Dinner was provided and eaten family-style with all of the other guests. It was fun getting...
