Decent hostel, okay kitchen, could do with a few more bathrooms to be honest. The place is also extremely smokey (and I am a smoker!) due to people smoking outside the rooms in covered areas. Location is great. Would I stay here again? Yeah probably, is it on the top of my 'best places i have stayed in south and... More

If you like smoking inside & the room being next to the common area which is very noisy you'll love this place. If you also love not being able to shut the window due to the heat which is the only method of blocking above mentioned, You'll really love this place. Don't stay here, horrible

We have arrived quite late and we were welcomed by a really nice receptionist. We have chosen a dormitory over the private room. It was clean with the fan running. One double bed was under construction. I woke up in night thinking it must have been mosquitoes. The guy at the reception gave me OFF gel, he was really nice... More

Pros: location is close to Poblado Metro station, good restaurants, and bars. Staff is friendly. CONS: Upon arrival, there was no one to let us in (around 9:30am). We had to wake someone up who seemed unsure as to why we were at the door with bags... very odd. We even had a reservation. Upon arrival the bathrooms had clearly... More

I can't speak for the dorms here but we hired a private room and it was well one of the most basic rooms I've had in South America and I've been to every country. For the price you would expect a little more! Issues: - Beds were old and sheets rangy - one plug point in the room and it... More
