I am a Peace Corps volunteer here in the DR and this is the hotel that Peace Corps uses to put us up when we're in the capital. Most of us stay here on our own too. They have regular rooms (1 or 2 queen sized beds) and bunk bed style rooms for groups of backpackers or travelers. Hotel is clean and quiet, staff is friendly (owned by a dominican couple) and it is centrally located (in a safe area). 1 block from Maximo Gomez, 1 block from the malecon and a 15 minute walk to the conde. Close to the metro too!
Breakfast is included. They also have full kitchens on each floor and a washing machine for guests to use. Fast wifi on every floor and a killer view from their rooftop deck.
This hotel is NOT to be confused with the Hostal Bella Epoca. That place is terrible. Don't stay there.
