I have a hard time believing anyone could recommend this place. The female working the desk was friendly, but to a point. The hostel is way too far from the bus station to be used just for a night. Across the street from the station you can find at least 2. It's out of the way really for anything else too. When I checked in, I was give the price of $150pesos for a female dorm bed, but the price on hostels.com had been 132. After trying to give me the "lo que pasa" line (heard it a million times honey), she looked it up online, saw I was right and gave it to me for that. A loose key was given to me (how easy to lose) and I was shown around. In the dorm, she pointed to 2 beds which were available (not even knowing that a third bed had checked out) and asked which I wanted. After she walked away, I saw the dried blood stains and other stains on the sheet and changed to a top bunk which was clean. How anyone can justify keeping bed sheets like those is beyond me. The other big problem with the room was the lighting. Or lack there of. Isn't it understood that light comes with the price? It's a female dorm, but guys like to come in and sit on the beds. We all know what that means. 5 beds, but only one locker. The shower was decent. Definitely not worth the price.
