We stayed here in 2 different private rooms and liked one more than the other. Rooms in the courtyard can get quite cold at night. Although the blankets provided kept us warm while asleep, anything else in the room like packing or changing was at times unpleasant because of the cold.
A lot of good stuff to say about this place though: The staff were very nice and helpful; wi-fi quite reliable; snacks and beverages available for purchase. There are a few newly renovated, really nice bathrooms; food (breakfast & dinner) is good although breakfast is only served starting at 9am. I had to make a few changes to my reservation and each time I received a reply to my e-mail within 3 hours or so.
I saw renovations of a small part of the hostel but never before 8-9 am. The work wasn't particularly loud while I was there, either. There is a resident dog (Mono) and cat (Tinto), both of whom are very friendly and well-behaved. They're very calm and don't go beyond the common areas, so you shouldn't be discouraged if you're not crazy about pets. Importantly, the owners and staff take great care of their animals. Both are former strays who are now fixed and receive good veterinary care; the owners seem to be genuinely kind people.
