“I'll go back next year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

This was an awesome hotel to stay at, very clean.The staff was extremely friendly,very helpful.
To take a cab into town is $5.00 about a 5 minute drive, you can allso walk which takes about 25 minutes. Food was good always plenty of fresh fruit. the snack bar opened at 10 am. with to die for onion rings,chicken, pizza,nachos and lots of fruit.
We did some excursions,the rain forest the catamaren tour and the water falls which were very good.We got alexonthebeach.com he was awesome, spoke english very well,with him you can do private tours with your own group.

Gorgeous building in good condition overall, but we found the place to be rather disorganized and not the cleanest. Their private rooms (with private bath) are overpriced. We stayed in two different rooms over several days. In the first one, our nights were interrupted by smoke coming up from downstairs and light/noise from the room next door (via big windows between the rooms). In the second room, I woke up with multiple bed bug bites (I've had them before in my old apartment - I react to the bites like nothing else!) They're aware of the problem and hopefully they are dealing with it.

This hostel has all you need. Desk is manned 24hours a day so showing up at 2am after a delayed flight was no problem. Breakfast is sufficient, internet is good, security is excellent . Atmosphere is nice, building is lovely, quiet at night.

Didn't end up staying here as they never made our reservation. They ended up sending us to a different Hostel (Happy House) which ended up being fantastic. The building had a weird vibe and was a bit dark and dinghy, but we never got to see the rooms. The guys at front desk said we'd be really happy with him because he'd found us somewhere else to stay (as opposed to apologising) but it turned out he was right - we were much happier at Happy House. Thank you for sending us there.

Landay Barcello. Really cool building, big rooms with high ceilings, and comfortable beds. This place has real character, it looks more like a boutique hotel than a hostel. Shower was a bit rubbish. Location in the centre is great for the bus to the airport.

Overall I enjoyed my stay there.
The hostel is housed in a classical building including a tiny inner courtyard. The whole place is very clean, bathrooms and facilites (kitchen, living room, TV room) are modern and in good condition. Staff were great at any time, the bed was really comfortable, big with a new matress. Most nights it was dead quiet.

I only rate it average, though, because:
One night the owner had a barbecue in the courtyard, making sleep almost impossible.
During four days, Wi-Fi never worked.
Hot water worked only on the first day!

Room Tip: When it's full, try to get a room not facing the courtyard as people there might be chatting lon...

Dear Fahrgabunt,

thanks for your opinion, we really appreciate your coment and we would like to make sure you know what happened those days.
We had some electric issues, that caused our Wi Fi failure and took down the water heater for 1 and a half day.

Cheers.
Guys at Landaybarcelo.
