Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Although I met some really nice people over here, i didn't like the place. The building is very old en could use some renovation. I stayed in an 8p dorm, which was really small. There were only 4 small lockers available, which were too small for a backpack. So, everybody's stuff is on the floor. My mattress was old and sagging so I could feel the planks of the bed through it. Kitchen is small but ok. Staff is nice.

Though the woman who checked me in was helpful I did not like this hostel. Before anything else, she said that this was not a nice part of town and that under no circumstances should I take anything valuable out with me. The place was interestingly decorated, but dirty and uncomfortable. Most of the other guests were noisy and music was pumped into the rooms until around 5a.m.

The hotel is in an area with a lot of thefts. I didnt feel safe here. The toilets had water on the floor. The bed sheets were stained. We had a reservation for 3 days but left early in the morning after our first night. The owner Gonzalo was rude and aggressive to both of us for even the littlest request, such as new sheets that we could even change ourselves. I wouldn´t recommend this hostel to any one. On the upside the town is beautiful and a great place to eat and drink.
