“Good Basics for the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is your typical hostel, nothing fancy. My family found it a very good for the price. We've stayed here a couple of times over the past year in various rooms. Some of the rooms are better than others, the best are on the third floor with private baths. We thought these were the best, but be warned they all have slanted roofs so watch your head if you're tall. We found them charming but others may not like that. The rooms with shared bath are okay but the shared bathroom on the second floor is very worn and sad looking. The positives: great location, free breakfast (basics), clean bathrooms, multiple areas downstairs to relax, free computer with internet, friendly staff, good towels (not the paper thin kind). The negatives: free wifi only sporadically works on the first floor, the floors are squeaky (bring ear plugs), no heat or air conditioning, the furniture on the main floor is pretty worn, you can only pay bill in cash. If you need good free wifi go to the Magic Bean a couple of blocks away they have decent menu and outside bar for coffee drinks on the go, but service can be slow. Also, there are a couple of English bookstores nearby where you can trade in your books (paperback) and get new ones which is a great thing when traveling! Forgot the names by they are only a block or two of the main square.

Room Tip: We liked the rooms on the third floor with the slanted ceilings, if you are okay with character. Roo...

For the price, this is a very decent place. Quiet, yet close to all the trendy restaurants and clubs. Clean, the staff is nice, breakfast is included, Wi-Fi, a sprawling set of sitting and living rooms where you can relax with a book or chat with friends. The bed was good too, I had no problem sleeping.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are darker and noisier, some have mold problems--but they have the best Wi...

The personnel is helpless, they give you the wrong information about busses and schedules, internet DOESN'T WORK, rooms are barely OK, bathrooms are badly cleaned.
Incompetent, dirty and bad wifi. CRAP!

Manuela G, Propietario at Posada Del Maple, responded to this review, April 9, 2013

Me he tomado algunos días para responder ya que la situación fue extrema. El hostal es conocido en el mundo de los viajeros internacionales desde hace más de 22 años y ha sido ampliamente recomendado a través de los años, de tal forma que hemos crecido desde 3 habitaciones a 18 y, personas cecanas tienen 4 hostales que nacieron por nuestra demanda. Nuestras instalaciones mejoran permanentemente porque yo soy viajera y respondo a lo que veo se puede necesitar o mejorar después de cada experiencia nueva. Lamentablemente no se puede complacer a todos y, aunque durante los 22 años de existencia hemos tenido algunos problemas (algunos por situaciones ajenas a nuestra responsabilidad), podemos contar con los dedos de una mano los similares al ocurrido con la señora que escribe la queja. El hostal cuenta con servicio de 2 cabinas de internet y zona wifi, lo que implicó inversión y significa un alto gasto mensual, pero es imposible garantizar el servicio de un proveedor. La pasajera empezó el reclamo porque ese momento (según ella,ya que otros pasajeros dijeron lo contrario) no había servico de wi fi, para luego protestar por todo, entre eso la información sobre buses al aeropuerto (aunque la información está expuesta claramente en carteles en sitios estratégicos). Después agredió a la empleada de turno al extremo de casi llegar a la violencia física. pOr el escándalo acudió el gerente y en respuesta a sus gritos y amenaza de que se iría a otro hostal y exigir la devolución de su pago total de su estadía (3 días), el gerente pidió se le devuelva el importe del día y le pidió abandonar el hostal, lo que llevó tiempo y más agresión. Lo extraño es que la señora había llegado el 1 de abril y se alojó sin ningún problema y con buena actitud, retornó el 5 y recien el 6 a las 8 pm con una actitud totalmemente fuera de lo aceptable, se dió el suceso. Debo aclarar que para poder retornar a la calma y que la señora abandone nuestras instalaciones, se le devolvió el importe completo del día 6, aunque eran las 8 pm y había pagado con tarjeta, por lo que no solo perdimos el día de hospedaje sino el IVA y la comisión que cobra la tarjeta,
Como propietaria del hostal rechazo la agresión y falta de respeto a cualquier miembro del personal, más aun a Judith que ha trabajado con nosotros desde la apertura y ha probado su compromiso con su trabajo y responsabilidades por más de 22 años.
Aprovecho para expresar mi disconformidad sobre el que las personas puedan exponer temas como estos sin firma ni nombre. Por supuesto, sé el nombre de la pasajera pero no he querido escribirlo por principio ético, sin embargo creo que los propietarios y administradores de los negocios deberíamos tener la posibilidad de exponer el nombre y datos completos de este tipo de personas para alertar a otros de negocios similares.
Manuela Gallegos, propietaria.

We stayed here a couple of nights and booked via booking.com. We had a really good deal which resulted in good room (private twin) for a few bucks. The hostel is big and you have good internet signal. The staff is helpfull and friendly. Breakfast is very simple, but is enough to start-up. Next to that, the location of the hostel is very goog. It is located near a bus-stop, the nightlife, restaurants.

Room Tip: If you walk to the street where the bus drives, you'll find a good working ATM (which are genera...

This small hostel is very comfortable, the beds are clean and comfy. The eggs and toast breakfast is a little repetitive, but ample. The place is nice and quiet with respectful people. Not a place to really hang out and get to know other travelers. All the furnishings and decor is a little tired out and worn. BUT! there is this horrible barking dog in the next lot which can ruin a lovely afternoon nap or rest on the rooftop and will definitely wake you for breakfast. It barks loudly on and off for most of the day and afternoon. If the owners could solve this, the stay would be much better.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are tidy and clean, the water is nice and hot and the showers are good. Any of the...

I arrived late at night and as arranged there was an airport pick up waiting for me!!! I was delighted the hostel were ale to organise this for me, for an extra charge of USD10 On arrival I had booked the "mini suite" as recommended on other reviews. The room was clean and comfortable if a little dated. Breakfast was ok...fresh orange juice, a piece of water melon, toast and some fairly dodgy scrambled eggs.... I would have preferred just cereal and toast instead of the eggs, however that didn't seem to be available....however for the price it was fine (USD28 for the night....I paid a little extra for the "mini suite" standard rooms are cheaper) Staff were very pleasant and friendly. I left early the next morning, so didn't really use any of the communal areas but they looked nice and had comfy couches and also there was a free wifi!! All in all a pleasant stay
