As others have noted correctly, this is a decent hostel for the price. Perhaps the hallmark of the experience is the that it is family owned. Antonio and his family are great. Janet, though not a family member does a great job as does Alex and Valarie ( Not sure if I am correct as to her name, you will know her by her infectious smile). At any rate, its not bad. That said, I can't say it is great.
There are some things that could be fixed rather cheaply. They need to fix some paint issues that exist around and within the property. Also, change out the battery so that the time is reflected properly in the common area. It may seem a minor point, but you do not want to miss you trip guide.
Lastly, and this is, in part beyond their control, but there are stray dogs. With that, comes what stray dogs do, and that is leave a little something behind. It leaves an extreme odor. You can't clean the whole street, but you can do something about your own stoop; a little bleach and water. Bear in mind this is common to the area.
That said, in terms of the family, service, value and location you do well here. It's not bad, it has a decent location and for the price its a good deal.
