“Some improvements needed”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

Sunset house is located in the quaint neighborhood of San Blas. It's a new hostel (opened around May 2011) and could do with some improvements. the manager Manuel is very friendly but is often absent and hasn't got that many local contacts yet (eg his solution to finding us a pizza delivery service or motorbike rental was to search Google). The double room was ok, but only one power point, tv with poor reception and poor wifi signal. Also the carpet hadn't been vacuumed properly.
24/7 hot water. kitchen was just
Bathrooms often lacked enough toilet paper and the bins weren't emptied often. Wifi signal also poor in the lounge area, which was dusty and not very homely. The building is beautiful inside, very colorful and decorated well but the aforementioned items must be addressed if it is to compete with similarly priced hostels in San Blas.
