“Great hostel in a great city”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This hostel is located in a very nice and safe part of the city. It is very near a huge supermarket and also a Metro station. The people working in the hostel were very, very nice and helpful. The atmosphere was really cheerful. There was a great kitchen which was well used. The common area was outside and pleasant. Very clean. I highly recommend this hostel without any reservation. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay here.

We stayed two nights in this hostel. We were a group of four (two couples) and each couple had a large, clean and comfortable room. The common areas are somewhat old-fashioned and a bit small, but cosy. There are only 3 bathrooms for the whole hostel, which sometimes can be a bit short.
The hostel is located close to the old zona rosa of cra. 70, which is a must-see. Also, the proximity to the metro and a huge supermarket are definitely good points.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms on the second floor and try to avoid the room next to the yard.

Very good and friendly, the atmosphere was excellent.
The house is very nice & tastefully decorated. It is kept very clean, near a metro stop, not far from the centre, in a good neighbourhood, for me was a good location.

We really enjoyed this hostal. The friendly staff was helpful and made us feel very welcome. The hostal is located in a great neighborhood, with lots of local, non touristy places nearby. But the place is on a busy street. You may hear trucks rumbling by or idling throughout the night. Bring earplugs or ask for a room not facing the street.

The hostel is located very close to the metro system. The personnel is extremely friendly. There are quite a few food shops nearby. I loved their idea about self cooked breakfast with ingredients provided by them.

I planned only three nights, but ended up staying three weeks in total. Enough said! :) First of all the location is simply fantastic - supermarkets, cheap restaurants, bars and a metro station all within a short walk. The place itself is very clean and comfortable with the most amazing staff I've ever got to know in any hostel before!! All of them (Madeluz, Pilar, Luisa, Manuel and Daniela), including a cleaning lady Doña Luz, were extremely helpfull, always smiling and full of energy! :) My best stay ever!!!

I stayed with a friend five nights in this hostel and it was a really nice stay. The staff is extremely charming and helpful, the hostel clean and quiet and it lies in a nice and safe neighborhood (we never had problems coming back late in the night). Also it is very near to the metro so within 10 minutes you are at the city center. For people who are looking for a quiet and centric hostel, I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms that are not to the street are quieter.
