I stayed in this hostel for one night.
This is a nice hostel. It looks pretty good, showers and bathrooms are good and there is a very nice kitchen. The place also features a bar (though I don't think it is very popular).
The rooms are cool- each one has a theme of a different place in South America. They are spacious enough and even in the big dorm you can get a good night sleep.
Staff were pretty helpful and nice, we were looking for apartment and they helped us by searching the web and giving us phone numbers.
The location is the main disadvantage of this place. I read some people saying the area is cool by not being "El Poblado" (which is very western) but for me it was a weird spot. You don't fell comfortbale going out at night even though it supposed to be safe.
