After hearing good things about this hostel from friends that had stayed here previously and from reading the mostly positive reviews I was expecting good things from Damajuana but it didn't live up to expectations. The dorm was like a cell in the basement with windows that looked on to the street which meant it was very noisey...the locals also used the window as a toilet in the early hours...The toilet broke on the first day and the staff never tried to fix it. The other toilets in the basement also didn't work very often. The cold water stopped working so could only have scalding showers...again staff never fixed it or offered a discount. The mattresses were ripped, the sheets dirty and the pillows harder than a plank of wood. We tried the bbq one day but despite being told it would start at 9.30 - it was after 11 before we got our first piece of meat. Only good think about the hostel is the green space at the back - stay somewhere else!
