I have stayed in many places bad around the world in India, Nepal, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Bolivia. But the difference with these places is that they are cheap. El Andaluz Hostal looks like it has not seen a clean since it was opened. There are coakroaches under the beds, smears all over the walls, some of the rooms are like prison cells and overall it ist plain dirty. Also the hostal itself is full of circus performers, jewellery makers and hippies not a problem but they seem to take over the whole place. There are a lot better places in town like Iquana and Tilian which are around the same price, have better equipped kitchens and actually get cleaned.
