Got there 'cause the hostel I was planning to stay at turned out to be fully booked.
All in all depends what you are looking for. This place is a typically hippie, zen-style place where things go their own ways. It will not be a 5* hostel with clean towels etc.
It's rather messy and does not offer neither towels nor lockers but you can leave your things with the guys in the office.
The above can be flaws but if you are more after the hippie spirit of San Marcos, this is a fair place to stay ( 35Q/bed + 50Q key deposit ). I had no problems and enjoyed hammocks. Have not used showers so not able to comment on that.
There is a little bathroom in the room ( no door, just some hanging curtain ) - depends if you have issues with such things; you can use the shower / toilet in a separate facility.
Probably would stay there another time but it was not the best hostel I've been to.
Liked to chill by the lake but there are better places in San Marcos.
