We got what they called 'the best room in the hostel' and it was dirty. Other than the bed, which was made, there was dirt all over the floor and the bathroom had not been cleaned.
We asked for towels. Were told it was not really something they offered and there were only about 6 towels in the hostel, even though we offered to pay. They said they would get some for us, but they never did.
Big gap under the door led to several scorpians and various other creatures making their way into the room. They need to fill up the gap with something.
It has a pretty big garden but so do many other cheap places in San Marcos. It is cheap at Hostal Del Lago but there are other places for only a little more. I would not stay there again.More
