The room was interior with no windows and no air conditioning. It was a cell at over $70 a night cash only. I decided to leave and they wouldn’t give me my money back. There is no restaurant. Only Spanish is spoken. Music blares until curfew at midnight. It was an atrocity that cost $200 cash for one night and they wouldn’t give me a receipt

8/10 Very Good

No cuentan con punto de venta no lo dice en las referencias del hostal, solo pagos en efectivo, esto me afecto el presupuesto ya que hiba a pagar con tarjeta de crédito. No estan ofreciendo desayuno por lo del COVID, deberían informarlo ya que mis reservas siempre las hago que ofrezcan el desayuno. Pero en general para el precio qué pague me pareció bien el área social es bonita puedes llevar tus alimentos y prepararlos en sitio, las cocinas son completas y bonitas. También deberían informar que tienen cocinas.

No reserves!
Bastante mal. Según la reserva incluía desayuno para dos que luego nos dijeron que no había por el COVID. Sin avisar! Había cocinas pero no había ningún utensilio para cocinar lo que la hacía inservible. Todo bastante descuidado. La chica de recepción nunca estaba en recepción
