Don't let the price fool you
An amazing experience. Inexpensive, friendly staff, great environment. Highly recommended.... Bring your own towel and don't forget shower shoes (sandals, flip-flops)

Very Good8.0
Not enought common utilities for so many rooms
The hostel is very well organized and it great condition. However, the common space rooms are a bit short for so many beds. I was here in the low season and, as such, this was not a big issue, but if the beds occupancy are above 60%, i immage it wont be a nice place to stay (overcrowded).
