    Very Good8.0
    Good location but noisy
    Pros- 1. Location was great, a stones throw from bars/ restaurants of el poblano 2. The hostel building itself is new and therefore v clean 3. Value.. This was the cheapest double room I could get in the area Cons 1. Noise. We were in a private room upstairs and we could hear everything that people were saying downstairs. Also there is a club outside that plays pumping music until 4am. The staff need to be a bit more careful with people watching television late as again, people in the the upstairs rooms can hear every word.
