6/10 Good

Let me be honest and start positive as I genuinely loved this place even though my scores do not reflect it. The building itself is of the historic colonial kind so it's very beautiful and the surrounding area is fantastic. It has so much potential as a hostel but that being said it's pretty run down. Simple, small things could have improved my stay here, for example none of the bathrooms have a shower head holder. This is pretty basic and easy to fix so it kind of conveys the overall standard of the place. The rooftop area could be exceptional but it's just shabby. It's all slightly disappointing really. The rooms have creaky wooden floors and echoing high ceilings which makes for a lot of noise unfortunately. The toilets are not clean. My bed was comfortable, the breakfast basic. It has a lot of character and I get the impression that they are working to improve the place. I would definitely recommend this to backpackers but not to travellers who prefer the order and cleanliness of hotels.

Un hostel muy básico con bonitas áreas comunes. El cobro aumentó al llegar al hotel ya que no incluye el cobro por impuestos ni uso del datáfono. Habitaciones grandes y si volvería a ese lugar.
