02 March 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very accomodating staff. Very well located in center of town, in a "quiet at night" part of centro, not near the bar noise. The directions on the web posting to get from the bus station to the hostel could be more descriptive, had a little trouble finding the place, but once there, it was worthwhile.
