Trip Type:
City break

Liked: It's a very small and simple hostel. Definitely get what you pay for - a simple bed with sheets and in a great part of town. Not too much to rave about, but it's decent enough to stay for a day or two! Not a hostel to stay in if you're looking to socialize, just a clean bed to sleep in and good breakfast!

Disliked: I wish there were more options for socializing with other guests or tips on things to do at night. The owner seemed very out of things that were going on in the city. We were also lucky we were two of the few people in the room. There are only 2 fans for about 10 beds, and the room is on the top floor of a small building, making it super hot! We had to sleep right under the fans to sleep at night.

Liked: The staff was very kind and helpfull, especially the english guy who speaks spanish perfectly! The breakfast was good and it's situated in the center of the historic center, that's perfect.

Disliked: I slept in the 9 bed room upstairs, the cheapest one I know but for this price in my opinion for sure it could be better. The room is old and the furniture, mattres and pillows the worst, each one diferent it seems that they take all the old forniture in the rubbish, pillows not dirty disgusting! The old sink that there is in the room smell pis, take one bed far from there... And if it's not enough there are a lot of mosquitos in the room and you can not do anything because the windows are broken. I couldn't sleep well any night. But is true that the common rooms downstais and the prive rooms are much better, my recomendation if you wanna stay there is pay a little bit more, then you will sleep better.The common area next to the reception is small but it will be fine if the owners will wash the poor dog that they have, he smells so bad and he is laying all the day around there, if they can not take care of the dog don't have a big dog in a hostel!The breakfast was ok, but they put everytime a small amount of bread, ham, cheese, if there are more than 3 people you have to wait that they put some more...

Liked: everythingbest hostel yetstaff were so friendly, and helpful. location was perfect, it was very clean. we couldnt get a coach ticket to sao paulo as they all had sold out, but the staff at the hostel were very caring and helpful and the owner drove us there, although more expensive than the coach would have been, at least we were not stranded!

Disliked: nothing except be careful of the dog, it can bite! so don't try to touch it

Liked: It was a pretty standard hostel, but it did have a bar with cheap drinks.

Disliked: They keep a mean dog on the property. He doesn't bite, but he will scare the guests. He walks up like he wants some attention, but if you pet him he freaks out and lunges at you. The staff wasn't incredibly helpful, there's room for improvement there. Simple things like providing maps of the town, etc.

Liked: Location is awesome.

Disliked: The room was extremely warm (and also had 7 beds though we booked into a 6). Bedding and mattresses had seen better days and could use replacing (most of the stuff was pretty worn). The staff was hard to deal with and not very helpful. Wifi was touch and go...overall not a great experience!
