Liked: The private ensuite rooms, and especially those on the 3rd floor, are more like those found in a B&B or hotel than in hostels. Although the kitchen was a bit small for the number of guests, it functioned adequately because the guests were thoughtful in how they used it. The public spaces, including the kitchen, were always very clean. The hostel never had a noise problem from either the guests or the neighborhood, which is very safe and convenient to inexpensive eateries and a large Exito supermarket. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would gladly stay here again. Kelvin is a very friendly and helpful host that clearly knows how to run a successful hostel!

Disliked: Although not really a "dislike" since the kitchen is currently adequate and well maintained (clean and tidy), a larger one would be appreciated.
