Liked: Beautiful hostel with colonial yet modern architecture. Breakfast was good and included.

Disliked: - I had to wait and waste 30min of water for getting mildly hot water. - They gave me the key of a locker different than the number of my bed, then gave another key of the locker to the guy who actually belonged to, he complained with me. (I dont know if to blame it on me but misteriously 450 pesos dissapeared). - No good visistor information or help provided. - Computer charge you in 5 peso coins and the administration is not clever enough to have coins for braking your bills and letting you use the computer.

Liked: It is super clean and cute and the staff is very professional and friendly. We had to leave on an early flight the next morning and were not able to stay for the free breakfast so the staff made us sandwiches and gave us juice and fruit to go!

Disliked: The lockers are too small if you have large luggage, but big suitcases can fit under the beds.

09 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The otherwise nice receptionist forgot to wash my laundry which was pretty annoying cause i had to leave that day and had to carry my laundry with me for another day. There are more fun places, but it is a nicely decorated building, safe, clean and with good, free breakfast. Overall I would still recommend it although there are probably other choices with more atmosphere (though I have to admit that this might have been partly cause the place was all but crowded).

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Absolutely the best hostel I've EVER been to, and I've been in hostels in Madrid, Paris, Guadalaraja, Mexico City, and Oaxaca. This hostel has a clean atmosphere, the breakfast in the morning included with the stay is DELICIOUS, and the staff is super friendly. We had a minor issue with booking, so make sure you call before to make sure your reservation is confirmed!

Disliked: Chirag left no negative feedback.
