Liked: Nice friendly property in a great location - five minutes walk to Plaza des Armas and supermarkets etc all very convenient. All of the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We arrived at 7am from a night bus and were able to get straight into our room and take breakfast. Nice to be able to use kitchen facilites. Everything is kept really clean. Comfy beds with lovely big down quilts to keep us warm. Great wifi too.

Disliked: Tracy left no negative feedback.

Liked: The family running the hostel were very friendly and flexible. As a group of four we stayed in both the dorm and private room. Both were good accommodation and when 3 of us left for our trek, they happily let our remaining friend stay in the dorm. The hostel is very small and quaint, we liked the character of the building and quiet area (is 5mins walk from center of town, very convenient).

Disliked: Nothing really - when in the dorm room the shower and toilet are downstairs next to the kitchenette area, but not a problem if you have flip flops!

Liked: Staff was really frindly and helped us whn ever we needed help or information. Brekafast was also good.

Disliked: It was so cold, especially during the nights and there weren´t any haeting system. Watr in shower was also very unpredictable because in occasionally there were only very hot water and sometimes very cold and then suddenly it was okey, so you couldn´t tell if you were going to have warm ahover or shower whcich water changed a lot during th shower.

Liked: The staff are very helpful - despite being ill for most of my stay at Marlon´s the staff were attentive and did everything they could to rearrange the activities we had planned. The groundfloor room is noisy, but I suspect the upstairs rooms not so. It is clean and well looked after, and the breakfast is delicious. Convenient location 5 minutes walk from the main square.

Disliked: There are no locks on the rooms and nolockers for valuables, so I recommend you bring your own padlocks for bags.

Liked: This would be a great place to stay for families, couples, or people looking to rest for a quiet time in a private room. The dorms were not as great, see below. Breakfast was yoghurt, tea/coffe, cereal, bread rolls, and a lady comes to make you an egg- although that can sometimes take a while depending what else she is doing at the time. The water was always really hot in the downstairs shower for the dorms, it was cold once and the gas bottle was changed as soon as I mentioned it- nowhere around here has central heating for water you see. The staff are quite friendly and do try to make it a nice stay for you, but they seem more concerned about the tour agency than the hostel- most places that have an agency always are grrr. The front door is always locked and has to be opened by staff, the doorbell can go off at night but at least it's safe. For the dorms there is only 1 key so the door is always open to staff & other guests. The location is just 10mins walk to the central plaza across the other plazas in town so perfect, it's close enough but not too close to the noisy bars.

Disliked: The toilet & shower rooms for the dorms are downstairs built into the kitchen/dinning area, not a great place to put them and it's a fair walk from the dorms. The cleaning/breakfast lady is kinda lazy, I saw her laying on a bed watching TV one day when she was supposed to be cleaning the room haha. And sometimes she just doesn't come and sort out breakfast when it's running low. There is no recent communial area. I think they class the breakfast/dinning area as a lounge because there is a small TV on the wall but it's cold and only got wooden chairs & tables. This place seems to be booming between 6-9am when the staff arrive but after that it's dead all day!
