Liked: Beautiful building, great atmosphere, and one of the few hostels downtown, not in Miraflores. We were a little unsure how safe it would be walking around downtown, but we had no issues in the day or evening.

Disliked: No complaints.

Liked: Very nice location (nice that it's not in Miraflores), beautiful old building in front of the national museum and big dorms. Free walking tours offered by the hostels, enough (hot) showers, overall pretty good.

Disliked: Loud spotify-playlist music at nights but without the good atmosphere you would hope for - nothing unusual for such a big hostel, still not nice if the walls are thin. Staff is not unfriendly although you can feel that its maybe too many people they have to help with something; again nothing dramatic but nothing to get excited about either.
