Good”

The location is close to the beach, 2-3 min and to some nice restaurants in the center. The rooms are basic. Our biggest problem was that there is no isolation in some places, where maybe it should have been, window or maybe some kind of mosquito or salamander nest. You can hear everything your neighbour are doing, including Tv, toilet and sleeping. The breakfast was basic, it was good that we had it (an egg and o small amount of gallo pinto). If you wanted one more egg, it was 2 usd. So...they value their eggs.

Pésima estancia”

Por fuera es un hostel bastante bonito. Las habitaciones son muy cutres, viejas, sin aire acondicionado, solo un ruidosísimo ventilador. El baño sin mosquitera (mosquitos garantizados). Una de las habitaciones sin televisión. Las ventanas son simplemente rejillas de cristal que dejan pasar todo el ruido y algún mosquito más, ya que le falta mantenimiento a las habitaciones en general. Cobrar 53 dólares por esto es un insulto
