    Great Hostel with an amazing Host. Located just 10 minutes from the historical center, all the bars, restaurants, clubs, shop and everything else you are looking for. We can also really recommend the river just a 5 minute walk from the hostel, offering the perfect opportunity to relax or taking a sunbath. We also were really happy with the equipment, the mixed dorm room for 5 was perfect for us and had everything we needed. Most of the other guest were very nice and relaxed aswell :).

    Super schönes Hostel mit bequemer Einrichtung und allem was man braucht. Es wird so gut wie jeden Tag geputzt und der Besitzer ist sehr freundlich. Die Lage ist auch recht gut und Supermarkt sowie Altstadt sind einfach fußläufig zu erreichen.

    Very nice staff, family owned if I'm not mistaken. They let us stay until 10 pm after we checked out the last day and had to wait for our bus to Baños to leave. Breakfast isn't included but super cheap and nice in the cafe next door.

    A really nice hostel with a cool style. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. I had a small single room, which was perfect and quiet! Great Shower and a kitchen you actually want to use. If not, the Café next door has good deals for breakfast aswell.

    Xavier was super friendly and helpful. Response to e-mail beforehand was super quick. Due to covid not many travellers when I was there but can imagine there would be a great vibe with more people.

    Super gemütliches Hostel, mit allem, was man braucht. Die Zimmer waren sauber, Betten bequem und nebenan ein tolles Kaffee mit Vergünstigungen für die Hotelgäste. Die Lage empfanden wir als überhaupt nicht störend, für ins Zentrum 7-10 Minuten, ein schöner Spaziergang nach dem Abendessen. Top!

    Nice hostel if you want to have some days on your own. But it's definitely the wrong place to meet people!
