Fueron muy amables, me dejaron quedar todo el día siguiente de la noche que dormí ahí. No tenían papel en los baños. No hay WiFi más allá de la recepción. Los mosquitos no me dejaron dormir bien y las sábanas de la cama no sé si estaban tan limpias.

Fue muy dificil ubicar el hostel. Que bueno que ao menos estavamos con mobilidad. Cuando empeco a llover hubo agua dentro de la habitacion y en la cama. Havia muchos animales (gatos) en el sitio del desayuno, asi que salimos de la mesa ellos terminaram de comer todo.
