O que mais me chamou a atenção nesse hostel foi a equipe muito prestativa! Lá, você já pode contratar diversos passeios e qualquer dúvida é sanada pela senhorita Milagros ou por Oscar, que são ótimos no trabalho que realizam! A senhora Epi, responsável pelo café da manhã, também é muito prestativa e prepara ótimas refeições. Pelo valor, o hostel excedeu as minhas expectativas. É um pouco longe da Plaza de Armas, mas isso não é um agravante, pois as ruas são seguras para se andar mesmo à noite.

What did I like? Despite having a booking , and a valid ref. no; I couldn't stay at this hostel! I have been a member of I.Y.H.A. for 35 yrs! They could not find my booking on their computer, despite my ref no, so I was NOT ALLOWED to stay there!

Wouldn't know, because when I finally got there, after travelling for 18 hrs, they had no record of my booking, even when I showed them my copy! They had NO ROOM, nor dorm bed;;; I AM AN INTERNATIONAL YOUTH HOSTEL MEMBER FROM THE LAST 30 YRS, and I couldnt stay because some person at the desk couldn't speak the language of the planet, ie ENGLISH!, so I walked out in disgust. I had to go and pay again at another hostel down the road!
