La ubicación es buena, a unos 10 o 15 minutos del centro caminando. La limpieza deja bastante que desear, sobro todo en la habitación, donde la cocina y la zona de las camas estaban bastante sucias. En la habitación no había utensilios de cocina, y tenías que traerlos desde otro edificio.

Budget meal tip

For quite bites, be it hot or cold, just pop over to the supermarket across the hostel to get sandwiches, fruits, drinks, soups, snacks, vegetables etc. Good to the wallet !
