El primer día que llegue no pudimos abrir la habitación n°4 ya que rodaba la cerradura. Me pidieron que dejara las llaves el día siguiente, no se hizo el cambio de la chapa como me habían indicado y el personal no tenia idea de lo que estaba hablando. Falta comunicación entre los recepcionistas. Aun espero que me puedan facilitar la escoba y la pala para hacer aseo en la habitación, durante mi estadía.

Este hostel es el mejor en ele que he estado creo que lo único a mejorar es todo lo referido al bar los previos son altos y no hay una persona capacitada para generar el encuentro en el bar con amigos y consumir .. solo eso el resto excelente Recepcon limpieza e instalaciones

Official check-out is 11:30 am but by 10 am they set up the beds already so you are sort of kicked out early unless you are literally still lying in your bed
