I loved the staff! Karen, Eliete, Tía Cook, and Boss Guy were all very nice, funny, and intelligent people. It was easy to get used to them and feel comfortable. It was awesome that there was a place to scrub my dirty clothes as well xD! I will return here :)

Die Lage ist sehr gut. Frühstück auf der Terrasse mit Blick auf den Corcovado ist schön. Das Haus könnte insgesamt etwas aufgefrischt werden und gepflegter sein. Es dürfte einen Kühlschrank haben den die Gäste benützen dürfen. Auch Trinkwasser zum Frühstück oder ganztags zur Verfügung sein

José Tomás,

Gracias por tu comentário !! Vamos a verificar la situación del colchón, pero hace 2 años cambiamos 95 % de ellos, no debería haber problema, pero igual, lo verificaremos. El tema de la limpieza pues que te puedo decir: se limpia adequadamente, 1 vez por dia, normal, entre 11-3 de la tarde aprox.. Es una habitación pequeña, y no había mucha gente en el hostal en esas fechas, no deveria haber habido algún problema. Normalmente si el huesped hace una reclamación en cuanto todavia esta con nosotros pues lo checamos para ver si hubo algún problema pero no hubo ningún comentario de tu parte. La chica que hace la limpieza es una excelente trabajadora, estoy seguro que a ella, como a nosotros, nos interesa saber exactamente que significaria "mayor limpieza". Si tienes tiempo por favor envíanos a De cualquier manera gracias por haberte tomado el tiempo de evaluar :)
