My stay during the 2nd week of November was about a week. Although Jorge the Manager did not speak English I understood whatever he spoke. He was very helpful. I met Monic the owner during the latter part of my stay. She is a very warm person, very informative and helpful. Monic lives in a unit on the upper floor....

We had a reservation at the Posada del Maple, but they sent us to this hostel. A few thoughts: Near the restaurants/bars, but I wouldn't have felt safe there if I were a woman traveling alone. Good hot water and pressure, but the bathroom was smelly. I was happy they had eggs at breakfast with the toast, juice, and coffee....

The rooms are modern, clean, mine was bright. Breakfast is included, Wi-Fi is available, and the place is convenient to the trendy Mariscal area. Service was sullen or non-existent. But most of all, you can hear the nearby club as if you were there. I had an early flight the next day, I didn't manage to sleep a minute--with earplugs!...

We made a reservation and got it confirmed even twice-the second time the day of arrival. But when we showed up they pretendet not to know anything about it. No excuses no nothing. Very rude! So if you want to be sure to get a room, go somewhere else.

I stayed here almost a week in late March 2012. Clean room, private bath/consistent hot water, lots of pressure. Good value, especially with free Wi-Fi and breakfast included. Wi-Fi worked excellent. Guests have kitchen privileges, bottled drinking water available 24/7. Excellent security. Very friendly, and helpful staff!! Just a couple of blocks walk to the center of Mariscal shopping, restaurant,...

We stayed a couple of nights at Hostal Alcala. If you want to stay in Gringolandia/Mariscal, this place is great. The rooms were big enough, the bathrooms were small, but with good water pressure and stable temperatures, and everything was clean. The breakfast was great! Buffet style for coffee/tea/hot milk and toast. They made you eggs and gave you fruit...

We enjoyed our stay here. Decent breakfast and great location. Little loud on a Friday night for a while (noise not from the hostel but a neighborhood bar) but got quiet by 11:00. Staff was great, did our laundry, got a taxi ordered for us successfully, at really early times in the am to the airport, my friend left at...

I reserved a room at Hostal Alcala more than a month in advance, and confirmed a week beforehand, but when I arrived at the hotel around midnight (I told them I was going to arrive late) after a long bus ride, there was no room for me. I had to go to several other nearby hotels, all of which were...
