          I have to go to the airport very early too (5am flight!), is it easy to catch a taxi from the hostel? Also, looks like there is a big mall across the street, is it open yet? any banks inside to change some local currency?

          My flight gets in at 1:30 is the morning. Is it possible to take the shuttle from the bus and get a bed at that time of night?

          Hello Daniel We have a parking space in front of our door, we are in a close street. Also there is a parking space close to us, of course this is not from us and you have to pay a fee for this service.
