I initially booked to stay here for two weeks, but ended up staying for a month, and then coming back again after being in south america. Absolutely loved staying at the hostel, it felt like home. I want to go back!

It's a very short walk (3 min) from the excitement of el centro but removed enough from it to relax. The rasta colored gates and the hammock at... More

We first met Jesse who was extremely helpful and very nice. Our room was clean and comfortable. Nice to have our space but also... More

We had one of the rooms in the house around the corner, but because of timing I guess, we had the whole house to ourselves. The house was pretty clean, the beds... More
