We got a room with a broken shower and no hot water. The receptionist then found a room with hot water (working only upon request) but which had not been cleaned before. The bathroom was unbelievably dirty, sheets were not clean either. We asked for cleaning but they only washed the floor. The building and its equipment are in a... More

Cotubanama was great. It's about as close as you an get to the center of town, and has comfortable rooms (with A/C!) 24-hour (English-speaking) front desk support.

During our week stay was all great. The employees were very friendly, the room was very clean and very comfortable. We had a sink in our room. We handled all the excursions and save a lot of money. I really highly recommend this backpackers.

Although it is advertised as backpackers friendly it is not unless you can book a room for five. I was given a stinky room - dirty sheets, noisy fan, no light in the bathroom, no hot water and water leaking the whole time.
