Friendly staff but average facilities
Pros: situated at quite near to everything , near metro and bus stops, well situated for exploration of the city. Staff are nice and helpful. The place is well decorated and with a roof top terrace that is good for enjoying music and drink from the bar. There is a kitchen with cooking utensils , microwave and refrigerator for use . There is a common place with sofas and computer for meeting new people or just searching for information . Cons: The hotel itself is a rather old building and some of the walls and floors worn out, accumulating dust. I once dropped a wet towel onto the floor of my single room, it stuck with a layer of dirts when I picked it up. Kitchen is tiny and the cooking untensils are just adequate for 2 people cooking at the same time. The hot water in my roomwasn't promising and finally I used the public shower to have hot shower. The breakfast is not included and costs an extra of 150 pesos for very basic breakfast.

Hostel had bed bugs but tried their best to solve
We stayed here in Feb 2019 and two rooms we stayed in had bed bugs. The hostel did try to help clear them but couldn’t move us to a room without them. The bathrooms aren’t great either. The area is good and the bar and terrace are very nice.
