    It was very beautiful downstairs! The common room and kitchen was very nice and organized also super colorful. Went to the room and the AC was on but no air flow whatsoever. Another issue was that nobody in there had any mask on for covid and understanding that the staff had that chill vibe going on it would’ve been nice if hand sanitizer was accessible along with soap in the upstairs bathroom! The bathrooms are a completely different story! we went into the private bathroom and there was hair around the toilet underneath the seat. No toilet paper was in there also no hand soap so I can wash after. People are loud at night even though they are friendly. Earbuds are accessible. So the cons are that the room was very hot even when the ac was on due to the vents being covered in dust. The restrooms were minimal not kept in the best manners especially during covid. Cleanliness could’ve been kept better but it’s not too horrible due to it being a hostel. Pros was that besides the room and bathroom the common room and kitchen were very nice but a place to stay at for a night I wouldn’t personally do. I’d probably come during winter when I know AC would like a little help from the weather. Sometimes people seemed too “cool” to have a conversation with you but it’s no big deal to me.

    House up a hill was generally comfortable, nicely decorated and clean. Bathroom was huge upstairs. The downstairs one had a bath too. Also other toilets downstairs. Kitchen was convenient and tv room cozy. Outside sitting area pleasant to enjoy the sunshine. Location convenient enough and not too busy. Good wifi during our stay. Great first impression from Ciro(?) hope its spelt right, from S. America and Earl(?), from USA, hope we got his name right too. He was always welcoming too and helpful. Saw him busy with other guests, cleaning and caring for the plants. On the negative. Unfortunately there were a couple of people who made us feel unwelcome and we weren't sure if they were guests, or staff, until later. Believe one was a house manager(light hair)and the other named Olivia(dark hair) from what was heard in passing. It was as though the house belonged to them and guests were annoyances to be ignored, tolerated or just be rude to. Very strange that they even work there. Did not see them working. Only hanging about at the house. The mixed room also did not smell great during our stay. But that would depend on the other guests there. There are stairs to climb going to the front door so its a little more of a work out. But noticed there's also an outside disabled type lift.

    It's located close to everything important, they have a great fee for bike rental and that way you get to see most of SD. Great staff and everyone respects house rules. Would recommend and stay again.

    Clean basic hostel

    Good cheap place, centrally located, not for everyone because it’s a hostel, and you sleep near stragers.
