Had a very nice stay here, enjoyed the room and views to the huge park in front were excellent. The owner and staff were all very friendly and made me feel so welcome during my visit. Huge La Sabana park across the street is great for wandering around and people watching!

Exceptional 10.0
Really great place to stay
Probably the best hostel I have stayed in anywhere. The rooms are of a good size and very comfortable. The staff & owners are very helpful & friendly. The quality of the food in the restaurant is excellent, although the portions are huge and a bit difficult for one person to manage. Apart from that no complaints. Would stay here again.
