real backpacker hostel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 16, 2007

This is a fantastic new hostel in the old town made by backpackers and for backpackers. It is small to medium size with three dorm rooms and two privates, the dorm rooms are excellent value at $5 a bed. The house is a renovated historical building with a rooftop terrace with fab views. The beds are very comfortable, there are modern bathrooms with hot showers 24hrs. It has a shared kitchen with all the facilities you need, there is a tv lounge with dvds also. The best thing for me was the bar and the chance to socialise with the friendly staff and other guests, though there were not many people there as I was one of the first customers. Great tunes and a very friendly vibe.
The rooms dont have private bathrooms and the private rooms are usually booked. In the morning a bit of traffic passed by but it didnt bother me. The rooms are on the floor above the bar so when there are people partying you dont hear it because they shut the doors to keep in the noise. this hostel is great for those travelling alone or with little English, the people that run the place backpacked around south america so they gave me lots of advice. Probably not the first choice for people wanting privacy and not into the socialising thing. the area is quiet at night but a couple of good restaurants closeby. At night I went out with the staff after drinks at the bar. The Mariscal area is best for the nightlife but it is really close and only $1.50 -$2 by taxi or you can catch the bus and be there in about 10 minutes. The best thing is that you are right on the edge of the historical center, and that is where all the things to see are. The Mariscal has too many tourists and really only good for bars and western food.
A real backpacker hostel suited more to the young or young at heart.
