    I am surprised to be reading all these negative reviews. It was by far the cheapest place I every stayed in. At this price one cannot really expect any standards. What I expected was a bed and a bathroom and this is what was provided....More

    For me this is not a hostel, it's a house who is still under construction! I didn't feel secure at all, the windows are fixed with plastic. No lockers. The room is really dirty, same with the bathroom. Trust me, you dont wanna shower there....More

    At $5 a night you can expect the worst but we still didnt expect the crack den which was supposedly a room. If you're on a very tight budget id recommend staying there as it does a job as a bed to sleep on but...More

    Buenas tardes el jefe, el dueño o su managero , We would like to know truthfully, if there are roaches,bugs or bedbugs? Is there a plastic cover over the mattresses ? We are planning on staying from November 24 to January 12 and we want the same room rate for the entire trip . We are retired married professors on a limited budget. We would like a room with a double bed or twin bed on the kitchen level, but the one farthest away from the kitchen. We don't mind cleaning, but we do not want to contend with bugs. We would appreciate an answer as soon as possible here is our email P.S. If you don't understand English I can write this in Spanish. Yo puedo explicar mi mensaje en español o francés si nadie no entiende inglés.
