So... People should know this hostel's name derives from the cats that live there. And, like any other feline, they will walk around believing everything belongs to them. Apart from that, the hostel is very well located. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Dear guest, thanks for the honest review, we can only say 'guilty as charged', our cat Mathias is the true boss here, honestly he is not too interested in interacting with the guests and hangs most of the time at the desk, but if a guest is lucky enough he might consider to warm his bed, but is not mandatory...

Family- owned hostel which is maintained on a regular basic ( clean, basic breakfast is included, good location but it can be noisy based on rallies held in a near park). Very friendly family who speaks fluent English and is able to provide information on all attractions in and out Asuncion.

Very helpful and friendly plus top location. Best hostel in Asuncion. Always stay there when in Asuncion (forth time). Owner and daughter speak English well and can assist in case any help is needed. Airport bus stops right in front on route to the city

Friendly Staff, flexible, safe. Located in an ideal corner, a block walk's away from the main downtown streets of Asuncion. A great place to take a break, read a book (on the sun deck), or leave your stuff to go for the day and come back to sleep. Hostel is an interesting historic building, ask the owner for details.
