I asked for a room spontaneously. When I got here, it seemed to be the first day working at the hostel for the woman at the reception desk. She didn't know anything and had to keep calling somebody to the point that I felt really bad for her. (First she sent me to a room with undone beds, then she...

The staff was super welcoming, they even went out and bought oatmeal when I said that was my preferable breakfast. Comfortable beds, warm showers, the kitchen has everything you need so you can cook there if you want to. You can also keep anything in the refrigerator. It is a really welcoming family style place.

Makus is a great place to stay, good environment and good company ... Great place in an overall point of view. The prices are ok, everyone will help you get what you want to do, nightlife nearby and a lot of restaurants in a small step away ... Thanks to everyone there.

A nice, small, cosy place in a great location. The amenities (kitchen, WiFi, bathrooms, etc.) are all good. Arturo, the owner, doesn't speak English (the hostel staff speaks English) but he is friendly and welcoming and will go out of his way to help you. Genuinely a very nice guy. One of my favourite hostels. Recommended.

Nice location and chilled out buffet breakfast of cereals, yogurt and toast. Comfy beds and clean bathrooms with hot water. Friendly atmosphere among guests. Only flaw was very patchy and weak WiFi. Arturo, the owner was really helpful, giving us lots of information and this and booking airport transfers for us too.

“Private rooms are resonable price but dorms are good too for more socializing, although you can also socialize at the breakfasts.”
