Dragonfly hostel is located within walking distance to just about everything in Mia Flores, with a laundry service and a sweet restaurant next door.

This hostel has a great location, only a minutes walk from the Kennedy Park and the boulevard. The hostel is small, but charming and clean, and has a nice rooftop patio where you can hang around. The staff is also really friendly and the hostel has a nice kitchen you can use.

Got a really warm welcome at this hostel and the staff are super friendly and helpful. The rooms are, let's say, cosy! I stayed in both a four bed and eight bed dorm, and the latter was a little too cramped when the room was full, but it wasn't a problem as really only slept in there, and the bunks...
