Rooms are okay. If you stay in the better rooms (above the road) you cant get into the kitchen. Service is the worst you can imagin! They forgot to wash our laundry. Brought it to us wet in the middle of the night...

Very helpful hostess. Expected a little more for the price. May look out of town on the map, but it is really not. On the last day I used the common bathroom, it does not flush well. Other guests were very friendly and we all could have our turn in the kitchen.

Lovely hostel which doesn't really feel like a hostel (which we liked). We were in room 6 (double with private bathroom) which was nice, maybe a little small but was fine for two. The bathroom was small, I'm short and had to sit sideways on the toilet because my knees were squished against the wall! Didn't bother us, was more...

I had booked myself into their cheapest room online. After spending a night in this very small room (with a shared bathroom across a patio area) and which is next to the communal kitchen and not having slept a wink due to the noise coming from next door, I asked if a move to another room was possible... Not only...

I am writing this report because I am beyond upset with the manager, owner and front desk employee at this hostel. I have a few complaints, so I'll start with the primary issue. 1. The description of this hostel as 'secure' is inaccurate. Here is what happened to me and my friend on Dec 14 and 15, 2015. We stayed...

Small hotel with very clean rooms, comfortable beds, fresh linens, friendly helpful staff. We stayed in a room with a shared bath for one night and a private bath the next two. The regulator went bad on the hot water and they were responsive to fix it. It was a few blocks past the bus station and we could walk...

This place is very clean, it's very professional. The location is great, don't be dissuaded by looking at a map and seeing it next to the edge of town; it's where you want to be. 7 minutes from the Plaza and El Centro de San Pedro,, you walk past a soccer field and some playgrounds on the way. All the...

Stayed at this hostel for 5 nights during my time in San Pedro. Throughout the time my single room and queen bed gave me a good nights rest after long days in the desert. It's about a 10-15 min walk from the main center of the town, but located ideally for those who have their own vehicle and want to...
