The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful, and very attentive. Beautiful rooms and view from hostel. Had a great time practicing my Spanish with staff...

On 4JAN I reserved a room online for 6 & 7JAN at $140 per night. I arrived at 14:30 on 6JAN and the price was $190. It wasn't worth it and it was not the quoted price. Told them I didn't want the room. They said 'read the contract'. Complained via E-mail to Booking.com After a number of E-mail exchanges...

It does not provide transportation. So, you walk or ask the receptionist at the front desk to call a taxi. Cost 10 PESO one way. Rooms are...
