I dearly enjoyed staying in the family-run hotel. All staff was eager to help and very knowledgable about bus connections, tours and general advice. They booked lots of tours and buses for me in advance; talking to other travellers I realised that the other places couldn't even provide the most simple bus info not to speak of a ticket! The...

Stayed for 4 nights. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. We booked several tours and onward transport and everything went smoothly. Paid $20USD per night for a double room which was good value. Shared bathroom - small but does the job. The common area / kitchen (not great) is right outside bedrooms so at times it was noisy but was always...

My partner and I visited for three days in March, we had a lovely time. The weather was more chilly than most of the guests expected, but we found the coolness comfortable. We arranged times for zip-lining, the night tour and a day off to visit the Santa Elena cloud forest. The morning when we were supposed to head out...

This is a chilled hostel with staff who can organise all you need. It has a beautiful view from the common area and kitchen and overall there is a comfortable, chilled vibe. Most of the rooms have windows that lead onto the general balcony, so its not very private in that sense.

Me and 2 friends enjoyed our stay here, everything was very clean, the communal area (and the view!) were great. The only problem was that we had booked on hostelworld a few weeks before but when we turned up it seemed they hadn't received our booking. The staff were very helpful though and luckily they did have space for us...
