This is a very nice hostel with a social vibe. Located in the middle of Bellavista its a great place to stay if you like to go out.

The hostel is clean and has sufficient bathrooms. The wifi works great (not so in the reception, but in the back of the hostel). It is a relaxed place with lots of hang around areas and the staff is friendly. The breakfast is OK and sometimes there is free lunch. Location is also good inside the middle of Bellavista.
