Dirty, cold, very disappointing stay. The bathroom was particularly bad - the toilet leaked, leaving water all over the floor, as well as mud and hair. There was no toilet roll or soap in the bathroom and the bins were never emptied. The kitchen was dirty and had no washing-up liquid, meaning most of the kitchen utensils were greasy. There...

The hostel is cheap (35pen for a private room) and still, for that you have a hotel with great terasse, not far from the center (7min by foot), a GREAT Wifi and a very helpful staff. The kitchen is maybe too simple and the common bathroom a little aged but still acceptable (clean). We came here several times (between each...

Average hostel in the city center, close to the museums and plazas, with good wi-fi and a nice common area on the rooftop. The staff is quite rude, and the owner is plain mean: my first night there was really cold, and on the next morning I asked for an extra blanket; the owner looked around her desk for a...

We really liked this hostal. Maria, the staff, was very friendly and welcoming. The hostal is centrally located, has a nice rooftop and court yard, a guest kitchen and cheap but good rooms. Excellent value for money!

The staff is realy nice, and very hepfull! Nice rooftop terrace but need to be a litle bit re-organized. Small kitchen not very usefull!

The location is pretty good, not far from organisations running tours, a small shop, bakery and laundrette and only a ten minute walk from the main square. The rooftop terrace is pretty cool but there's not much else to commend it. The bathrooms weren't clean, and missing a toilet seat. The kitchen was cramped, with no cleaning stuff and the...

The Hostel has a really nice rooftop terrace. The rooms are spacious with own bathroom, but basic. The owner is friendly and helpful. We also booked with her our 3 day canyon tour and enjoyed it. The hostel is good located, close to the center. It also has a communal kitchen, but it's small and little shabby. All in all...

Unfortunately the lock on my door broke, and another guest ended up shoulder barging it half off its hinges for me to be able to access my things. As it was 11pm, slept with bed against door for safety. Wasn't fixed the next day, despite promises - room door didn't close, let along lock for 2 days. I wasn't able...

Inexpensive and very clean! Was in a dorm but only shared room for 1 of the 4 nights despite their being several groups of travelers staying. Huge beds (no bunk-beds which is nice), access to kitchen and awesome rooftop terrace! Not party oriented, it's a very relaxed and comfortable place. Staff very friendly as well. By far the best value...

We arrived early in the morning (~6 AM) at another hostel which didn't have room for us, the owner is the brother of Maria (the owner of La Posada del Virrey) who brought us over and introduced us. Maria welcomed us to spend time on the beautiful rooftop before showing us our room. AT the end of our stay, she...
