Nice and clean room with a large bathroom, and a nice "normal" shower (hot water and cold water knobs) instead of the "suicide showers" usually found in Central America. The shared kitchen is well equipped and comfortable to use. The air conditioning worked well and...More

Please read all poor reviews and the owner’s responses and you will see his lack of maturity. Wouldn’t recommend staying here. There are much nicer places with owners who aren’t looking for a quick buck. The owner is the only person in the area who...More

At the first impression it seems a nice place with good rooms and a big common space with a kitchen, although the owner Mark is really a boss. If you're not American he will treat you differently (and in a really rude way) and you...More
