5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Very good! Staff kind and helpful!

The rooms and the building were very nice and met the best standards of a hostal and dorm. The staff could not be nicer, more cooperative and helpful. There is room for improvement with the internet connection, a problem that happens here and there in Colombia. This will probably be done soon, as all the infrastructure is improving at a fast pace.
