The hostal was absolutely lovely!! Beautiful colors, lovely lobby, very nice rooms! The hostal staff was wonderful - even when we woke them up in the middle of the night when we arrived...and at 4am when we departed! Highly recommend this hostal!!

Don't Judge a Book by It's Cover

Pros: Location and pleasant owners/staff.
Cons: Just about everything. Not a comfortable place to stay.
Location: Plaza SanBlas is centrally located in the old city. Within walking distance there are tons of restaurants, stores of all kinds, and other activities
Great location, charming exterior and very courteous staff. But there it ends. Room was tiny which was O.K. Closet consisted of 2 hooks and 1 hanger. Queen sized bed was really a double. Very noisy overlooking the interior courtyard and jack hammering on roof renovation went on all the time. Worst of all, there is was no hot water! They certainly tried to remedy the problem, but we couldn't even get it to luke warm. One small light bulb in the middle of the ceiling was it for illumination. Forget about reading in bed. Cleanliness was average or slightly above. Again, the owners couldn't have been nicer, which makes it hard to recommend choosing another hotel.

What a GREAT find!

Posted Sep 18, 2013
Pros: I liked the traditional feel to the place; not re-manufactured chic. The place was as sincere as the hostel, which I found refreshing,
Cons: I might offer a bit of tea varieties at morning in the lobby as there was hot water but only lemon herb tea. A variety might do well to improve relat
Location: The Hostel sits on a beautiful square, which at night an morning was quiet and unassuming. As I only used the stop for an overnight sleep, no report
Arrived much later than expected, but they stood at the door to welcome me. What a lovely charming place to spend a night or a weekend. The Hostel is on the square, and staff were more than helpful in collecting my bags and gear from the taxi at the curb at the base of the hill (no vehicles allowed). Front desk spoke a bit of English, so no problems of communications at all. Arranged for a taxi in the morning to the North Terminal Bus station, called and reserved a seat on the bus for me, and even let them know I had limited Spanish skills. All very professional, courteous and friendly. The room was more than adequate, private bathroom, and linens and towels plentiful. Charming little place overall.

Great staff, good rooms, good location

Our stay here was quite pleasant. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The location is good,but be aware that it is attached to a church so you get early bells on Sunday. Blanketed in wifi but had some trouble connecting. I would be happy to stay here again.

Excellent service in central location

Excellent. Staff were very helpful with info on local transport links and sights. The hostel itself is a most charming building full of character.
