Awesome hostel with nice and friendly stuff. I was so sad i had to leave because it felt a bit like home, even though we were far.. I loooved the balcony. Met many nice people there and just nice to relax (my friend and i were not in the main house but in the other one. The only thing is the water in the shower.. either it was hot or cold and there was only a little bit of water, depending on the shower. But very clean and they even made our beds every single day. Oh and they have hammocks and really nice, green decoration and aquariums. Breakfast is included and actually really good!! Loved it and i will come back. Gracias chicas. Voy a volver lo mas pronto possible ♡
