It's well worth the price paid for a private room and the breakfast is quite decent. It's a great place in terms of atmosphere as well. The condition of the facilities are far from the best but everything is functioning, and the hot water is strong. Wifi all over. I'd go back.

I can not say more good things about Gaudys...from the moment I arrived to the minute I left. I was here for unexpected eye surgery and needed a place quick to stay for a few nights. What I's not a 'party' kind of hostel. I needed and wanted a chill environment to prepare for surgery and post surgery and this was perfect. I cannot say enough WONDERFUL things about Fernando, Nancho and everyone else on staff. Super friendly, helpful, and fun! I will return to Gaudy's FOR SURE!!!!!!
