  • The airport shuttle left before 10pm, and I had to take a taxi. Then, the hostal stuff didn't want to aacept a credit card for 11$ bill abd I had to get cash in the middle of the night... Not cool. Besides that, there are not enough lockers and bathrooms.

  • High standar hostel! The security was good. It was a gate in front of the door and the receptionist had to lock the quest in. The add about the hostel had a few mistakes. They wrote about free breakfast and free transfer to the airport, something that made us choose this hostel. There were no breakfast at all, and the last transfer to the airport was 11.30 a.m. If the shuttle schedule fits you, you get a free taxi strait to the airport door!

  • The staff is not as friendly as in other hostels I have experienced so far. It's definitely a big hostel, which is close to the airport. Their airport shuttle is great. Definitely could be cleaner. Just stayed there for one night, because my flight was at 6 am. It was ok for one night

  • We stayed here the day we arrived and the day we left. It's so conveniently close to the airport and bus station. Great smoothie place right across the street and lots of "comida tipica" restaurants nearby.

  • A good, clean, safe place to stay, convenient to the airport. Excellent view from the open-air, top floor bar.
