  • The place is dark, dirty! There was no water at all in the faucet, no control to the air conditioning. The facilities are really poor, the pillows are defenitily not usable, There was also a terrible mustiness in the air. I am usually genereous on my ratings, but people form this property really need to work on many points to improve their place.

  • I just spent 1 night at the Hostal Portal. From it I was able to visit many places of the city on foot. But then again, I'm a long distance walker. Within a short walk from it are many restaurant and eateries of all sorts and prices. It is located close to fairly large soccer stadium which houses a gym (didn't have time to check it out). The staff is friendly and helpful. My room was large & clean, The bed was comfortable. Good internet connection. Not pretty or charming, but adequate.
