Anicha Hostel is an important restored colonial house, where the wooden floors, mosaics, windows and balconies of the colonial era describe the history of the former headquarters of the Ministry of Education. We started this project, with the idea of having a space where the culture is protagonist. For this reason our walls are invaded by art, with an atmosphere of different music expressions, which combined with the good energy of the travellers contribute to the place made and created for them, leaving a clear message of sharing, learning and teaching the best of one.

A vegan breakfast can be enjoyed at the property, oatmeal with fruits, or egg with bread the vegetarian option.
**Important note: the kitchen at Anicha is vegetarian, please we ask that you don't cook or store meat in the hostel.**
