The Experience

We are a kind of a new hostel, we've been around for two years so far. But more than a hostel they call us a second home, we are three owners Lucas, Gonzalo and Pedro, we do most of the work, but now we have started using this webpage in order to get the help we need and it has worked out great so far we've met some wonderful people that have stayed with us andd are trully welcome to come back whenever they'd like. It's an awesome experience.

Dear Zoraida! We already miss you! We hope you come back! a hug!


I had a really complicated experience at Gnomo Hostel. I was stolen IN the hostel twice, and the owners didn't do nothing about it!!!! First of all it was my cellphone, in a party in the hostel. It was probably someone who lived there or a friend of someone who did. Then, it was my PURSE! With everything in it!!! And while all the staff was trying to help me calling the police and stuff, the owners were just doing nothing about it!!!! I had to left the place 5 days before the time I was supposed to stay there. I would never recommend this hostel. It is not a safe place at all!!!!



It's a nice place to be ready to parties and the location is great. The hosts was very kind with me and If you don't care so much about infrastructure and is outgoing would be a nice experience to you.
