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.
