It was an amazing experience, you can practice Spanish and English. The host María answer your questions quickly and she helps you with all your doubts about the city and the hostel. The boss is very nice and people at the bar are really nice too, they are very friendly, they make you feel like you are in home. The place is very beautiful, specially the pool.
