Llegar al hostel fue de las mejores experiencias que he tenido, el equipo es una gran familia, siempre amables y accesibles. Me hicieron sentir en casa en todo momento. Meche y Francisco me recibieron como parte de su equipo desde el primer minuto. El lugar es muy tranquilo, comodo y agradable, hice muchos amigos internacionales y vivi experiencias maravillosas con los tours que me gane gracias a mi labor dentro del hostel. A la hora del desayuno se hace una convivencia familiar y las noches de bohemia en el garden mis favoritas. Muchas gracias el hostel. Volvere pronto.
