Good 6.0
The hostal is in great location and for Cop prices is okey; but the room was really dirty. We found a lot of long hairs in our bed and carpet, lamp, doors were full of past and dirt spots. It’s seems to be usual, but we paid for having a bathroom in the room and it was a head shower in the bathroom ceiling. Showering was indeed an experience. The environment is great for young people who wants to socialice tho.
