awesome campus and friendly people
It's a tropical Hostel/school so you get what you expect. Heat, cold showers. In need of repair but completely comfortable for the hostel traveler. Great spaces. Equipped kitchen daily activities on campus. Wish we could have stayed longer. Walking distance to everything you need.

Sin agua caliente sin wifi
Hostel si agua caliente. Es una academia de español por lo que las zonas comunes se utilizan de aulas. Difícil descansar. No hay wifi en las habitaciones. Solo lo recomendaría para quienes quieran ir a clases
