    Comfortable, quiet stay in La Candelaria area

    Bed was very comfortable, Shower was luxurious. Breakfast was pretty good and available till 10 :) Floorboards were very creaky and room had little to no storage space but had cable tv. Took a couple days to feel at home in the room. Loved the rooftop terrace. Staff was very nice and helpful. Hostel was near many bars, restaurants and interesting things. I just wouldnt recommend going out on a Sunday night, many things in the neighborhood are closed and we didnt feel safe. However within the Casa we felt perfectly safe.

    Stayed 5 nights in Apr 2018
