    Jose was absolutely great. Welcomed us very kindly and made sure we feel comfortable at all times. Place itself is what you can expect from a hostel. Cleanliness can definitely be improved but covid measures were in place. Breakfast was also a nice touch. Staff is just fantastic and super helpful and friendly.
