First hostel in Sudamerica to treat me to eggs for brekky (scrambled!) actually retreated to this hostel from the F&F which was freezing cold. This hostel had a nice warm fire place and a fair few people staying even though it's the low season :)

Very nice hostel in a good location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was quite cold when I was there but they had a fire place where you could warm up a little. Good atmosphere, close to everything and very clean.

I stayed in el Viajero in November 2015 for 5 nights and the overall experience was positive. It's well located, close to beaches, a grocery store and the dowtown area.The shared area is very nice; a big open space ideal to meet new people. The staff was nice (for the most part) and the general vibe is relaxed and welcoming....

I spent 3 nights here and developed a love hate relationship with it. One on hand is incredibly social, just hanging out in the lounge area you meet people from all over the world but that same lounge can be quite noisy at night when you are trying sleep. The lounge has plenty of seating both indoor and outdoor and...

I stayed here for a little over 10 days and it was one of the better hostels I have stayed in, during my trip. It's cozy, it's comfortable and quiet. The people working there are chill and friendly and the crowd that stayed in the hostel was great. Overall a very pleasant stay.

The fact that it's not pretty is the least of its problems. In the dormitory where I was with my boyfriend it was really dark even with the light on so we needed to use headlamps to walk around. The fungus under the shower was omnipresent. The room in general was tiny. It's also hard to figure out who works...

“Don't get the rooms near the kitchen. Try to get a private room.”

“the private rooms are the best of course, but if you dont want to spend a lot of money choose the 4 bed dorms as the difference in price with the 6 bed dorms is not much but you'll be much more comfortable for sure!”
