After over a year of backpacking in South America, Mandala Hostel is HANDS DOWN my favorite hostel ever! Reserve it now!! The staff is AMAZING and I consider many of them (especially the owner Emilie) to be among my dearest friends. Sophie is super down to earth, Sergio is very caring, Julio puts on great music as the unofficial hostel DJ, and Beto is like a joyful father for the hostel. I reserved 2 nights and ended up staying for 2 weeks the first time and I came back again a month later!! :D
No soap in the bathrooms :/
Love the location and the staff are really nice
could used a lil upgrade on the bathroom, some of the bunk beds are not comfortable I was lucky it was empty and I pick my own bed so I was able to get a comfy one
The pro’s: the view from the room, the personnel that was super nice and friendly
The con’s: to use the shared bathroom, we had to go through a dorm and disturb people sleeping there. We did not feel comfortable with this at all as for us, it was unfair to the dorm guests. The room is very basic, almost rustic and there is a small window that communicates with another dorm hidden by a curtain so that you don’t have privacy at all in the double room. There is an event or concert (there is a bar downstairs under your windows) almost every night so ignore you are an early sleeper, it is difficult to sleep.
The hostel has the best food! Staff are really lovely and helpful. It's central to the area. Love the art work around the hostel.
The 4 bed dorm is a little claustrophobic.
