Pros: InandBasic is a Hostel with a quiet and safe location. The place is fairly clean and easy to get to. You get pancake and pineapple or banana for breakfast and you have a kitchen you can use from 8 Am till 1030 PM.
Cons: If like me you like to be free to do things your way, this is not the place. This place does not have a 24/7 attendant even though it is advertised as being open 24 hours. They have a house rule that is not mentioned on the website. According to it, everyone can go out till 10 PM. My family and I learned it the hard way. One night, the host went to sleep just a little before 10 PM and we had to knock for 10 min before they came out to let us out. Another night, the host told me that he was too tired to wake up to let me in and that if I went out, I needed to stay out till 5 AM!
While security is great, I can tell you that it gets annoying to have to be buzzed in and out, it's like you have to ask for permission to go out!
Also, be careful about signing up for excursions with them, they only want you to pay cash! But if you insist to pay by creadit card, well, they will find a way to make it happen...
Finally, for a place that advertises that it offers laundry services, IT DOES NOT HAVE AN IRON my friends! So iron all your clothes and roll them up!
Last, do not let the website picture fool you, the place no longer looks that way: the room for which I selected this particular hostel was nothing like what I was presented with :( sad story.
Well, that's life. I hope you have better experience!
Have a safe trip.
Me quede algunos dias en este hostel sencillo pero bien situado (cerca de San Pedro). El personal es muy simpatico y te puede ayudar por cualquiera cosa. Tiene todo lo que necesitamos para descansar y tambien un ambiente feliz donde podemos desayunar y compartir nuestras experiencias con otras personas viajando.
