  • Is it quiet at night?

    We are a downtown hostel on the corner of two roads, some nights it is quiet and some nights not so much. We have had guests that say compared to the rural areas with coqui frogs and chickens it was not bad downtown. I suggest guests travel with earplugs regardless where they stay.
