The following reviews were written by minihostels members who stayed at the hostel. Please help your fellow travelers by indicating whether a review was helpful to you.
Casa 579 is a relaxing place to stay. The rooms are lovely, well decorated and comfortable. There is lovely balcony with hammocks and a nice terrace with sun-loungers. The lounge area is spacious and perfect for a lazy day. A bit away from the town, it offers a restful undisturbed sleep. The staff were very attentive yet just leave us to do our thing.
