“Welcoming and lovely hostel ”
We had a great time at El Viajero, the staff are very friendly and the place is well equipped with a cosy lounge and nice dining area as well as a good kitchen. The beds are comfy and the showers are...
Perfect location, good breakfast, clean rooms and beds. But unique problem was haven’t a “no quiet time”! Somebody is singing and makes noising after 01:00 am. And nobody alerts him about quiet time!!

Ferryturismo's catamaran (1hr) goes daily. Immigration is also at the port.• Bus is another option.
