Clean rooms are centered around a sunny courtyard with a large eating area. The dorms feature single beds instead of bunks, but are a bit cramped. Private rooms are more spacious, and all have comfortable beds piled with plenty of blankets for chilly nights.
There are only three shared bathrooms for the hostel, so we sometimes had to wait to use them. All were clean and had hot water.
Rates include breakfast and 30 minutes of Internet next door OR use of a small but well-equipped kitchen. You can use the washing machine for 10Q. Just talk to Olimpia. As well as keeping Hostel Don Diego clean and its travelers well-fed, Olimpia is becoming somewhat of a local hero in the indigenous civil rights movement for filing a complaint against a bar that refused her entry because of her indigenous dress.
The outside door was only sometimes locked, but rooms lock and we felt safe coming and going. The walk from town is shorter and better-lit than that to Casa Argentina.
Private rooms cost 45Q per person per night, and a spot in a four-bed dorm is 35Q. Slightly reduced weekly and monthly rates, with or without kitchen use, are also available.
Take 7a Calle west from the park. Don Diego is on the right, just past an arch over the street and across from Blue Angel Video Cafe.
