Formerly known as La Casa del Carmen, this cheery guesthouse is ideal for budget travelers that want something a bit more adult than a hostel. The simple tile-floored rooms vary in size—one has bunk beds and sleeps four, while another is more of a suite with a kitchen. All are kept clean, painted in bright colors, and lightened up with artwork found in local markets. There are cheaper rates for those willing to share a bathroom. The location is good, in a residential area one block from Vía España and a short cab ride to El Cangrejo. A plant-filled patio with hammocks and lounge chairs beside the breakfast area is a fine place to bring a book or exchange travel tales.
