I'm not sure what sort of feedback you have had from other people regarding Hostal Massachusetts, but my boyfriend and I stayed there on the 31st of August 2000 and were disgusted. The place is a dump. It is in a very good location in the centre and that's what attracted us to it. But having been, I would strongly recommend that people steer well clear of the place.
I certainly won't be staying in a hostal again, as we later found plenty of GOOD QUALITY hotels for a slightly higher price.
