Area: San Pedro SulaMy sister Angela is a honduranian singer and founded the hostel in 2005. At this time there were no hostels in San Pedro Sula. She realized that there were a lot of backpackers coming to San Pedro Sula and opened the first hostel here. She moved to Tegucigalpa and since three years I, Loret, am managing the hostel. We have 8 dorms with 8 beds each. But there is also the option to have a private room. We have a spacious kitchen, a living room with tv and wifi.
