The other kitchen is located on the main floor in the back courtyard. There are various tables to eat at, which are surrounded by lush gardens, pottery, and mosaic artwork.

During your stay at the hostel, the owner, Eduardo, will go out of his way to assist you with organizing whatever you wish to do.
