Hostal Ambar provides very affordable accommodation in a good location near the centre of Santa Cruz. Given the price, it would be unfair to expect more than is provided. What is important is that the rooms and shared facilities are clean and that the proprietor was always very helpful.

Don't bother to book a room with a bathroom - as the only showers that have hot water are the showers off of reception.
Also - bring your earplugs - traffic noise is very loud.
Hostal Ambar provides very affordable accommodation in a good location near the centre of Santa Cruz. Given the price, it would be unfair to expect more than is provided. What is important is that the rooms and shared facilities are clean and that the proprietor was always very helpful. The one disappointment was the stagnant water collecting in the empty swimming pool which is a potential breeding spot for mosquitos.
