  • Perfect hostel experience. All the women who worked there, Lenis, Jeni, Lili and Vicenta, were incredibly friendly, fun and helpful. This hostel is always full of fun because they are always playing great music and dancing and laughing. They also gave us great advice about beaches, trasportation, etc and always made us feel taken care of. The room to sleep in is air conditioned, and the wifi works great. The kitchen was great and the balcony is beautiful to sit out on and eat or chat! 10/10

  • This was my absolute worse hostel experience. I ended up staying at a different hostel on my last night even though I had already paid here. This hostel is rundown, and the dorm was super hot despite the air conditioning. The bathroom was not clean and did not appear to be for guests. El viajero is about a block away from this one, and even though it's about $3 more, the difference in experience is worth every single bit of the extra money. I've stayed in $7 hostels that are way better than this

  • It was not what i was expecting. The staff is very kind. They don't speak any word english and they cannot help you around for the tourist stuff. They don't have a map of the old town or whatever. They even couldnt help us to find a bus to taganga. Another hostel helped out with that. The airco in the room is great. Atmosphere is good with the nice balconies at the street to see the beautiful houses.

  • Very nice staff, the kitchen seems a bit untidy at times and a bit short on equipment. In general good hostel, would recommend it.
