Absolutely loved this hostel. Amazing in every why. Fantastic staff, great rooms, great spot, great value for money. Awesome place


There was only one bathroom but with the hostel not being full this wasn't an issue. They had a pool table, card games which was good. Breakfast was good toast and cereal and fruit. Cheap laundry facilities too.


Had a great couple of days there! The location was perfect for us and the staff were extremely helpful regarding things to do in the area and where to move onto next! Would recommend it to anyone!

Perfect location, staff very helpful, rooms very nice and kitchen was great.


The guests were definitely male dominated when we went, but security was good so I wasn't that worried about it. the male staff dude was also really helpful about telling us stuff to do and just being a generally friendly dude. Overall, while it isn't the cheapest in south america standards, Caballo loco was probably one of the nicer hostels I have stayed at. It was really clean, and had a beautiful mural of a indigenous man smoking a pipe and the smoke turning into a horse. Def recommend

Great Hostel! Owners and staff are fantastic. Common room is huge and great for meeting others. Location is awesome as well.


Overall a good place to stay. We were only there for two nights but had everything required with nice open communal area and helpful staff. Met some great people. The only real gripe was the low number of showers/toilets for, at times, quite a number of people staying there, plus being a little cold at times though we were in winter. Staff helped us out booking onward buses which was great, good breakfast and kitchen facilities.
