Fun place to stay. Gets a little bit loud so not the best place to get a ton of sleep. The owner was very friendly and very helpful. One tiny issue was that we gave them a load of laundry and all our clothes came back dyed yellow.


Great hostel with a lot of amenities, common areas, bar, pool, lots of activities, very social place.


Great pool that is in the sunshine for most of the day, nice bar and quite sociable. However, showers aren't the best and the restaurant in the hostel is closed for a large part of the day.

Hi, thanks for your comments. We agree, our showers could be better, we are trying to improve this. We'll be happy to give you a free night if you come back this way. We only close the kitchen from 2.30pm to 6pm when most people have already eaten and are outside doing their day trips and visiting the city centre. We appreciate your feedback.


Great spacious location with affordable prices. Movie/game room, pool, bar etc. great opportunities to meet other travelers. Minor drawback was that it was a bit farther from the city center (5000 CP$ cab ride).


Not much to complain about the hostel, very friendly staff, nice bar and pool. It's just the city itself that sucks.... But if you just want to relax or if you need a place to stay for tayrona (free storage) it's perfect!!


Awesome Hostel! The staff there were really helpful! Great facilities, drinks and food!

Thanks Kelli, was a pleasure having you here mate :)


Best hostel of 3 months in South America. Had heard good things about this place through the grapevine and my first impression on arriving was what's all the hype about. But When you settle in you will love it. So many people were there for weeks just chilling out. It's like a resort in a way. Great cheap food cooked there. Relaxed Nice staff. House has so much character Spacious dorms. Nice pool. Best movie room I've seen. Just a really nice vibe over all. I could have stayed for months!
