Busy place, mainly young students with a mix of colombians and foreign backpackers. Almost no english spoken. Try to stay on the quiter 2nd floor which overlooks the patio. Nice roof chill area with hammocks although it was unstaffed when i stayed there.


All people that work in El Hostal de Jackie was very helpful, but we tried to had our breakfast at 9:31 AM and we couldn't because it was only until 9:30. The hostel is very organized, with a clean swimming pool and nice decorations. The bar on the roof was enjoyable, with a happy hour at the beggining of the night. Our room did not have air conditioner and we suffer because of that. The bathroom was only cleaned in the morning and was located side by side the reception, so it was not cool.


Well run hostel, everybody from owner to cleaning ladies are very friendly. Good value for money. Highly recommended.


I arrived with a reservation and it was overbooked. The staff apologized but made no effort to help me find another place. Just sent me on my way. Probably best to double check before you arrive.
