I stayed in a private room which was nice. The room was pretty basic but comfortable, spacious, had AC and a comfortable bed. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. there is an area in the middle of the hostel that you can chill and socialize with people. Locations is 5 minutes walk to the old town. Staff were helpful and nice. they play very good music all day in the common area. There is also a bar and restaurant.
we stayed in a double bed room with private bathroom. the waterbasin had a leak and water was dropping on your feet while washing your hands. and the toilet was dirty, when we arrived. the room itself was very airless and there are no windows in the room. room was small and dark. staff was very unfriendly and seemed to be bored.
Nice hostel... not enough common space.. perfect location
Friendly and helpful staff. In a good location. Overall good hostel.
I really liked this hostel, the rooms were clean, A/c was on 24/7 the breakfast was pretty good and the tours were easy to book there. The location is also great, the only problem I had was I found one of the staff members to be quite unhelpful, and act like any request was asking too much. Aside from that I really enjoyed my stay here.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. It also had one of the best locations. I had a great time there.
The location is okay but the showers were cold, it was freezing in the dorms (too much A/C) it was dirty and always VERY loud (a bar downstairs, 2 bars in the street), there is no rules so people just smoke and drink in the dorms. No security at all, anyone can enter the hostel and get into any room without any problem, actually, random people were entering our room to use our bathroom, a guy was even doing coke in our bathroom !! The only good thing was the girl at the reception, she was great
This is a party hostel, bar played music till 2am every night. Friendly helpful staff, good location, good breakfast, clean, wifi usable but slow. The hostel can book tours for you, I did the Mud volcano which was good fun, unique and the guide was in English and Spanish. I did one of the boat tours the next day but this was not in English so was very hard to follow and made the trip less enjoyable, so don't assume all tours are in English. Overall a nice stay.
Good place to stay. Not as much of a party hostel as Media Luna but it is probably a better to stay here and then party at Media Luna (as Media Luna is opposite this hostel)! Close to most of the main attractions and the staff were generally pretty helpful.
The Staff is very rude. There is a lot of noise everyday until 2 or 3 am....then noise starts agains at 7 am...no sleep at all.

A really cool hostel. Location seemed a little rough at first , but it's safe and the area doesn't charge like they do in centro, which is a ten min walk away. Staff are very helpful, and very friendly. Loved Colombia
staff where great. the hostel isnt a party hostel but it is sooo noisy. all the rooms face right where people hang around and even the quiter conversations you can hear perfectly from your room. also if your sleeping ontop of the bar then good luck. they play the music soo loud we went for a beer in there on the last night and we couldnt evem hear ourselfs talk. not good for a tiny empty bar
Hostel was great, short walk from main walled part of Old Town, to the castle and Muelle Turistica to get boats to Playa Blanca. Pancake breakfast yummy, although if you are up and leaving early check there will be breakfast from 7am as it says on the info as on the first day we were disappointed as no breakfast was ready. People are coming back from the beach so bathrooms get a bit grubby but no more so than usual. Staff really really helpful and friendly.
Good hostel. Very loud at night. Located in a lively party district.
