Exceptionally clean hostel, big kitchen to cook, great DVD room


Great place to chill out around the pool for a few days and catch your breath. Great hostel


Stayed here for only one night. Staff were really helpful and attentive. Good showers, good wifi, a really nice pool and a decent breakfast. The negatives would be the location, not very near the centre at all but the hostel itself is nice and has a nice little bar to meet other travellers in. It's also a bit pricey but think Santa Cruz in general is quite expensive so probably average for the location.


I was booked in to stay 2 nights and ended up staying 4! This hostel was really comfortable and the facilities great! The only down point was the fact that because they had a bar, no alcohol was allowed to be brought in. Prices weren't cheap! It's a really chilled hostel and I could have stayed longer just to sit by the pool and read. There isn't loads to do in Santa Cruz, but many things just outside. Nick's Adventure tours are highly recommended and make sure you don't miss Samaipata!


Great hostel. Lots of fun, great facilities and easy to make friends. The only problem is that it is a bit far away from the city center


Probably is a nice hostel but we were put in a private room in a separate building across the road. So totally isolated from rest of hostel. Outside shower that was freezing cold and no wifi. Every time wanted anything had to cross road to the main hostel. Staff ok but not over friendly.


Really loved! The Staff is really helpful and always were willing to provide support.


Great place. Staff is helpful with tours and transportation and the breakfast and bar (cheap drinks and good food) are great as there is not much close. Rooms are clean and it's a great place to meet other travelers.


Nice hostel with a pool. You can even get scrambled or fried eggs with breakfast. Good location, took me about 15-20 minutes to get to the downtown/ cafe/ bar/ restaurant area on foot. The hostel had a lot of options for tours/ excursions. Staff helped out on a lot of my questions as well.


Great, basic hostel. Nothing extraordinary but has hot showers, clean rooms, friendly staff, and a nice common area where it is easy to meet people. Would stay again.


Very nice hostel with friendly staff, really good location with only being 15 minutes walk to the bus terminal. Taxis on request and also they can order pizza for you to be delivered to the hostel. Good vibe and very clean!


On the whole a good hostel, but too many rules for me to recommend it. For example, you cannot bring in your own alcohol and the cheapest available at the bar is not that cheap. Staff were helpful and friendly and the eggs for breakfast were good. Overpriced for Bolivia.


Really enjoyed our stay here, hostel was very well run. Good atmosphere, great place to meet people, great breakfast too!


Great place to stay while in Santa Cruz.

good place to stay, but they sell things expensive like drinks and foods. You buy instant noodle outside is only 2BS, they sell to you 10Bs and u have to cook yourself. Mojito, super small plastic cup is 30Bs.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, we are glad you like our hostel and thanks for stay with us. Just to clarify we use only plastic cups because the bar is next to the pool and they are 300ml size and the price of 30Bs is for two mojitos at the happy hour. Maybe this little price will increase soon because the current inflation we have in Bolivia. Noodles for 2Bs? :o)


HOT showers were excellent! Not much to do in Santa Cruz and was meant to be a short stop, we stayed two extra nights here. Played football at the local park (5mins walk) a couple of days with others staying here. Really friendly and welcoming. Felt safe all the time we were there, no problems! The pool is cold, although that didn't stop us from going in everyday!! Highly recommend this hostel!


Excellent breakfast, excellent hot showers, pool area is really good though unfortunately it rained the whole time I was there. It's a bit on the pricey side, and the location isn't ideal, about a 20 minute walk to the centre. One slight gripe: they have handy little shelves for each bed with a light and power socket, but the socket faces downwards, This means if you use an adaptor (common) it won't stay in the socket! And there are no alternate power points. Wifi was very slow but this is BO


Cold showers in the provate room area. Thoughtful staff about this. Location is close to fast food restaurants and cinema and about a 20min walk to the centre of town. Well equipped kitchen and nearby market and stores. We were memeber of HI but because we didn't book directly, we did not get to use our discount


Super friendly staff, super clean and monder with a nice pool and breakfast!
