Very good hostel, clean, organized. Santa Cruz doesn't have much to do, so the Hostel is a good place to rest.

Having suffered a long train and an awful hostel the previous two nights, Jodanga was such a relief - the place is awesome. The cleanliness and quality of the place are the biggest selling points. The staff were friendly enough and the location is pretty good. The pool was closed when we arrived but after a good clean looked epic. The bar was lively, the barman was friendly and overall the atmosphere was good. Great sleep and great breakfast - recommended!!

Didn't stay long enough to get a proper gauge on the atmosphere, but I can say that this hostel is pretty well set up in terms of facilities. It has a pool, good lounge area and large dorms.

Best hostel that I've stayed in in Bolivia! Stayed here at the beginning and at the end of my Bolivia trip. Its a 5 min taxi ride from the bus station, or 15-20 mins walk. In Santa Cruz there's not much to see but the hostel made up for that with their swimming pool and organized BBQ nights and happy hours. Great atmosphere! And awesome breakfast with eggs, fruit, you name it. Awesome! Beds are great, showers toilets, lockers, all good.

If you are coming to Santa Cruz you must stay here! The hostel is immaculate and so clean, you get an amazing free breakfast, the rooms are spacious, the staff is friendly, it's in a great location, the WiFi works great, they have a great happy hour. It's crazy how clean this hostel is. It's a great hostel to spend a day or two just resting and relaxing too. I do wish the dorms had hooks to hang our towels, but not a deal breaker. Seriously my 4 nights here were perfect.

I had a great stay here! Maybe the cleanest hostal I have ever stayed at. Also the breakfast was delicious. Only downside was that the location wasn't super central.

Us traveling as a couple we feared it was a Big party rave and it kind of was, however ! If you book a double bed they put you on the otherwise side of the street, thereby you only go to party land and great swimmingpool whenever you feel like it. Also This must be the cleanest hostel of South America, it was spotless. Regards Denmark

Nice hostel to meet people and drink by the pool! Good when you travel by yourself and don't want to feel alone

Pros - great hostel, always clean and organized, feels great and alive, nice pool, good TV room w/a lot of movies (mostly in English!). The BBQ night was awesome, great party in the hostel later. Cons - though you get value for your money, it is a lot of money. this hostel is not for the ones who travel on budget, feels like they are trying to charge you extra for things I'm not used to as a backpacker(30 BOB for bus ticket through them, 25 BOB for extra breakfast, expensive water and cigaretes)

Pros- Good clean and spacious hostel with pool. Nice atmosphere, nice breakfast. Cons- Very expensive and feels like only care for your money (you know these ones...) When we were there, 50-60% of the guests got sick (some even had salmonella!). Pretty weird and spooky..

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear Guest, we are glad you enjoyed our hostel. We just want to clarify only 4 ppl got sick and not 50% of the hostel. Three of them where a group of friends who ate street food. Future guests: to avoid these problems is better to don't drink tap water in Bolivia unless you have a strong stomach, also be careful with non cooked vegetables. Street food is cheap but some times could be unhealthy too. :o)

Nice hostel, lovely staff (especially the male bar tender), good facilities and clean rooms, kitchen, pool and common areas. Was a bit expensive and the book exchange was a joke! Give 2 books for 1 book in return. I got food poisoning whilst I was staying here but I'm not certain how I got it and I didn't eat any street food. I would although recommend this place to others.
