Spin the wheel. Everyone is a winner... :)


This place is good for one night to party. Otherwise, if you're unlucky enough to get the rooms near the bar you will not have good sleep. The place could be cleaner.


Lovely building & sociable atmosphere ( bar, pool table....loud music) but too big to be really friendly. Negative points: rooms without A/C have absolutly USELESS fans that fail to move air around (even worse if you are on the bottom bunk) and very soft sponge mattress so you sink into them and sweat.....Bathrooms had no vents, so humid with mosquitos. Should install personal fans lke other hostels in the area. eg Masaya which is cleaner & more comfortable at just slightly more per night.

Wonderful hostel, great location, and friendly staff!


Great people to have fun with. Awesome staff. The brand new terrace is amazing.


The perfect hostel!!!!


Great bar with a fantastically energetic barman called Brandon! Really enjoyed our stay here. The showers and the bathrooms etc were very clean. Lovely atmosphere here. Would recommend this hostel to any backpacker.


One of a kind place, felt to me like we were transported to the hanging gardens of Babylon. Our first night a travelling band played on the rooftop...an absolutely magical experience. The staff was friendly and helpful all throughout our stay. We were only there one night before the lost city trek and one night after to recover, and I wish we could have stayed longer to meet more of the interesting characters passing through. Very cool atmosphere, so it's no wonder it attracts a great bunch.


awesome atmosphere awesome hostel.

Perfect location. The staff was very friendly. Our private room was nice, (incl. private bathroom).


Great toga party!


Best place ever!


It was a very well run hostel. The staff were very helpful and there was connections with other companies for doing activities. Rooms were clean and spacious and there was a great roof top terrace to sit in the evenings. However, if you want to have a good nights sleep do not stay Friday to Sunday as the place turns into a bit of a frat house with toga parties and the bar staying open with load music until 3am.


Great building with cool inner courtyards, a pool and nice rooftop terrace. Fab bar with good, cheap food. Staff were a little disorganised and they played loud music quite late but overall good place to stay and great value for money.


Nearly perfect hostel. Buzz in security, friendly staff, decent beds, free towels, plenty of showers and banos, restaurant, awesome bar, pool and unreal rooftop patio. Only thing that's lacking is the kitchen facilities. Staff were so helpful with all my questions about buses, tayrona, lost city, etc. would highly recommend!
