Not my style of hostel - young drunk English kids & music blaring through the whole hostel until 6am. May be another travellers paradise with a pool & big bar. Paying 26,000 I expect a seat on the toilet.


Rooftop bar has a great view and good for a few beers at night. Pool was great as it can get pretty warm in Taganga.


Great design of hostel, the fridge doesn't work and the kitchen continuously stunk because of it. Nice staff. Tried to check out one morning before going to Tayrona. Then staff on in the morning couldn't take our payment or work the computers to work out the bill. Had to leave passports and return at a later date. Very inconvenient. I was asked to front the cash for two others that never returned just cos they were in my room. Organisation and maintenance and some care required


Bathrooms need improving, sinks in all the rooms I saw were hanging off the wall. Kitchen is filthy with ants crawling all over the counter. Bathrooms not cleaned every day.other hostels manage to stay clean through the wat shortages so this is not an excuse.
