No party hostel at all, the nice terrace is always empty. had the wirdest situation with their staff in one year of travelling. the mexican girl should defenetly be fired!


A party hostel so is good if you want to have some drinks and meet some people but often can come across as a big lacking in other areas, kitchen is nice and nice air conditioned computer room, also has tours that can be booked although a bit more pricey than they should be.


Good hostel to stay in, good atmosphere and great roof top bar. Downsides- some of the staff are fairly useless and don't know answers to your questions and no air con in the rooms which in this heat is fairly hard to sleep in.


Great hostel with swimming pool, good WiFi and party!


Good location and potential for good atmosphere, however the staff receptionist (mainly female Mexican receptionist) is very rude and makes all people feel unwelcome and that she is doing you a favour to stay there even when you've booked and paid deposit. Many of the people who stayed there complained about this and I hope Media Luna take this seriously as it has put me off wanting to stay there again in the future.

Wednesday night party that they are famous for was very disappointing


Best hostel to meet people and have a nice party night.


Media Luna is a PARTY hostel- for very young folks. The kids at the bar upstairs looked around 15-18 years old, with the occasional young 20s. Partied loudly until 4 am- if this is what you are looking for, good spot- but if you need to sleep at all before 4 am, bring ear plugs or find somewhere else!

No air con in the dorms, despite the price No hot water. Once the cleaning staff closed both bathroom at the same time for cleaning and they take forever. One morning none of the computers were working. its nearly impossible to sleep due to the noise in the bar.


Great environment. You can always meet cool people. Great place.

A great location


Great fun busy place! Lots of hang out areas, wonderful staff, free pancake breakfast, huge communal kitchen. Great place to link up with fellow travelers!


Awesome party hostel! Had an absolute blast here. Lots of parties and great people. Facilities were good, only downside is the top bunks are very high and difficult to get into while drunk.


Well located hostel with polite staff. The common area was very quiet when I was there, but I think the big nights are Wednesday and Saturday for them. The unusually high bunks and giant taps in the rooms were quite charming, and the roof bar looked fun although it wasn't open on my dates.


Stayed there for 3 night. Great location, did enjoy my stay. The only critasim would be not air con in room when it can get quite hot.


The building itself was great, but that's where the positive comments stop. We have travelled all over South America and the staff in this hostel were by far the worst. They were so unhelpful and they made you felt like an inconvience going to talk to them. We went across the road to mamalena to book all our tours and buses, this seemed like a much nicer place. Also there was no air con in the rooms...you wouldn't believe how hot it gets. Atmosphere was pretty poor for a so called "party hosteL"


Great location and party atmosphere. However it is very expensive for a relatively standard hostel


I stayed at Média Luna in march 2014. This is a very butifull place. Litle swiming pool and the intérieur court is very nice! Great place to meet travelers and make party at night. If you want to sleep at night, brings hear plugs. The Showers are REALY dirty and the forring staf there kind of snob or rude. The Colombian staf is nice. There is no air con in the rooms and it's realy to hot in the rooms. The plastic bracelet "all-include kind" is anoying. The bar and the roof are great.
