Nice hostel, great staff. Only complaint was that 2 out of the 3 nights we were there, the neighbours BLASTED their music until 6 a.m. and none of us could sleep, and when I asked if the staff could ask the neighbours to turn it down, they told me they couldn't do anything about it.


Really nice hostels, pretty patio and breakfast area, really good value for a dormitroy with A/C (definitely worth it!) The staff and very friendly and helpful, and lent me snorkel masks although there was no much to see. The breakfast could have been more generous - half a cup of coffee, two thin slices of toast and what seemed to be half a scrambled egg. But apart from that it was a great place to stay!


i have been travelling for many years, and this place was the best value for money. a big area for plenty of relax time, the staff were very helpful and friendly. a great place to meet like minded travellers.the atmosphere was one of total relax, had all the information i needed for sightseeing in the area and Colombia.
