well well what can i say. I had 3 travelers recommend this place, there stay stretching back as much as 5-7 years ago. This place is about 20yrs old, it has some serious history in there and you can see that when you visit the font desk/bar. The staff is pretty hipster and they are as helpful as they can be. you really get every kind of traveler in here. old people, young people, crazy people, dusty backpackers, quiet German kids, and the mix of aussie/brits looking to get crunk at the bar.

security was too tight, and the hostel had ZERO atmosphere. some of the staff was super nice, some were meh. there is no chillout area, no bar, no restaurant, the rooms are like 3-4 floors up these tiny stairs. the wifi was garbage. only thing good is the location next to the station. please choose another place there are MUCH better options.

I really did not like this hostel at all. The staff was nice, but the people that book here are just young party kids that can't spell culture. Both hostels were simply TOO big to create any kind of atmosphere. the drinks were expensive and you were not aloud to bring in outside alcohol. the security was so tight they wouldn't even let my friend visit in the lobby. the Wifi was so s$$$ you couldn't get it anywhere but the first floor, and the dishwasher threw away my food before I was finished.

If you are looking for the best place to stay in this little Oasis town, I would say BA is the place to be. Although it is a bit on the pricey side, the tours they combine with the price are great (do the dunebugging on the night sunset time not the earlier one), the pisco tour was dope, the food was good, and the atmosphere was super cool. nice pool, clean facilities. Definetely recommend

This hostel is pretty basic, but the location is great. right next to the grocery and in the middle of Old Town. the staff was sweet, and then beds were fine. Nothing fancy, but all around good :)

Only thing I didn't like about this hostel was that it was about a 30min walk from the ocean. Other than that, the staff was awesome, the beds were super nice, they also offer a cheap hammock option once you are there. The pool was clean and the beers were cheap. The grocery is also right down the road and they help you organize alot of activites from the front desk. If you are cool with using the cheap buses, which you should be, then this is a great option.

I wouldn't necessarily say that this is the best located hostel, however it's not terrible, about a 20-30min walk from the Pablado bar area, and it's in a really safe neighborhood. It's about 10min from the train station & grocery. BUT this hostel is amazing if you want: an awesome clean hot shower, really good wifi, the most comfortable blankets and beds in Medellin, and a kind staff. the kitchen is also nice and the beers are cheap.

This Hostel is one of my favorites in Central America. It's freaking beautiful, has a clean awesome pool to play volleyball, the staff is fantastic, the rooms are clean (however mine spelled of urine the WHOLE time), the beds are clean, and the activities are plenty. They also have AMAZING family dinners everynight with great food. its abouta 5minute boat ride from town, thank god, and about a 2min boat ride from the blue lizard bar. There is also sloths all over the place!

I didn't like this hostel because they never answered the phone or their email, and also because it's across the lake, not on Flores Island, which is where all the fun is. As far as staff, cleanliness, and the facilities, everything was fine.

It's super chill, built around a huge tree in a quite part of town. The kitchen is great, and it's very clean. Great terrace atmosphere too. you will fall in love with the place. cheers!

all the bad comments on this thread are just a bunch of winey babies, don't listen to them. This is a party hostel, that being said like any other party hostel, you know what your getting yourself into. The showers get pretty hot (most of the time), the wifi works great around the office area, the free breakfast and coffee is GREAT! every night is a party, and the staff is terrific. I didn't find it that dirty or nasty at all. It's a freaking hostel, get over it

God the amazing things I could say about this place! It's a bit out of the way in the Playa Car area, but its the cutest little B&B. if you are looking for a more private room and quiet part of town, with an amazing helpful staff, great breakfast that comes with it, and good wifi, this is the place. One afternoon we awoke too late for breakfast and Florina the manager literally made us a special combo plate just for us. As well as awoke in the middle of the night to help us in our room. book it.

This hostel was really awesome i actually spent a week here and go to know the staff very well. It's literally across the street from The British Museum and a ten minute walk from the train station and 5 minute walk from the grocery. Its fifteen from the main square and bars. The staff are super nice and laid-back. they gave you lockers under bed and they had the biggest dvd collection ever

ok so...this is like the Walmart of Hostels. Not for the solo rugged party traveler. this is for groups of girls and people that don't really want to party and go to the Red Light every Night. its so big its hard to get to know people. but the facilities are super clean, good wifi everywhere. nice showers/bathrooms. good food & bar. staff are nice. but it just doesn't have a lot of character. its safe though and its across the street from Vondelpark . great for families.

I stayed in this hostel based on a review in the New York Times. It's a nice hostel, very modern and hip with nice facilities and nice kitchen. the breakfast is ok. I think this place is way too expensive for what it offers. you can stay at St. Christopher's and have a better time. the beds and bathrooms were nice, the location is ok. close to subway. cool bars nearby. but its not a good place for drinking, partying, and being social. the atmosphere is sub par

this has the best location in Madrid, seriously. you can walk anywhere or take the train which is close. its in the main shopping district. close to restaurants bars and markets. the atmosphere is ok, it has potential to be social, but at night you have to be really wuiet. there is no bar or restuarant. they have special nights like sangria tuesday. they have great internet , tons of computers, nice facilities and bathrooms. small but good lockers.

so this was one of my favorite hostels i ever stayed in.

Its basically 2 big rooms with beds. No real perks . but you get to know your roomates really closely and become best friends. clean bathrooms. hot water. and a kitchen and fridge. what else do you need. awesome loc
