all the staff were super nice, except perhaps for the older lady. She seems quite grumpy, not sure she should be in the hospitality industry!
Great location, great communal areas and vibes, cleaning ladies are a big grumpy. Thats the only downside! Mot much really.
Awesome place, awesome location, just quite pricey for us but that was christmas week so cant be avoided.
One of our favourite hostels in all of south america! Great community vibes, many dinners/drinks arranged by hostel, the main host Lucas is a legend. Very helpful, always full of advice and tips, even personally dropped us in his car to our bus connection. Great location in heart of trendy bar area (vila madalena). Quirky colorful hostel. Highly recommend.
Best hostel we have stayed in yet in all of south america. Staff are super helpful, pool and kitchen/bar areas are amazing. Highly recommend.
The host is so nice! Great cakes in the morning! Also very convenient to have all tours booked right out of the hostel reception. Would recommend.
Hosts are so friendly and helpful! Most indepth city intro we have had in all of south america!
everything in kitchen was locked! basically useless
Staff super friendly. Nice kitchen facilities.
Hostel is cool, bright and quirky, staff are super helpful and nice. BUT skanky people stay here, season volunteers, all very poor, we had random things stolen from us (old shoes?! bottle opener, tupperware, 2min noodles). As they all know one another its very clicky and hard to break in to their social scene. Cheapest hostel in cuzco we could find (which is clearly why we bumped into these people) so you get what you pay for. My advice to the hostel owners: raise prices, evict these clients.
Our second time there. Staff are awesome! (Main reason we came back)
mancora can get a tad on a grubby side. this place is blis! high on a hil over looking it all. Mean to stay for one night, ended up staying 4.
Staff are SUPER friendly and helpful Quite a sociable hostel, hammocks, tv room etc. perfect location in old town (we know as its second time to cartagena, first time we were in a dodgey area (gethsemane) felt pretty unsafe at night. No such problems here. Enjoy!
This place was honestly one of the best hostels we have yet hit in south america. Secure, bright, clean, great vibes (lots of great communal areas), and the main manager is super friendly and laid back- nothing is a problem for him. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Keiran.

This hostel was really quite perfect!. Good location (5 mins walk from square), really nice and trustworthy staff, brightly painted walls etc, great rooftop terrace area to watch sunset over mountains. We also did their 1day tour of colca canyon - great! And well priced. Highly recommend Keiran. Australia.

great location. great terrace! awesome staff.
great location... beds were a little uncomfortable though and the rooms were quite hot - no a/c. otherwise great.
more a 4* hotel than a hostel.... so it was nice to be spoilt.... reasonable pricing too - considering practically the entire town was booked out for la tomatina... it was a good choice.
great hostel - but its 14 km out of YPRES town.... thats the only downside, but it didnt prove a problem as the hostel staff couriered us around as much as we wanted! - great service!
only downside: when we were there, there was only 1 toilet in the whole place working! rarely any toilet paper. otherwise an amazing hostel with a great vibe and funky bar area.
