This place was pretty bad. Cold showers, really thin walls, a dog that barked all day long. PRO: The guy in the morning was great, I showed up at 8am after a night bus from Sucre and he cleaned a room for me so i could sleep. The night lady on the other hand, couldn't be bothered when i asked her if my laundry was ready at 7pm, she said 8 or 9, even though the guy said "listo en la tarde." I then overheard her mimicking me to her colleagues. Just bad. Would not stay again or ever recommend.

I had an amazing stay at Bells Hostel. The owner, Gueko Moraes is one of those people in your travels that you will never forget. His positive vibe and genuine care for his guests is not to be surpassed. The hostel is awesomely located, you can almost jump in the water from the lounge area. My fellow travelers staying there were exactly the types of travelers you hope to meet. There's a cheap "por kilo" restaurant and a cool bar called Elvis Bar around the corner. Gueko, you're the best!!!

Fernando at the front desk was great. Rooms were clean and quiet and it was great to have AC. You can make use of the pool at the hostel up the street which is also nice. Easy walk from the bus station. Breakfast could be better.

It was an excellent place to stay for meeting people, but the shared bathrooms need a lot of improvement. My room had paint peeling from the ceiling and dropping on the bed. That being said, the room is dirt cheap and the staff who work there are totally amazing. Met a lot of really cool people on the rooftop terrace. I would stay there again.

Pros: Breakfast was real good. Rooms and house was super clean and the room was cleaned daily. The owner was very nice and helpful. Cons: Its a hike to the center, at least 20 minutes. The house is in a neighborhood with a lot of dogs, and they bark ALL the time. Had to wear headphones to sleep because the backdoor neighbor's dog barked or whimpered every 5 seconds for 20 hours a day. Maybe the rooms in the front are better.

Great staff, I booked a single and ended up getting a double for no extra charge. The room had a really high ceiling and the ceiling fan was awesome! Very comfortable stay. Rooftop is also a really cool place to meet people or just chill and read a book. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

This hostel was SO excellent I don't even know where to start. The hostel itself is a really cool building with a relaxed dining room and even more relaxed rooftop lounge area. It is a really comfortable place to be in, which has a lot to do with the staff. The team there is and amazing group to be around, as far as helping with questions, or just hanging out. I was lucky enough to go their NYE party. I highly recommend this hostel, it is by far the best I've ever stayed at.
