I really liked this place. It was just a few minutes from the beach, and the staff there was extraordinarily nice. The lady who runs it even made me breakfast one morning, an omelette with bread and a fruit salad. Nice courtyard in the middle as well, and the AC worked great.

I really liked the layout and location of this hotel. Sometimes the staff was great, but other times they were a bit condescending. The place was probably 10-15% overpriced. I might stay here again, but I would also look at other options.

The place was about a fifteen-minute walk from the main part of the beach. The area around the hotel is a little dicey, but the staff at the hotel was very mindful about security. Overall the staff was great, and the price was excellent considering the cost of many of the hotels in the area. I would stay there again.

Laid back place, which is a great value for the money. I had a private room with a hot shower, AC, and a balcony. The walk is about fifteen minutes from the port, or you can take a cab for $1. The lady who runs the place is super friendly, and it was kept very clean.

Really liked the staff at this place. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The only problem was that all the rooms were basically attached to the lobby or the movie room. There was always light through my window and noise at my door.

This place was okay, but really the only friendly and helpful staff member was Ale. The hostel is not in a great neighborhood as proven by the fact that I was robbed just outside the entrance. Not their fault, but you should probably know that. It was also a little old, but at least they had a pool. Next time I will probably stay somewhere else.

We had a pretty icy reception when we came in. Then we were given room one, which had no shades on a window that gets light from several sources. Loud all night, including those who worked in reception who kept singing songs. I would not stay here again.

This place was okay, but I found out the hard way that the restaurant is the priority rather than the hotel. They did construction on the hotel all night from 10 p.m. to morning two times. When I complained, they just started Saturday morning at five a.m. This is also not a great place to meet people since the restaurant downstairs is often filled with diners rather than guests of the hotel. It was okay, but I would not stay here next time. At least this place has Johnny, who is awesome.

Some staff members were nice, and some were not. Not one of them had any idea how the bus systems worked, so don't ask them since they will get you lost every time. They really didn't know too much about the tours they recommended as well.

I liked this hostel overall. The restaurant and bar were good, and the staff was very friendly. However, while I was there, they had huge problems with the water. Giving people one hour a day to shower was pretty nuts. I think the situation could have been handled better.

The staff here was pretty good, and Barbara was particularly awesome. The terrace and the view from it were both amazing. Clean place, very modern. Good location on Pio Nono. Would have been nice if the BBQ worked. Nobody could seem to get the TV to work either.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments and choosing Rado Hostel. We have explained to all our staff how to configure the TV and where the spare gas is so this does not happen again.

Even though this place was good, it did not live up to the high rankings on Hostelworld. When I booked, it was at 94%, which is at least 10% higher than it should be. In the summer it is probably nice with a pool and hammock, but in the winter it doesn't do anyone too much good. The staff ranged from great to so-so. There was only one computer, the kitchen was often crowded, and my duvet cover smelled like a heavily used pair of boxer shorts. I would probably not stay here on my next visit.

View Property Reply

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us as much as nearly all our guests do. We feel the hostel is a lovely space in winter, well heated, comfy lounges/communal spaces, a real fire. I am not too sure what heavily used boxer shorts smell like but we would have been happy to change your duvet if you asked us. We wash them frequently and they all have covers that we try to change after every guest so we are a little surprised by this. Safe Travels

Quite possibly the best hostel I have ever been to. The staff members have all been there at least nine years each, and they genuinely seem to like meeting travelers. Annie is especially awesome--super friendly, and she loves working there. The view is spectacular, the place is clean and pretty quiet, and the other travelers were fun as well. If you have a problem with this place, the problem is with you!

The staff here is great, though I certainly did not think so upon arrival. When I could not find where to go to take the shuttle and missed it, they told me that "I should have tried harder." Overall they were quite good though. The Internet here is a problem since they have no where near enough computers available. The cleanliness is great: every day they clean the room and make your beds, even in a dorm.

The staff here was pretty good, especially the lady who helps with breakfast, and the location was great. However, my room smelled like moldy carpet, and they would only accept cash. Overall the hostel is pretty run down, and I would guess that there are better options available.

Miguel could not have been any nicer. He picked me up at the bus station, found out how I could go fishing, and then walked me to the bus for Lago Tota at 7 a.m. on a Sunday. Not too far away from the main attractions on Carrera 11. You're about forty minutes from Lago Tota, and a lot of people ride their bikes up there on the weekends. Great value for the money.

Why does this hostel have a high rating? For the most part I felt like I was crashing a high school party. One girl who worked at the desk never looked up from texting while she was talking to me, and forget about asking her for things to do. This is the only hostel I have ever been to where I was not offered a tour of the place--I was just given my keys with a snarl. The only bright spot was the German woman who gave me a restaurant recommendation. My private room had no AC.

Jessica is the true superstar employee of this place. She runs the joint, and she is incredibly nice. The other guys just kind of act like you're sitting in their living room, and they wish you weren't. The fishing pole is totally unusable, and the kayak can take you right down to a stream that is dumping something unpleasant into the water. The bikes are also broken down. However, the view is probably the best from a hostel in Guatapé, and the kitchen facilities are good.

I would definitely recommend this place. I wanted to go fishing one day, so the owner actually drove me forty-five minutes out of Panama City at 7:30 on a Sunday morning. He wanted to help me negotiate a price, so I went fishing with some other people for $40. It was almost a four-hour trip on the Panama Canal. The door guy is also great, very friendly and helpful.

I was travel weary and needed a break--that's just what I got. You can hike in Lanjaron, or you can take the many buses to other nearby towns and hike. For 20 Euros a night I had my own bed, tv, bath, and balcony. The balcony even had a great view of the nearby hills and valleys. To top it all off, the owner speaks fluent English and was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend staying here.
