We work very hard to have a very respectful and peaceful vibe without the crazy drunken atmosphere offered at other hostels in the island. Our goal is to make you feel like you own a home in the Caribbean and provide you with great social atmosphere, as well as giving you the opportunity to have a good sleep after a busy day of sightseeing the island, we have a strict quiet time of 11.59 PM, but we apply the 80-20 rule, which means that if 80% of the people staying at the hostel want to stay up partying then we move the quiet time accordingly.

After you book with us.
-You will receive a welcome email, in it there'll be a link to a Whatsapp group we created for guest to help coordinate events and activities.
-Send us your arrival time or flight number, that way we can match you with people arriving on the same flights and you can share a taxi.
-You will receive a self check in email, we suggest you fill all the information that way when you arrive to the hostel you check-in time will be faster.

Legal Stuff.
-Registro Nacional de Turismo: RNT29218
-The Blue Almond hostel is committed to enforce Law # 679 of 2001 in which prevents and counteracts the sexual and/or commercial exploitation of underage minors. View House Rules

    I couldn’t rate the owner highly enough organised everything for us and even came out for a drink with us, he gave us an understanding of San Andres. Only slight issue was security to get into the room, but we never felt unsafe. Absolutely loved our stay and would definitely recommend staying here to anyone coming to San Andres.

    Blue Almond has a great relaxing atmosphere with good facilities in a great location. Juan, Jessica and Alejandro were always on hand to help with any questions we had and helping to organise local trips diving. Rooms were spacious and clean with good security lockers.

    A classic 'book two nights but extend for a week' hostel. Juan creates an amazing atmosphere that makes it easy to speak to and make plans with other guests. Can't recommend enough, one of my favourite hostels.

    Great location, close to supermarket, bus stop and airport. Alejandro was great, helped us rent scooters and plan our days on the island. Our room (ground floor) was weird as you had to put your arm through the window to open the door from the inside so didn’t feel very secure.

    We enjoyed our stay at Blue Almond so much that we extended by an additional four nights. The two owners Juan and Alejandro were always there to offer help, information or just a general chat. One of the best things about the hostel is the vending machine which stocks everything from cheap beers to padlocks. You can also book a number of tours through the hostel at reasonable prices. Highly recommend.
