    Had an awesome stay here. Even with the 27 bed dorm, you still have privacy. Great breakfast, wifi and local trips you can book through the hostel. Would recommend Pozo Azul waterfall trip with Jerry, was our favourite part of the stay!

    We had a great stay at the Bodhi hostel, sadly only for 1 night. I'm so glad we added the detour to our trip! The 27 person room was surprisingly quiet and comfortable! The morning yoga session was absolutely incredible. Great staff all around!

    Came here with my mom, who experienced a hostel for the first time ever! She loved it, and so did I. Really easy to get to, staff are great, breakfast was awesome, and the place is super cute!

    Perfectly located in Valle to visit all the tourist attractions and there is a supermarket right across the street. You can cool well in the kitchen and many chillout areas make it easy to socialize with other travelers. I came solo and made some good friends here and don’t be shocked by a 27-bed dorm! Everyone has been very respectful and I had a good sleep there. Free breakfast is super good and staff always has a smile on the face. In case you don’t meet people you can book tours.

    It was a great base to do all the hiking and the staff were incredible! If there’s one thing, they might want to reconsider 27 beds in one room. If you’re not being woken up by someone who wants to do the 5am hike, you’re the person tip toeing at 5am, hoping you don’t wake up too many people. Overall, great stay and would do it again.

    WiFi was out for almost the whole time I was there, including the full day/night before I left. This was during all of the closures for coronavirus. Staff just said that happens sometimes and nothing could be fixed. Because of this I couldn’t get online to cancel my next hostel reservation due to the changing plans, resulting in a $50 charge. WiFi is so important for planning purposes so this was really frustrating. Besides that this hostel was a phenomenal experience

    Pretty good hostel, nice relaxing area in the back and there’s free yoga/Pilates some mornings and a good free breakfast. Dorm is 27 people so it’s a bit cramped.. good hostel if you just want a bed to sleep in.

    This hostel is definitely not as bad as some of the reviews make out in my opinion (I did not notice a smell for example) however, the dorm is massive and very cramped, being on the 3rd bunk did feel too high to be comfortable and they don’t help with any of the tours unless you can get 6 people signed up so I wasn’t able to do a lot of the stuff I wanted and left el Valle early. There was no social atmosphere where I was there either. Needs some TLC!
