    Great value for money, especially considering that the delicious breakfast is free. Great location and a cool pool and a rooftop area. The dorms are great and the cat is adorable. The pool could be cleaner, there were a lot of hairs in it.

    Nice hostel to relax in after a stay in the desert! Every bed had its own personal fan which was nice but the rooms air-conditioning was stuck on 27 which made the whole room warm. Nonetheless, the bathrooms were clean, beds comfy & staff nice (Spanish speaking only)

    I really liked the hostel and the food, loved that breakfast is included. Although it was weird that everything was off at 12 pm and we couldn’t hang out by the pool after midnight. Also there was a lot of families which I honestly wasn’t expecting, there was a mom with her son in a dorm and she was snoring so bad. It was weird. Other than that I liked it and it was close to the beach so love the location.

    Good location, nice rooftop, staff friendly and helpful. The kitchen is super narrow and the fridge not that clean tough. It’s ok for the price, good hostel for one night.

    It was a nice place to stay for a night before you go on a tour to La Guajira y Punta de Gallinas. In the shared rooms some of the beds are very comfortable while others not so much. My bed was really uncomfortable and deformed.

    It's an ok place where to spend one night, however there are better and cleaner hostels in Rioacha. The pool in this hostel was green, really dirty and the rooms were not that nice either.

    Absolutely 0 atmosphere, no place to hang out except the rooftop but nothing much happens there. Mainly local people, didn’t meet a lot of travelers. Wouldn’t go back but to Riohacha in general, you’re probably stopping there to go to the desert so go there asap and don’t waste time in Riohacha there’s nothing to do/see.
