    Es un hostal excelente, probablemente el mejor en todo Riohacha, muy limpio, bonito, seguro, cerca a la zona turística. El personal fue muy amable, la terraza es genial para comer y pasar el rato.

    Awesome hostel and super clean. The only downside I found was that the staff does not speak English at all, which could be useful with all the foreign travelers. Other than that, definitely one of the best hostel I've stayed in!

    I had a wonderful time at Bona Vida. The two ladies that work in the front (especially the one with the super nice personality) made a huge impact on my stay. They have a really cool rooftop bar that has a great vibe and is only getting better. The pool is picturesque and the food pretty good! Overall, an awesome stay!

    Located close to the beach and the plaza. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. The rooms and terrace is clean. The staff is helpful. However, the swimming pool water was not clean. I would recommend it. I had a great stay there.

    Very chill. The pool and rooftop are great places to hang out. It was a nice getaway, close to the bar. The storage under the bed was a bit tricky to open. I would recommend the deluxe or superior room because it has air conditioning. Overall, would definetely go back to stay there!

    It is clase to the beach. Our room did not have air conditioning and was very hot. When I asked the receptionist for an extra fan she acted annoyed. There is a nice pool to keep cool.
