    A really nice hostel to stay in. They give all the information you need to know to visit la Guajira on your own. Staff is super helpful. I was sick when I was there and they were here to care for me. Breakfast is delicious, you should go for the pancakes!

    The social area was a little small I thought. Other than that everything else was excellent. Each bed had its own curtain, light, fan, power socket and shelf as well as a storage locker. The breakfast options were pancakes, eggs on toast or a fruit bowl. I was also able to book a tour to Cabo de la Vela and Punta Gallina from here too

    Very nice hostel, not a big social area but comfy beds with curtains, fans, lights and plugs: basically everything you need! Good breakfast (not as much the burger for dinner) and free water refils Shower is an additional 3000 if you don't stay the night on the way back from desert tours Bath mats would help a lot to keep bathrooms clean

    Note that this is the hostel where there is no breakfast. It seems a bit more quit then the other one. But facilities are great (socket at every bed and in the lockers) except for the kitchen, here there is hardly things to cook.

    Positive: individual fans, nice enough breakfast, lockers with socket inside, drinking water, aircon in room, central location, curtains on bunks, special deals at various local businesses, they kept my bag for me while I was on Guajira tour ( I returned for a night afterwards) Not so positive: fairly unfriendly staff, hot and stuffy cramped communal area, 2 bathrooms /toilets shared between 14 guests +1-4 staff. Potentially problematic!

    The hostel was the smaller more chilled of the two. It lacked a bit of atmosphere. Tasty breakfast. Great location near to the beach. Staff were friendly. Wi-fi worked well. Nice that each bed had a fan, privacy curtain, shelf, light and dual power outlet. Lots of board games available.
