    First backpacking trip ever and first trip out of the states ever. Great staff and i made great friends. Rooftop terrace is amazing. Clean bathrooms and clean beds. Super scorching hot water careful ! But this location is away from A bunch of traffic and super close to Monsterrat mount. Joy and Oscar are the most beautiful souls i have met. I hope to come visit them again 💛

    More of a party hostel, which is not what we typically go for, but with coronavirus we didn't have a lot of options and I'm very happy we ended up at this one. Staff and volunteers are very nice. The facility is beautiful! We loved the rooftop deck which had incredible views over the city. We were in a private room which was very clean and tastefully decorated. Bathrooms were decent. Breakfast and dinner were amazing! They have several events throughout the week. Very pleased with our stay.

    We are a couple in our 50's and we loved the hostel. The staff were exceptional, friendly and went above and beyond. We enjoyed the nightly dinners as it was a great way to meet people. The bartenders were top notch and fun. We booked a private room and it was absolutely charming.

    There were a lot of events thrown that helped people socialise more. The staff/volunteers were enthusiastic and friendly and the salsa dancing class plus free shots were an obvious highlight. Great location close to montserrate and the heart of La Candelaria. My only slight issue is that the hostel was quite small really and I would have preffered a larger hostel with more people staying there as I love meeting new people.

    As a solo female traveler I felt really comfortable staying here which was really important to me! The hostel was very sociable and fun which made it a great place to land at first. I stayed in the all women's dorm and it was pretty noisy as the main office is right next to it. The breakfast is simple but fun to meet other people while eating outside on the top floor. Overall it the hostel is beautiful with plants and amazing views. Also, the location is great to hang out in La Candelería.

    Secure hostel with informative staff. There is a nice balanced vibe for people who want to chill and for people who want to socialise. WiFi is good and breakfast is provided, would definitely recommend.
