Our patio is the perfect spot to be and meet fellow travelers by chilling in our Pool, getting fresh juices, beer and cocktails at our Bar. We want our guests to have fun and socialize with others and of course, enjoy good deep music.

    Incredible hosts, great place to stay, and they help organize tours to the desert and everything. Couldn’t recommend this place more. You just simply have to stay here while you’re in Riohacha :)

    One of the best hostel I stayed in! The kitchen was very well equipped and incredibly clean, I've never seen that level of cleanliness in a hostel before. Every bed has a curtain, light, power outlet and a fan, which is great when you're hot at night but bring your ear plugs, if there's multiple fans running it obviously comes with some noise. Breakfast was toast, fruits, cereal and good coffee and presented with love. The vibes were very friendly, people helped each other out with travel advice

    I spent three nights and really enjoyed them! The staff are super friendly and nice, and there are two friendly and adorable cats (one is a very playful kitten). Everything was really clean and well kept, and the kitchen had enough pots, knives, plates, cutting boards, etc. to work in easily (this is not true of all hostels). The central patio area is a lovely place to relax and read, and the location is very good - near the market, banks, and beach. Highly recommended!

    I highly recommend staying in this great Hostel with amazingly welcoming and helpful staff! Free breakfast, very comfy and private beds (curtains,plug,light and fan), Super equipted kitchen, which has an (functional!) Oven! Small pool, happy hour, pub crawls, laundry service, free luggage storage! The owners and the staff (spec.

    Casa Profunda is a lovely little hostel, with good vibes and friendly, helpful staff. It's in a great location - close to the beach and everything else you need. I was surprised by how much I liked Riohacha too - it's got some charm to it!
