    Best hostel in Encarnación Great breakfast. I had the dorm room to myself, so I am quite happy :) Area for camping. Great outside space, with a pool table. Staff quite helpful and friendly. Great location, 3 min from bus station, and 5 min from the beach. I would stay again.

    Staff is really helpful and friendly. Great location! San Jose beach is only a couple of blocks away and the bus station as well. Dorms are quite tiny and beds were a bit soft for me, but not much to worry for a couple of days! Overall, is a great place to stay!

    the location could not be better, and the rooms even had aircon! Staff was really helpful with local information. They'll own towels if you need one. There's a place to do laundry outside, and then you think you wash dries in a few hours since it is so hot. Not much in the way of atmosphere, or meeting other travelers, but I'm not sure if anyone else was staying there when I was there. Everyone I saw seems to work there. So probably not something the hostel can help.

    Very cozy place close to the bus station and the beach with all the cafes and restaurants. Quite clean, comfortable, with nice backyard to sit in the evening. And very friendly stuff. If you'll be lucky enough the coolest Colombian administrator will still be working there. Don't hesitate to ask him anything.

    Nice hostel, but the rooms were quite small and the mattresses were a little thin. Not many people staying there when we were there and Encarnación is quite a sleepy town.

    We stayed in the small six bed dorm which was not a squeeze because it was only the two of us and had security lockers. The shower was warm, the kitchen basic but adequate and the location close to the bus station. Not a remarkable hostel but all we needed.

    Ok place, walkable distance from the bus station. Clean, safe and well located... but not much to do there or around... good to cut the trip but not a big deal over all... the hostel and the city....
