    This hostel was incredible! I stayed in a private room and it was big and spacious. I loved the hammock on my balcony. The whole place was very cool and the atmosphere was great. The food and the cocktails were so good! Definitely would stay again!

    The staff is great and the place is beautiful. Food is excellent! The only downside is the beach was mostly washed away 4 months ago, still beautiful sunset. The tubing is the biggest draw and is a real value. I can't brag enough on the front desk staff. 1st class service 👌

    Great place to chillax in the heart of Palomino (walking distance to plenty of resturants/bars). The pool is a plus, and you are ~1min walk to the beach, the nicer beaches are ~15min walk. Wifi - is extremely spotty/slow/comes&goes (not good for remote work). No use of a kitchen. Free parking (reserve a spot since the parking lot is small) available. The staff was great.

    amazing hostel, one of the best ones I have stayed at in Colombia. Atmosphere was definitely fun, this is a party hostel, if you want to relax this isn't the best place for that. Beach is a few steps away and the food was decent, but a lot of restaurants right outside the hostel. Rooms are clean and well kept, def will stay here again in the future!

    I really enjoyed the stay, the staff were friendly & helpful, pool & facilities overall were great, but was disappointed to learn no guest kitchen to cook in. Things I would suggest to implement or improve upon are the following: 1) Not everyone wants to stay up all night & party; therefore, implement quiet hours from midnight to 7am. 2) Improve the room AC either with another or bigger capacity unit. It was way too warm and the simple fact is that no one can sleep or rest well in a warm room.

    The room I stayed in was dark, the toilet was dirty, and staff didn't clean it during my stay. Bunkbeds do not count with with light or outlets to charge cellphone. The rest of the hotel is very pretty which does not coincide with such a dark room.

    Very Good

    Pros - the staff were nice and it was nice to have air conditioning as Palomino is hot, nice pool and very close to the beach, good location overall, food was also good but no kitchen Cons - very loud, dorms are close to the party area so people seem to think it is ok to party in the dorms. It might be better normally but when I went it was full of weekend vacationers in large groups who just wanted to get drunk all day so it was hard to meet people as a single traveller and even harder to sleep

    worst hostel we stayed in The room was dirty, we asked to clean but they didnt They told me to sleep in an occupied bed. After that i was moved to a bed full of sand. There were toothbrushes that were there for already a month, so they never clean. The reception is unhelpful and will give you high rates for attractions. I got stung by a scorpio in the room and had to go the hospital, the staff tried to prevent me from going to a hospital even tho there wasn't any medical authority around
