    Was a little slow when we visited (due to COVID) but we still had a great time enjoying the pool, playing jenga, and hanging out with the staff. Food and cocktails are delicious. Easy access to Tayrona, the hostel is just a 5 minute walk from the bus stop.

    the place was pretty much dead due to the pandemic. the bathroom in our room smelt pretty badly and as far as the location you can get a way better place right next to park de los novios with a lot more action and activities. most of the staff were new so they weren't very informed about park hours and what is the best way to do the tours for tayrona. which are the best beaches to visit and so on. We later found out the best way is through boats from the different beaches. much more economical.

    No care for customer experience. Location can be somewhat dangerous at night with stray dogs. Poor administration.
