    A lovely hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. Isabella and the others held me book tours, buses and gave me all the information I needed for my stay. Cooling off in the pool, sipping beers and chatting to other guests was fabulous. Not too many people when I was there, but still had a great atmosphere. The netflix room has lots of space, the table tennis and pool table is a nice touch, as well as a good choice menu for food. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Will be staying again!

    I absolutely loved staying at drop bear! I was initially planning to stay for one night but extended for three as I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Personnel is very friendly and the common space great.

    Staff at time were friendly however the Australian owner voiced his personal and offensive opinions about types of guests that are not welcome (such as me.. hippies ... ) on posters around the hostel in an attempt to be humourous. Swimming pool, and Netflix room were a nice touch. Netflix didn't work in private bedroom and shower temperature was temperamental. WiFi was adequate. Location not central ... Good local restaurant few doors down serving cheap local food.

    Very Good

    Staff are amazing here, really good for helping you sort out your trip. It could be a party hostel, but while I was there, everyone was so knackered from previous excursions--so it was nice to chill out by the pool. Nice food. Only drawback, no ladders on the bunks (seems a thing in Colombia) and I had a bit of a tumble half asleep getting out. Good base for the North of Colombia

    We were a group of senior citizens. This hostel is definitely more appropriate to a younger crowd.

    If you like to party and are on a budget I recommend this hostel. It could be improved by getting Shower heads and hot water. Are room was never cleaned the entire time we were there.

    Do not stay, avoid at all costs. Facilities 10000 years old with terrible showers, smelly kitchen and everything just looking like it’s all been puked on. Nice pool but terrible free breakfast, you get one scoop of cornflakes. If you offer something so basic it’s better if you don’t offer anything at all
