    A lovely place to stay. Part of a complex of hostels which are all very similar. My advice would be to book one night at the cheapest, enjoy the beaches and the atmosphere, and then decide if you want to stay for longer as it is very dependent on company and personal preferences to the style of accommodation/living. The staff are excellent, very welcoming. Bring mosquito repellent, some food but not lots, and cash for essentials.

    Loved this hostel! Super chilled, living out in the forest was amazing. After partying hard in Cartagena it’s exactly what I needed and wish I stayed longer! Sebastian the guy running the place was really friendly and helpful whenever we needed anything or any advice about the island. If you’re looking for a quiet getaway on a beautiful island I can definitely recommend galeria! One tip, bring mosquito repellent, we all got savaged on the island but that’s nothing to do with the hostel!
