    this is definitely the best hostel I've been so far. modern and comfortable equipped with very clean rooms and beds. the kitchen is well equipped and a nice place to be. but the most awesome thing was the breakfast which was nice prepared. the English speaking stuff is keen on helping you with all your problems. they give you advices with tours around and places to be. I booked the tour to Cabo de la vela via the hostel and it was beautiful. definitely to recommend!

    El hostel es muy limpio y el personal es demasiado amable, tienen una terraza con una pequeña piscina para refrescarse y el bar es un sitio encantador!!! Las camas son cómodas y los baños son muy grandes, lo que mas se destaca es la amabilidad de los recepcionistas.

    Great hostel in the middle of Riohacha. The staff were very welcoming and helped me with a lot of things I needed to do (organize tours, do some repairs) and I probably wouldn't have been able to do it without them! Vibe is pretty relaxed, there's a bar in the front and a pool and big yard in the back. Easy to meet people and very nice people working there.

    Everything was amazing. Only one issue: They charged me 6000 (2dolares) to take a shower after I had my check out. It is weird for a hostel. Besides that, I loved it.

    Lovely, chill hostel in a nice neighbourhood in Riohacha. Rooms and bathrooms are well maintained and always clean. Guest kitchen is really clean and tidy. Was a little quiet when I was there but there is a nice bar attached which creates a bit of atmosphere. The couple that run the hostel are some of the nicest people I've ever met- they are so accommodating and kind and really do a great job of running the hostel. Highly recommend this place

    The employees are very friendly and likeable people. In the evening we played drinking games and had a lot of fun. Unfortunately I got sick (fever, sore throat, nausea, etc) and lay in bed for two days. One of the employees (carime) was worried about me. She went to the pharmacy and got medication, they brought breakfast to my bed and were always there for me. Happiness in disguise. Thank you!
