    Great place, a bit difficult to get to, so make sure you take them up on their offer of transportation to the hostel from their sister hostel in Cartagena. They provide everything you could possibly need and drinks/food are reasonably priced. Will definitely be coming back.

    We stayed 3 nights and it was brilliant! The hostel has its own private beach which is very relaxing and peaceful.There is no restaurant nearby as it located in a secluded area but food there is amazing and fairly priced. Staffs are so lovely and helpful. Blas and his team as well as the chefs make the environment so much better! We wish we could stay there longer! 200% recommended

    Super relaxed, super tranquilo, ultimate beach disconnect from reality vibe. Take a fair amount of cash and snacks with you, food is a bit pricier however it’s very nice and everyone eats together giving it a real community feeling. Big shout to Daisy and Yolanda who helped us with everything!!

    Baru was a fun escape from the city for a few nights. Staff is amazing, especially Desi! I recommend going by boat for 100k cop- its a bit hard to get there otherwise. The hostel organized a snorkeling trip which was amazing. Also recommend trying to go on a trip to see the bioluminescent plankton at night. Food was good, but a bit overpriced especially considering there's no where else to get food. Nothing was better than taking a hammock nap and a dip in the ocean- it cant be beat!!

    Isla Barú is an incredible spot! Everyone was very nice, especially the girls at reception. Food was good and weather was amazing. Sometimes the wifi can be a bit spotty. I, unfortunately didn’t make any friends because I only spoke English. It was a nice little break from the city though. I would definitely stay again!

    Amazing location - have a private section of the beach all to ourselves! Really lovely hostel in general. Only negative is that the staff didn’t really go out of their way to help on several occasions. E.g. We were informed upon arrival at 2pm the kitchen was closed. Having had no food all morning due to travelling, we asked if the chef could prepare something small, but she refused and were asked to wait until 4pm, with food finally only arriving after 5pm. So customer service could be better

    The food was mediocre. No places to lock up your belongings. The atmosphere was drap. Overall this place didn't seem to care about the experience. The staff seemed like they had no interest in working there or providing at least a friendliness that makes you feel welcome. Everything costs a little bit extra, and the guy running excursions tried to haggle with me. It all felt forced and like they are working every angle to make some more money. You could find a better hostel on this island.
