    The owner Chris and the staff were great. I stayed one night after a trip to Punta Cana and met awesome people. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Facilities and price wise this is the best hostel I've ever stayed at, hands down. It's so comfortable and it almost makes you not want to leave the hostel (we didn't). I would definitely recommend Island Life if you're traveling to Santo Domingo and nowhere else.

    Probably one of my best-ever hostel stays. If you're planning on visiting Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, don't miss the chance to stay at Island Backpackers Hostel. Chris, its owner, has done a fantastic job with it, from it's conception, design, reconstruction and detailed rendering to the services it provides to the traveller. I don't typically repeat destinations so it is quite difficult that I'll visit again. Hopefully friends and family will. I will surely recommend it!!!

    Great place with good vibe. There's only one small fan for the room so it can get quite warm when hot out. Very friendly staff.
