Property Description

The place where I grew up is now home for backpackers visiting Santa Cruz. The hostel started in 2006 and has established a well-balanced between fun and relaxation. We go according to the guests staying, if you want to have fun and party, we organized BBQ's by the pool “all you can drink and eat” for everyone to meet and have a good time. If you want to rest and relax just watching movies or having a drink at the poolside bar you can also do so. We have years of experience running a confortable, secure and spotlessly clean place with lots of tourist information for your travel. We are not the cheapest place in Santa Cruz, but definitely the best one!

    Jodanga is great! Not many people were there since it was low season, but it was very clean, great breakfast, pool, and kitchen. Only downside is that it's about a 30 minute walk to the center of town. Still, definitely recommend!

    Staff were pretty good, atmosphere was slightly lacking at times but probably due to the off season, breakfast was very good

    We stopped here for one night before flying to Argentina. We arrived early after a night bus and the guy on reception swapped some rooms around so we could check in straight away and have a sleep, which was a nice unexpected gesture! The location was perfect for us as close to the bus stop. Good kitchen with self catering facilities. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff. Was a bit quiet when we stayed so not much of an atmosphere but it was just a pit stop for us so we were happy!

    Hostel was set up well - however it was very quite and left for little to no atmosphere. Also laundry was the most expensive I paid in South America even though it was all done onsite?? Pool was great and drinks responsibly priced.
