    I absolutely LOVED La Choza!! The staff makes it feel like home (thank you Francesca)! The pictures here don't do it justice. It is quiet hostel so if you are looking to party, this isn't it. But if you are looking for something cozy, safe, and peaceful, this is it! You can get a great night's sleep here and the staff is super helpful. Can't wait to stay here again. My boyfriend and I loved it and we will definitely be back!!

    Fantastic place and stay! Owner was a sweetheart, knew a great deal about SD, and made sure I felt welcome in my stay there. Everything was clean, location is perfect, bed was comfy enough, and they provide clean towels. Only (minor) complaints were that the hanger for the handheld showerhead wasn't able to hold it pointing downwards, and the one coffee maker they have doesn't have a handle and leaks. Worth mentioning since both these things are cheap and easy to fix, and every guest uses these

    I really liked the hostel a lot, staff was helpful and really friendly, kitchen use and equipments were good, the rooms are clean and the hostel in general is cozy. The location is good, very close to main street and close like 5-8 mins by walk to Colomb House. The wifi works good in kitchen area and back garden.The only bad thing is wifi doesnt work in the dorm room.

    The hostel is gated. There is a buzzer on the top right inside of the doorway. It is 2 blocks from the main street. Upon arrival the staff gave me a map and showed me places to go for everything. Key given for main door and room. The dorm has six beds with each bed having their own towel, fan and plugs. They have lockers and provide locks. Common areas clean. Wifi barely reaches the room. Only one shared bathroom not in room. Great place and laid back.

    Peter is a great host, he was very friendly and helped me plan my trip through the rest of the dominican republic. The hostel is quiet and in a great location in the Old Town.

    I stayed at La Choza in early August 2020 (so during the pandemic). The property host and co-owner was extremely kind, friendly, and is bilingual. I would absolutely, definitely consider staying at this place AGAIN if I return to Santo Domingo. *One note though: the pictures I saw online of the property before I came do not accurately & completely capture the earthiness, airy/breathiness, quiet and simple beauty of the place (particularly the open kitchen facing the pool area).
