    Very clean rooms, big kitchen with all facilities you need, good chill out aerea with some hammocks. We left our luggage here while we visited Tayrona National parc, which worked perfectly fine and safe. 15 minutes walking to mercado commercial = bus station for autobusses to Tayrona national parc. Good wifi also in the room. Delicious breakfast included. Very small pool, but at least there is one :-) good value, would definetly reccomend this hostel!

    Very nice hostel. Lots of fans, beds were comfy, bathrooms clean, spacious, and had good showers. Breakfast was great. Staff was mostly okay, though not everyone was too friendly or seemed very interested or eager to help. This one girl, however, was super sweet and helpful so she made up for it. All in all it's a great hostel, I stayed twice and would go back any time!
