    Can't rave enough about this hostel! One of the employees went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and taken care of. It is a beautiful building with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. We wish we could have stayed longer!

    10/10 hostel. Great location, minutes walk from shops, restaurants and bars. Rooms were clean, Beds are comfy, AC is strong and breakfast of eggs and toast is great. Staff were great and super helpful for organising trips/transport to Minca and Tayrona and let us store bags for free of charge for a couple of days. The pool was great too and good kitchen facilities for cooking. We loved so much we came back 3 times!

    Was only supposed to stay in la sierra for 3 nights, but ended up staying a week. The hostel is in the centre of the city with bars and restaurants close by. The staff at the hostel were amazing, Osiris and Angie kept the atmosphere in the hostel upbeat and fun and the roof top bar was a great place to meet other guests over a beer. The pool was brilliant for cooling off in the hot weather, i’d definitely recommend getting a room with AC. Can’t wait to stay again!

    Clean rooms. Pretty clean shared facilities. Rooftop bar was nice. Area really touristy, filled with foreigners, and people partying. Helpful staff, booked shuttle reservations for us to Cartagena. Take a taxi to 15 minutes to the beach in Taganga!

    Good place to stay. Location is very central. Close to restaurants and bars. Beds are pretty large. We took a private room which looks like a prison cell because it’s very small but it didn’t prevent us from having a good sleep.

    Stayed in the basic twin which was actually bunk bed so be warned and room was tiny. Beds were comfortable though. Lots of mosquitoes by the pool/kitchen and in our room. Kitchen was great and had everything you needed. Staff were really helpful and breakfast was basic but good. Location was great too. Lacking in atmosphere but not sure if that’s because it’s low season and lots of people checked out the day we got there.

    Location was very central and close to bars/restaurants. Our dorm room was over-booked so there was an angry and loud guest sleeping on the floor all night which the staff did nothing to address.

    the worst hostel in Colombia during my entire stay. super hot dorm, no atmosphere. initially charged the full price including my downpayment. didnt tell me beforehand that luggage storage costs (was gone one day). asked to put my wet clothes from minca out in the sun until i would leave to the airport when picking up my bag. they were upset i didnt want to pay for the luggage, so declined the clothes, unfriendly staff. wouldnt recommend anybody who wants some good sleep. breakfast is good
