    Really fun hostel! The Thai Terrace was a great change in flavor, after being in Colombia for several weeks! Very affordable, during happy hour, you can get a glass of wine for about $1 to enjoy with a deliscious pad thai or curry! Nelly took great care of everyone and was so fun to talk to. Something about the beds was more comfortable than other places and the sheets were so soft. I slept so well there. The front desk were welcoming, funny and knowledgeable. Yanny had great adventure tips!

    Very nice hostel to stay at. Really helpful and nice staff that would go the extra mile for you. Only drawback is that the lake could be dry at times, which ruins the view; something the hostel can't do anything about!

    I stayed at Lake View for 2 nights, and it was really good. At the rooftop there is a good restaurant and a good vibe to chill out. Great view to the lake and it near to the boulevard. Thanks

    The staff is super nice but both mornings I was there the maids came in at 8:30am one day, and 9am the next to change the sheets. The first morning I was still sleeping (I thought she just didn't see me) but the second morning there were 3 of us still sleeping. Checkout isn't until 12, and the hostel wasn't full so not sure what the rush was. The first floor was loud so ask for the second floor. The restaurant was good with great happy hour prices. And the tours were good as well!

    Great hostel with a cool vibe, right next to the water and a short walk away from the town center. The staff was really helpful and welcoming, and had lots of tips about things to do in and around town. Because it's not in the very center, the hostel is actually quiet so you can relax at night. The upstairs bar/restaurant wasn't open due to the pandemic, but it looked cool. We stayed in a private room, which was super comfortable and had a great view of the Represa.

    2 nights in private room w balcony.Staff friendly and can organise tours/activities. I recommend they smoke 10 metres away from the facade, across the road, as the smell entered my room upstairs. Restaurant closed, terrace dirty and smells of cigarette smoke. Owner needs to replace couches in common area as stained and uninviting. Comfortable bed, but cigarette burnhole in sheet. Kitchen (and toilets staff using) filthy, like college sharehouse, needs professional cleaning.

    [Find my full fleshed out review on TripAdvisor] Clean bathrooms. Have no paper towels but a cloth towel for drying hands. Breakfast 12 mil and wish the omelet included toast. Since the lake is down, no view of lake. Good value. Rooftop closes at midnight and bar closes at 11:30. Lockers outside of 6 bed dorm. Short walk from the central square area. Lots of activities available in theory, but you gotta find the people to join. Helpful staff.
