    The hostel is great! It includes a delicious free breakfast every day and the staff are so helpful. They make it a point to know you by name. They help you book amazing tours, and even help you get to your next destination! Although the rooms are small, there’s ample storage for all your stuff in the lockers. It’s in a great neighborhood and is no more than a 10 minute walk to the main part of the old city. It’s quiet, but there’s places to meet people on the roof or in the dining hall!

    Perfect if your working remotely - It has a big AC room with really good wifi and plenty of tables. Other pros: awesome staff, breaky was good, clean, good location, comfortable beds, AC in the room, nice showers (with pressure and hot water!). Cons: In terms of meeting people, it probably isn't the best and lacks a bit of vibe.

    We had a great stay at Life is Good! I stayed in the 4 bed mixed dorm and the rooms were very clean and the AC worked well. There were lockers for everyone, but you do need to bring your own lock. I didn't have one and was able to buy one at the front desk for $10mil COP. The hostel is conveniently located about a 5-10 minute walk outside of the old city and a 15 minute walk/short cab ride to the docks. Both Oscar and Jose at the front desk were incredibly friendly and helpful!

    Really comfortable hostel with lovely staff. Convenient for everything you want to see in the city and the rooftop jacuzzis and sun loungers are a great perk. The kitchen is not fully operational so it was a bit of a pain to cook and there isn't so much atmosphere so I found it hard to meet people solo traveller. Overall a great stay though!

    I stayed briefly but found the staff to be first class. Matthew was excellent and had very good recommendations and answered all my queries. The hostel was more of a hotel. It was clean and tidy. Ideal for a quick stop over.
