    This hostel is definitely a social hostel. The common area was great with chairs, the pool and a ping pong table. The rooms weren’t that clean and the beds we had didn’t have curtains. The wifi barely worked when we were there and at night they wouldn’t turn our air con on unless we asked. But for the price it was a good place to stay and we slept well.

    The wifi never ever works. Ive stayed here 4 nights and everyday they say it will be fixed but it never is. Staff are friendly. Breakfast is good. Bottom bunks are great, with a curtain. Bathrooms are always dirty.

    Very Good

    The staff is sometimes extremely slow and not very motivated at the reception. They seem very exhausted and lost sometimes. The hostel is great, perfect location, good beds, the breakfast is very simplistic but ok 👌🏽

    I was put into a dorm with what seemed like a family (four or five middle aged men and women as well as a few children?!?!) which felt uncomfortable and inappropriate. The electric lock on the door to the dormitory broke as soon as I arrived meaning I was locked out on numerous occasions. Not a hostel for solo travellers, it’s mainly locals staying here. The staff are great though, very sweet and helpful.

    Quite unorganized, they made us move from our private room to another mid-stay. Also a bit dirty.

    There was confusion when I checked in. They charged my card twice. There was confusion when when I went to bed because they had put another guest in my bed and it took an hour to get it solved. Then there was confusion at breakfast because the didn’t call my name so I missed my meal. The atmosphere was mostly those looking to hook up and so I spent most of the time alone. That one is on me I guess. I won’t be coming back there.

    The hostel was fine, But they charged me 400.000cop from another hostel in their chain without me ever being there and nobody could or would help me with the problem. I wanted to share and tell you to be careful with the chain.

    We made a reservation, which they acknowledged, but then said they didn't have our room and we would have to stay somewhere else, I had flown from another continent and waited at the hostel for over 3 hours, just to be turned away, EVEN WITH A VALID RESERVATION that I had paid a deposit for, I then had to leave on foot w no help. They were not only disappointing but very dismissive about how to fix the problem or get the deposit back. I cant say this loud enough, go somewhere else, not worth it
