    Stayed one night. Great location with lots of activity nearby. They had a party (wednesday night) that was so obliteratingly loud that I don't know how the attendees aren't deaf - keep in mind if you're there on a wednesday. Nice big kitchen! My friends room was a bit dirty, and the bathroom is right next to the room and there is no door so the faucet can be quite loud. Overall it's a nice spot.

    First time in Colombia! Arrived at the hostel, took a while to pollo (check-in) because the staff got lost in the sauce with mathematics. Staff does not speak english. The pool was very refreshing. Atmosphere was ok but it looked like we were the only ones full sending it. (Except the ones doing skidoo tracks in the bathroom). Beer was cheap atleast! We had to take a shot for Harambe because he took a shot for us. RIP Harambe. #paraharambe

    Location of the hostel is great. Dorm was not very clean. Beds were okay but sanitary was very dirty. There is an unpleasant party hostel vibe. I experienced smoking in the dorm room / bathrooms, waking up in the middle of the night because of vomiting hostel guests and a shower filled with the smell of urine in the morning. There was a problem with the electricity in the morning as well.

    They charged us with IVA even though We showed them out our Migration tickets. They said we will be refunded once we get back to the airport wich is a lie, because they only refund you for products NOT SERVICES OR STAYS AT HOSTEL/HOTELS. Breakfast is POOR. People at the front desk are rude, they try to charge you for everything.

    They have no way to lock the room and someone stole $200 out of a bag. Some employees are great but people working at night were of no help and had issues with security. Had a guy walk into the hostel with us trying to sell drugs even after we said no and didn't leave until we said we will call the police. We asked for help at front desk when we walked into the hostel to get rid of the guy following us but he knew the guy following us and didn't say anything until we threatened to call police.

    paid before the check in ( we came at 2 pm and the check in was available only at 3 pm ) After a short walk at the city we came back to make the check in . We went up stairs and saw the awful room with broken door (The room was uninhabitable in any way) The treatment we received was terrible, no attempt to help resolve the case and complete denial of the hostel owner. We finally decided to give up due to lack of cooperation and they just took the money (paid in cash)
