    Top, ostello che sembra più che altro un boutique hostell. Staff eccellente. Posizione molto buona ma non eccellente. Pulizia eccellente.Cucina eccellente. Sembra di stare a casa! Organizzano tutti i tour e tutti i collegamenti possibili a prezzi più che onesti. Consigliatissimo!

    Super friendly staff and great kitchen. Also very clean. A bit a ways away from the water but not too bad. We stayed at another top rated hostel in Riohacha too but this was better :)

    It is a great option to stay in Riohacha before and after the adventure in the desert. The owner is a very nice, helpful and resourceful woman. They will help you to arrange your trip to Punta Hallinas and Cabo de la Vela. Highly recommended. Abbracci Bea!

    Very good value for money and super clean and bright and airy. Really nice places to sit and read including the lovely roof terrace. Kitchen was very well equipped. Staff were quite friendly but a lot didn't speak English which would've been useful. Good safe neighbourhood. Wouldn't agree that it's the best hostel in Colombia but it was great for a quiet calm retreat if you want some time to chill.
