    I thought Republica Hostel was really great. They did the basics well - the beds were comfortable and private, with proper separators and curtains. There were handles to help you up to the top bunks. The lights and charger sockets worked. The toilets and showers were cleaned regularly and bleached every morning - I don't enjoy the smell of bleach but I'm happy to smell it in a hostel toilet!! But also the hostel had a great atmosphere, a nice bar and was really well decorated. One of my faves.

    I love this hostel, came for three nights stayed almost ten. The beds are comfy, good showers and nice vibes. It’s a good size hostel where you can get to know people easily. The pub crawls are super fun too! Only downfall is it gets so busy that if you want to extend a night the day before you’ll like have to move beds a lot. Make sure you book in advance! The bunk beds are a bit hard to climb and are pretty high though.

    Pretty hostel with an open air layout conducive to helping meet other travelers. Cleanliness was the best I could expect for many people using the same bathrooms and showers. Great location and great place for solo travellers.

    pros: - clean - free hostel breakfast - it's also very social as you all sit on a big table - great location in centro - secure hostel - gated, key card for rooms and lockers that are big enough for large rucksacks - very friendly staff - Otavio was a highlight - they recommend good tours - we did the playa tranquilla tour for around 100COP pp and it was great value for money. we heard a similar thing about other tours - they have varied evening entertainment including salsa and champeta dance classes -

    COCKROACHES IN THE BED. Otherwise, while the beds were private the rooms were very small with little space to leave your things.
