    The Alchemist hostel was a nice stay! Not much athmosphere at the hostel, but the private rooms (located in another property) are great value for money. Big bed, good fan (can get a little bit hot in the room, but that is Taganga), separate kitchen for the private rooms and the security is great! Breakfast however is not included even though it says so on hostelworld, and it wasn’t worth including anyway, because it was bad and costy compared to what you can get down the street. Helpfull staff!

    Super loud but only from the staff music being played loud from early morning to late at night - bring earplugs if you plan to stay here. Was a bit further out than the other hostels but was way cheaper as well. Be careful as a solo female traveller in this town - got hassled the moment I arrived until the moment I left so didn't stay out late after dark.

    This hostel was one of the most disappointing experiences I've had while travelling. I booked a double room with private bathroom with AC. There was no AC. Reviews say the hostel is new. It is unfinished, not new. There are no showerheads on any of the showers and the water trickles out of cut out water bottles. After sweating for 30 min while settling in, i decided to ask for a room with AC, and the staff was understanding enough to move us to a dorm room with AC where mosquitoes ate us up.
