I stayed here after the lost city trek as i was recovering from an illness and very tired. It was a perfect paradise- quiet, had a pool, there were hammocks and beds to lie around in, and beautiful flowers! See the photos !! I was surprised there was no one there when i was there - maybe not so many people know about this place! I didn’t mind because i really needed to recover. My private dorm was very clean and tranquil. I want to thank Diana also because she helped me and gave me a lift!!

Lovely staff/volunteers, stayed whilst we were recovering from an illness and it was peaceful and quiet! Bit far from 'tourist' part of town but perfect for what we needed

We had a great 4 nights at KAIA. while it is outside of the historic 'Centro' it is easy enough to catch a cab to make the trip for 8.000 pesos. Our double private room (#2) was very spacious, and bed was super comfy. A couple of Volunteers at the hostel made the stay extra special; even taking us to Taganga beach using the Hostel's Nissan Patrol (think jeep or land cruiser). The pool area was definitely a great place to relax. Close to many Grocey Stores and cheap eats. Good Wifi!
