We work very hard to have a very respectful and peaceful vibe without the crazy drunken atmosphere offered at other hostels in the island. Our goal is to make you feel like you own a home in the Caribbean and provide you with great social atmosphere, as well as giving you the opportunity to have a good sleep after a busy day of sightseeing the island, we have a strict quiet time of 11.59 PM, but we apply the 80-20 rule, which means that if 80% of the people staying at the hostel want to stay up partying then we move the quiet time accordingly.

After you book with us.
-You will receive a welcome email, in it there'll be a link to a Whatsapp group we created for guest to help coordinate events and activities.
-Send us your arrival time or flight number, that way we can match you with people arriving on the same flights and you can share a taxi.
-You will receive a self check in email, we suggest you fill all the information that way when you arrive to the hostel you check-in time will be faster.

Legal Stuff.
-Registro Nacional de Turismo: RNT29218
-The Blue Almond hostel is committed to enforce Law # 679 of 2001 in which prevents and counteracts the sexual and/or commercial exploitation of underage minors.

My friends and I had the best time staying at this hostel. 9 days of paradise. Always super clean and Juan the owner was the absolute best. Really felt cared for. He was always offering guidance for cool places to visit and set us up with all the needs from snorkels, diving books to motos. Highly recommend staying here if you want to feel apart of the community on the island. Miss it already. Thank you to Juan and his beautiful family :)
