Liked: Nice open common areas, good kitchen, clean rooms (each bed has it's own light and charging point) staff very helpful, nice pool shame it was raining!

Disliked: no lockers in rooms for valuables, not enough bathroom facilities for number of rooms. Location of hostel is about 20min walk from town (but they don't hide this info) They advertise a bar this is a bit of a stretch!!

Liked: the breakfast was delicious...cant complain when you get eggs made to order. Also the pool was very nice if it had been warm enough to swim while i was there. The rooms were spacious (i was in a 10 bed dorm with private bathroom)

Disliked: the bar isn't a proper bar, yes you can buy alcohol in the hostel but there isn't a bar atmosphere here and it was hard to meet people. The location is about a 25 min walk from the centre/atms/$ exchange or anything else you may need. The one computer for internet was lousy. Santa Cruz as a whole does not have much to offer. The price is too expensive for what you get, but there doesnt seem to be many options in Santa Cruz

Liked: Atmosphere, great breakfast - best hostel I´stayed in in Bolivia. Bonded with lovely crowd and we went out together in a group. Great social areas.

Disliked: Should sell more food- light lunch options etc as is quite far from town really.. They´d make a fortune!Also my mattress needed turning badly and the bed creaked. NB Exchanging two books for one back?? Com´on, who travels with two books. That needs to change. Otherwise just lovely. Felt like part of a family for 2 days :)
