Liked: Very nice hostel. Easy to meet people even though it is not a party hostel. Clean bathrooms and dorms . Showers are nice and hot. Location is excellent right in the heart of Candelaria. Staff could speak some english and was helpfull but not especially friendly

Disliked: Breakfast is not included.. The one you can buy is cheap but wasnt so good ( mostly what you typically get in Colombia- cardboard toasts with oily eggs) . They dont organize activities for the people who stay there, you would have to ask somewhere else. They have a bar but hostel remains very quiet, not so much of a party place.

Liked: The receptionists are so nice and helpful! They speak english but some are not so good so it helps to know spanish but it is not neccesary.

Disliked: the rooms are cold at this time but it´s not the property´s fault... just didn´t think it would be really cold, so bring warm sleeping clothes.
