Liked: Good facilities in terms of pool, kitchen, restaurant, pool table and was pretty clean.

Disliked: Only stayed one night instead of 3 as there was NO atmosphere whatsoever. I get the feeling its a place more for couples who want to chill out than solo backpackers wanting to meet people and be social.

Liked: Friendliness of staff, Pool

Disliked: It's impossible to relax since they build a 2nd floor (starting EVERYDAY at 8am) and have loud music all day long. Walking home at night is not safe even one of the receptionist says different. Pool would need exchange of water.

Liked: There was a great atmosphere, it was very lively in the evenings but the music didn't go on late so didn't disturb those wanting to sleep. The pool area was lovely and much needed in the heat. The food was amazing - highly recommend eating there.

Disliked: The pool got pretty dirty and could have done with being cleaned.

Liked: My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights last week. The staff were so nice and helpful! The hostel has a very energetic/friendly vibe. Lots of backpackers/foreigners. Met great people there!

Disliked: The ONLY negative was that the air conditioning in the rooms is only on from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. However, this isn't an issue if you're gone all day. Would recommend!

Liked: Swimming pool was nice for the hot days! Free biljard table was great and the yard was well conducted.

Disliked: The drinks of the hostel were expensive and they didn't accept own alcohol beverages. Bartender also tried to collect too much money for the drinks. Sometimes he offered "free drinks " and the next day he wanted money for them.

Liked: The location was good, the bathrooms were extremely clean with good, hot showers. The beds in the dorm room were clean and comfortable.

Disliked: The hostel didn't provide a readable map so I didn't feel safe going outside. The hostel was unable to give us a range of activities to do in Bogota. They didn't recommend any museums apart from the gold museum. In Buenos Aires the hostel arranged excursions to nightclubs and other activities in large groups for people to do. Sometimes hostels have entertainment that comes to the hostel or dinner (that you pay extra for), pizza nights, bbq etc. This hostel was missing this. It's vital because it gives single travellers the opportunity to meet others in a safe environment and enjoy some nightlife in a big city which they would otherwise be unable to do.

Liked: Nice common area with pool.

Disliked: Staff is unhelpful, rude and tries to rip you off constantly. They play hot potato with tourists using outside friends to overcharge for outside activities. Overpriced and underdeveloped rooms and facilities. Main desk woman sits on phone for 30 minutes while you try to talk to her, while "El Negro" (chef) seems friendly but scams you into taking trips with his friends while splitting money on the side. BEWARE and ask around before committing to anything with them. You want a safe haven out of a hostel when traveling in new and foreign places and this simply is not the place.

The property's response is...

Liked: The property grounds are beautiful and are surrounded by mountains. The pool area is lovely as well. When you arrive you think your in paradise.

Disliked: The rooms were AWFUL, hard beds, hard pillows, hot and stuffy and there wasnt any warm water although too be fair it was too hot to have a hot shower. Also because it was low season they were re-painting furniture. They hadn't put a sign up to say about the paint and lots of us made the mistake of ruining our clothes. They have a bar and therefore you are not able to take your own booze in, however when I wanted to buy a drink we were told no because the barman had the key and had gone out. Lastly they try to sell tours to guests for Tayrona park but they charge way more than the tour operators in the area do.

Liked: Great hostel. A hostel with facilities, atmosphere and a POOL like this is rare. No breakfast or anything, but a great place overall. Sounded like the other hostels in Taganga couldn't compete with quality or location.

Disliked: Kinda wish the staff was a little more helpful or spoke better English. And while most rooms had AC, it wasn't always working properly and some of the rooms didn't even have it. Other than that, great place.

Liked: This property offers great facilities which is reflected in the price. The owner and guys working at the bar and the kitchen are really friendly and helpful. A recommended choice if you want to splurg a bit

Disliked: Make sure you verify your bill at checkout. We were three groups, and all three bills had errors in them.
