About Blue Almond Hostel

Only a 20-minute walk from the main beach at San Andres Island, Blue Almond Hostel offers budget accommodation with free WiFi and common facilities. The lounge features a Play Station 4 a 32 inch TV and an exchange library.

Diving and snorkeling activities can be booked on site. Bikes, golf cars and scooters can also be rented to explore the island. Additionally, we offer free surf boards and dive tanks for scuba certified guests that bring their own diving equipment.

Our rooms are all in different sizes, big enough to fit all the commodities you would need, there is a large communal kitchen with all facilities, appliances, crockery and cutlery available.

Our common area is a great place to chill out and meet fellow travelers with TV, Play Station 4, board games and a Bluetooth speaker, perfect for a lazy day after a scuba diving immersion, a surf trip or a night out. Our common areas are also the perfect spots to pre-drink and start out the night the right way.

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.
