Really enjoyed my stay here. the view is incredible from the roof top bar, and is very relaxing in the hammocks. I wish more people were staying there at the time! the room was clean and so was the bathroom. showers sucked but thats the least of my concerns.

My boyfriend and I stayed in La Tortuga for 3 nights. We had a private room, which was super clean, and everything appeared to be brand new. The bed was comfy, and the staff cleaned the room, took out the garbage, and made the bed every day. The view from the deck/bar was awesome. It was a pleasure to lay... More

This is a nice enough hostel, clean with nice views from balconies and bar but two major problems with rooms. 1. We had a 3 bed dorm and the ceiling fan was small and far too high up so had no affect at all on temperatures. The wall fan only hit one of the beds, making the bunk beds incredibly... More

Everything about this hostel was amazing. The staff take you in, treat you like family and are so welcoming. Monica (who runs La Tortuga) is a funny and amazing person, as are the bar staff there (and their cocktails are delicious...passion fruit mojitos, yum). Look out for the pet turtles hanging around near the pool- they're the cutest! There is... More

Its a good, friendly, clean hostal. it's notvery close to the 'centre' where it all happens, a little bit dangerous to walk by yourself at night as well as small groups. romos are small but clean. a 4 room bedroom is better than a 6 bed bedroom!!

We headed to La Tortuga Hostel with a bunch of friends, having a lot of expectations, what we couldn't imagine it was going to be way better than what we thought. La tortuga is the place to be!!! Awesome place with friendly easygoing staff, they would give the shirt off their back for you If they could! They took us... More

Fellow travelers, I have stayed in this hostal for quite some time and spent some nights in a couple of the other hostals around. Each hostal differs from another although they all have more or less the same goal. But La Tortuga was the one for me, it gave me this feeling i could stay there for a way longer... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautiful hostel - Moni was a lovely host and we felt very comfortable and safe here. We stayed in a private room which was cool enough and spacious and the dorm rooms looked just as good. La Tortuga was a quiet, relaxing place to stay, upstairs on the hammocks on the rooftop was superb.... More

Loved Tortuga, don't know where to start first... The owner, Moni is an absolute gem, and does everything you can humanly expect to make your stay enjoyable... Rooms are nice, the hammocks have excellent views, and the roof-top bar makes me want to stay forever... 3 months was definetely not enough! Heard that they are replacing the inflatable pool by...
