Simple but adequate rooms, serene and beautidul garden, helpful and warm staff and with a great location if you want to explore the city. I will certainly come back if i visit the ciry again. Highly recommended by both me and my friend.

You can use kitchen. 5 minutes to Metro bus stop and public transport passing by at next parallel street. 15 min walking to Parque Central. Airy rooms with good working... More

Let's get some things out first: It does not have Air Condition Rooms and It does not have a Restaurant. This is a place to Sleep, chill and go on a budget. I staid with them for about 4 months on business in Puerto Plata. They market themselves as a Hostel but they have more solo rooms than shared rooms,... More

Staying at villa Carolina was truly a high light of our trip! The staff was so lovely and thoughtful. Breakfast was delicious. The home is perfectly cared for and one can get lost at lazy afternoons relaxing there. The staff truly went out of their way to make us feel at home. Highly recommend!

Hands down one of, if not the best hostel I've stayed at. The room was large and clean. Wifi, although spotty to non existent in the room, worked well in the common areas. Included breakfast of toast, fresh fruit, juice and coffee was good considering the price. But best of all the owners, especially Francia, were great! Very friendly, and... More

This hostel is a quiet oases in the noisy city of Puerto Plata. The accommodation is good value for money and you get to stay in a traditional colonial house. We, my girlfriend and I, stayed here for two nights. If you have a question or a problem they are pleased to help you with it. I would recommend this... More

Its just the best hostel I've been. Francia (the owner) is just amazing. The room is really good and have a fair price. If you're looking for kitesurfing in puerto plata, there you can also find Fernando who can show you the spots or give you kite class (iko teacher). The hostel is close to the metro st autobuses, la... More

This is our third stay in Villa Carolina. Our previous stays were business oriented, but this time we took some foreign friends to showcase our beautiful island, specifically the areas of Cibao and Sosua. We decided to stay low budget and support local restaurants (no international chains). Two nights and three days, Francia was super helpful, inmediatly giving us a... More

Francia is an incredibly welcoming and accommodating host. All the rooms are immaculate and serviced everyday by the very friendly Villa Carolina family. The WiFi, pool, and breakfast (complete with mango fresh from the backyard) were added bonuses! I would definitely recommend Villa Carolina to anyone visiting Puerto Plata, looking for accommodation with easy access to the city in a... More
