This hostel has great juju! Friendly and helpful staff, you can tell they enjoy their jobs, which creates a very relaxed environment. The cafe is beautiful and pool was a great perk. PLUS, they arranged for a driver to pick me up at the airport!!

The rooms were reasonable nice looking and affordable. They kept them clean for the most part and the staff was also very helpful towards tourists, only questionable aspect was the wi-fi, which was pretty spotty most times....

This hostel was clean, big dorm with plenty of floor space. The staff are supper nice and accommodating (thanks guys). Airco was a bonus. The pool is cool too. It had a cool chilled out vibe to it also. The only thing that could improve is the kitchen, it was pretty dirty and didn't have enough of anything. I ate... More

Stayed here 1 week. Great hostel, clean, good location to central city. Pancake breakfast provided. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Only downside is the very poor internet which is important for travellers planning their next move. Strange to have such poor internet in the central banking district?? Otherwise enjoyable stay.

Hostal Villa Vento has been a fantastic place to stay! The things that have stood out for me are the relaxed atmosphere and the staff who have been kind, welcoming, and really friendly. I arrived unwell and felt looked after by the staff from the word go, being offered extra blankets and camomile tea! I was even allowed to make... More

I came in under the cover of darkness and was greeted with a smile. Little did I realize then how that smile would grow to good friendships. I stayed at all three Hostels spending many weeks at Villa Vento Surf in Santa Catalina where I felt like family. Good vibes lots of laughs great kitchens to cook killer meals. Go... More

We were really happy with the hostel! Perfect Amtosphere, nice area, cool people! What we loved the most was the pool in the backyard! We enjoyed it so much that we even didn't want to leave the house because it was so relaxing! Thanks again to the whole team for your help! :) All the best from Austria! Katharina

Loved the fact it had a pool and an outside sitting area! Lots of sofas and chairs in the lounge to hang out on and a kitchen for use. Staff were wonderful and the place was kept really clean and tidy. We stayed here for two nights. First night in the dorm and the second in a private room. The... More
