Perfect for young, single or groups of friends. Party hostel with music, pool... Rooms are crowded, breakfast is weak, but you can have a lot of fun, If you are travelling as a couple / not the party type, I would not recommend.

We stayed for about three nights in a mixed dorm. It was a bit strange as we had to walk through another dorm to get to our room. Fine for us but I imagine it's not great privacy for the other dorm with people walking through all the time. Our bunk was right next to the air con so it... More

I stayed one night in may in the hostel and was in trouble when I arrived. But the staff was very helpful and even allowed me to call someone. During the night they have the aircondition running which is a must with 7 people in a dorm. I slept in the dorm to the garden and it was very calm.... More

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
