After spending one night in an overpriced hotel with a prominent name and little else to recommend it, I moved to this simple place and was very happy. I stayed here for two weeks and used it as my travel base while on the Colombian coast. The staff was wonderful and my trip to Colombia will always be connected to... More

After looking round some dorm hostels full of young adults (I'm 40!) I was very pleased to find this budget accomodation in the heart of the beautiful old town. I didn't fancy the the noisier parts like Getsemani. I wanted my own room but not at hotel prices. Santo Domingo fitted the bill. Sure the room needed some work but... More

We booked the room for 4 nights because it is on the list of the South America Handbook. The person I emailed to confirmed that there is a bathroom, breakfast included and free wifi. The room turned out to be dirty, there are 3 beds but not even a desk, the bathroom is haphazardly put together (the faucet did not... More

We stayed in this hotel for 8 nights only because it was already paid. Otherwise I would had done the same as other couple, who left the hotel early in the morning before having breakfast. My bed was broken and just after they had "fixed" some bugs appeared all over the blanket. Seems that they were inside bed's wood for... More

Our flight was delayed Saturday (after 5 hours of waiting with Viva Colombia we asked them to change our flight to the next day) so just wanted a basic hotel right near to plaza santo domingo. Unfortunately, we didn’t want quite that basic, however our fault for not looking properly prior to paying. The location is great, however the Hostal... More

The hotels is disgustingly damp and dirty. The rooms have no windows or locked one. They are wildly over priced for what you get. On top of this, I booked a 60 000Pesos room by email and found out they wanted to charge me 75000Chf for the same disgusting, boxlike room with not even a lock on the door. The... More

I stayed in this hotel last february, and came back to Brasil with a pneumony, because the rooms are very dirty, the furniture is old and poor, the walls have humidity and the breakfast is basic. In fact, the hostel is cheap and the location is excellent, but the cheap sometimes is the most expensive choice. Avoid it!

We arrived having booked over a month ahead. The room was quite nice, clean and had A/C as agreed. The price was what we had agreed as well. As for facilities, they are very good. The shower does not have hot water as, according to the clerk/manager there, the climate is too hot for such amenity. We agreed but would've... More

I stayed here 8 nights in February and March 2011. The Hostal Santo Domingo is on a beautiful, typical colonial street in the old city, within the city walls. A very short walk - 150 meters - to Plaza Santo Domingo, with several outdoor restaurants, and evening street entertainment. About 300 meters to the city walls. Rooms are claen, AC... More

The location is fabulous - right in the center of the old town. I was surprised to find out that i was assigned to a 3 bed -room even though i was traveling solo and requested a single room. I paid 3 times more than it was confirmed in the email. I am positive sure that they had other rooms... More
