Great little spot for a hotel. Staff are friendly. Good location only few minutes walk to ATM and grocery store and restaurants. 10 minutes walk to the main square. Rooms are spacious and it's cleaned once a day. Cafe on site is fabulous, serves great coffee for really reasonable prices and breakfast for $2 US is exceptional (pancakes and fruit... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. We payed for a 4 dorm room with a/c that you can control, which is awesome!! Room and bathroom were clean. Kitchen on third floor is functional and has most of the essential things. Very quite and relaxing, definitely not a party hostel but the location is very central. Lots of nice restaurants and...

Patrick was away so his brother Jim and his wife (Berry, I think) were running the hostel while we were there and were really friendly and helpful. Our en-suite private room was very comfortable and clean with plenty of space so was great for relaxing after hiking Ciudad Perdida. The bed was very comfortable! I would recommend trying to get...

Stayed 4 nights here in May. Pat the owner is a nice guy and very helpful. Cafe serves good food for breakfast at reasonable prices. Less of a party scene but still a good place to meet non lunatic travellers who still enjoy going out. Would definitely recommend it!

First of all we came in the room the roofventilation was not working. There were no Moskitos nets on the open Window. Internet only worked close to the reception. The kitchen was really dirty. But the worst thing was the loundry service. Double the price of all we payed in columbia. And afterward the White clothes were more dirty than... More

We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at the Aluna Hostel for three nights in April 2014. We paid $41 a night for a spacious room with private bathroom, air-conditioning and cable television. The standard double bed was average comfortable. The bathroom was clean, although the sink had a leak the staff had trouble fixing. We found two cockroaches in the... More

Recently stayed in palomino. Spent the first two nights somewhere else and afte a quick excursion to cabo de la vela and punta gallinas stayed at this lovely place. The host, Lucian's is such a lovely, vibrant woman. Caring and hospitable, this place makes you feel at home. Clean, friendly, and incredibly helpful. Will definitely return!

We booked ahead for one extra night after the trekking. However when we returned they gave away all double rooms! We were tired after four days in the... More
