We enjoyed the atmosphere at Backyard. It was a traditional hostel in they had a pool, bar, young crowd hanging out, a place to cook your own food and plenty of loud music. We liked everything here except the dingy room we stayed in, but hey it's kinda expected at a Backpacker's. I would recommend this place to anybody looking... More

This hostel is amazingly located. The facilities arent that good and they provide no breakfast, but the pool was great and always quite clean. The best thing is the social atmosphere, with the inside bar the have in the center of the backyard, beyond the plants. The staff was all right, except for a problem i had regarding a taxi... More

The main reason for it was Backyard. I met a lot of great people and didn't feel like going anywhere else. The boat tour was a... More

Stayed here with my sister 2 weeks in total. It's a nice place, clean and very friendly staff. Only 2,5 blocks away from the Parque Central. Nice bar and very reasonable prices. It can be a little loud sometimes though, especially the parrots in the morning. So bring earplugs unless you're a very heavy sleeper. There's a lovely little place... More

Central, cheap, good vibes, hammocks, a pool and a bar. What else do you need? The boat trip was really fun and a great way to meet people. Pub crawl was all right. Staff was very helpful and nice to chat with. Would return in a heart beat.
