The staff is very friendly, the bar on the top makes easy to socialize with other travelers, the rooms are clean and spacious. I liked it a lot! . The breakfast is very good and the view from the bar/breakfast place is very nice in the morning.

It is located in the center of the city of San Andres, it is almost 15 min walking to the beach and to the shopping zone. Safe, relatively clean and with a nice atmosphere. The cleaning could be better, specially in the bathroom.

I liked it a lot, we had a problem with the water for 2 days, still I met very nice people there (including the staff) kindda miss them, it was a very nice experience.

Everything was very clean, well painted, colorful and thematic, it was like made with lots of love. The breakfast wasn't too amazing but still good for the price, I stayed in twin room and I have no complains about anything but the water.

I'm looking forward to go to back.

Room Tip: I stayed at Bob Marley's room, I had the changes to take a look at some other ones and they look...

My friend and I nicknamed San Andres little hoe chi min city becaise of the totally ridicules number of scooters on the island and this hostel is on a very very busy Road. The noise was so bad we just had to leave after a few days. Ignore the usually very reliable lonley planet...The staff were not helpful, the bar was very dimly lit...the building is a 5 story office block and lacked charm...the communal spaces were not well decorated or comfortable and did not create a good atmosphere. ..I could go on.

O hostel não era tão ruim, a estrutura, mas faltou água durante 4 dias!! só conseguimos algum dinheiro devolta depois de brigar muuito na recepção ;( e os funcionários não se empenhavam em resolver nosso problema, mas conheci muita gente legal lá.

I enjoyed a lot the hostel, staff was helpful. Rooms are big with nice beds and a/c
During the night you can start the warm up at the hostel bar on the top of the bulding and you can make lots of friends there. Breakfast is not amazing but better than other hostels.

Room Tip: Nothing to add
