We had a great experience at this hostel. We decided to call in advance and spoke with the owner Enrique. He was very polite and answered all my questions. He even suggested to bring some fruits from the main island as it could be difficult and pricier in Bastimentos.
Checking in was fast. They show you the rooms that they have available and then you decide how much you want to spend. Private room range from $10-45 night. Dorm is $6
Enrique is very good giving tips about what to do / where to eat. Have a meal with him, it is good to talk to him.
The lady that helps him is very nice. She did out stinky laundry for $5 dollars. I had some stuff drying outside of my room. She moved it to a better place so it could dry faster.
Decoration is very neat. He was able to keep some of the stuff from a "survivor" type show that was filmed there.
The dogs are amazing guards. Somehow they recognize the guests from the locals.
Kitchen is fully equipped.
Good: price, location, customer service.
