“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Located nearby supermarkets, restaurants and walking distance from the beach, is a great value for your money. The staff is awesome. They will help you with all your needs. The rooftop bar is great and this is where breakfast is served, so you're going to enjoy some nice views. Have in mind this is a hostel, so don't expect a five-star all inclusive resort. But if you are willing to spend little, getting to know people from all over the world and even have a really friendly staff to help you, this is the place. If I'm ever going back to San Andres, I'll stay right there again.

This is an average hostel with decent room and friendly staff. The rooms are clean and tidy and the dorms have lots of space and storage. There is a lack of social activities for people and the set up of the hostel with many common areas makes it difficult to meet people. If you are traveling alone this might not be the best place to stay. Location is good and it is a short walk to the beach or shops. Booked diving through the hostel and it was very well organised. Average place to stay but the price reflects this.

My first impression was caused by a cockroach when I reach the hostel! The room' ground was very dirty too, and my towel has a whole. As I was with my boyfriend in a private room, for a bit more we change for a more confortable hotel nearby. However, the atmosphefe of the hostel it's nice, and the breakfast is ok.

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...
