Large dorms, clean bathrooms and a Nice social area. The Staff is also Very friendly. It is also close to Bubbas House where You can enjoy an amazing alive music show every Monday and a Delicious Barbecue on Friday night just behind the hostal.

I spent two nights on Isla Colon and decided to get out of there before it destroyed my will to live or I decided to raise the place to the ground. Comparatively Bastimentos is a place I could easily live. Chilled out, friendly locals, great vibe. Hostal Basitmentos was built and is run by an easy going, friendly guy who... More

It is spacious, has a nice view and has lots of hammocks. The dorm and sanitary were ok. Kitchen is spacious but needs an update.. Can not imagine how place is when it is actually full. When low season it could use more atmosphere; except for the voluneer(s) who tried their best!

The hostel is great, with lots of space to chill and hang out with the other guests, hammocks, sofas, etc. Rooms are basic. Kitchen is big enough but also quite basic. Good wifi, breakfast not included.We enjoyed it a lot!

The place is great. Fast wifi, double kitchen, close to the stores. There was so much space to chill and so many hammocks set up too. The rooms were basic for sure - the bed sheets don't really stay on the mattress, but the staff are willing to change your sheets/towels any time you ask. Our original plan was to... More

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The communal space is great, with numerous hammocks, and the staff are super helpful booking buses and tours etc. Rooms are comfortable with big lockers and air con that works! The main negative about this hostel is the toilets/showers. The lights are very temperamental meaning showering/using the toilet in the pitch black.... More

We had a great time in hostal bastimentos! And we'll come back as soon as possible. Big hostel with a big kitchen. It's always interesting to cook or see what people are cooking. Very nice people who run this hostel and two awesome dogs. Bastimentos is an Island with great atmosphere and beautiful beaches. We would recommend this small paradise!

We stayed 3 nights at this hostel and we had a great time. The staff was nice and the people cool. We had a double room for 24$ which is very cheap. The rooms are good for a short stay. BUT: The last night we noticed that the bed sheets would always come off so we tried to fix it.... More

This review is solely based on the conditions of the hostel itself. I can't say anything poor about the staff because they were effective and efficient at their jobs. Start with the hotel grounds.. We got placed in a room to the back of the hostel (double bed room for 2 ppl $20). On the journey to our room each... More

The owner, Enrique, and his staff are wonderful and helpful. My friend and I were here during New Year's, and they helped us out big time with finding us a place to stay. The hostel is very mellow--good views from the terrace and lots of chairs and hammocks. Big kitchen for you to use.
