We stayed here for 2 nights in La Tercera. There are only 3 rooms there so it's pretty quiet there. The rooms are spacious and the beds have separate blowers and curtains. There is a pool and cozy rooftop bar in their main part, just 2 minutes walk. The breakfast is also very good and freshly made with fruits. We really loved our stay here.

I spent two nights at this hostel last April-2019.It was just what I wanted.I arrived from Santa Marta and was a bit concerned because I wanted to visit the sand dunes and the desert of La Guajira but had nothing booked.I need not have worried!Within 5 minutes of arriving at this hostel the lovely lady at reception had not only handled check-in but also had booked me on a day tour of the desert all the ways up to Cabo de la Vela.This was just what I wanted....The room itself was very clean and more than adequate for my needs.I missed breakfast the first morning-due to the 5.30 am start for Cabo de la Vela-but breakfast the second morning was really good-more than enough food to set me up for the day....On my first night I even managed to meet the lovely Swiss owner of the place-such a friendly person with plenty of time to talk to his guests....I am happy to recommend this place very highly and gladly give it 10 out of 10.

Really enjoyed our stay. Low key, clean, friendly, excellent location, good price. Would stay again. Things to know: it's fairly noisy at night if you have a room adjacent to street or balcony. Light sleepers should bring ear plugs. No hot water, but not a big deal.

I recommand this hostel, the staff is so nice and helpful. It s clean and good to meet people. The breakfast is good too. The dorms are nice because they have lockers and every bed has his curtain. The hostel is in 3 different buildings. I stayed in la Tercera which is small. La Quinta is better because it’s where there is the pool and breakfast and the bar. But la Tercera is a little bit cheaper.
