“Great host, great value”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights, and had a great experience. Santiago who owns the hostel and his wife are brilliant hosts! Taganga is a unique place and he knows the area like the back of his hand. Rooms are safe, clean, comfortable and good value. It's the perfect base to enjoy a fun night, plan trips onwards to Tayrona and the best pool in town. We loved our time here, thank you!

This is the second time I have stayed at the Bayview Hostel and both times I have found it to be a perfect hostel. It is really clean and the staff here in this family run hostel go above and beyond to welcome you. There is a great pool area for chilling out with a satellite TV and a speaker system that you can hook your iPod up to. There is also a pool table, ping pong table, BBQ and foosball table next to the massive kitchen. All in all it is a really nice hostel! Quiet and cheap. Our room had two fans and air conditioning. All of this is a stones throw from the beach. Would definitley recommend staying here if you come to Taganga!!
Just as we were about to leave, we found out that Santiago (the owner) is a diving instructor...looks like we will have to come back!!

I found Bayview to be a really nice and chill hostel. Clean and chilly dorms with AC, a pool, pool table and Direct TV made our stay very comfortable. I stayed for a week, a little bit more than I planned for and haven't got any complaints really...The staff have been nice and helpful and It's not too far to the beach.. An allover good hostel!

Bayview is a nice place a few minutes walk from the beach in the lovely town of Taganga. Me and a friend stayed in a doorm with A/C. New sheets every day, A/C working really well and bathroom okay. I really enjoyed the pool (big one) and the relaxing area had a huge flatscreen tv with tons of channels. Overall I had a really good relaxin stay what was all I wanted when I came there. If you're looking for a relaxing and nice stay In Taganga I can recommend it, no bad experiences came in my way!

An alright hostel in a good location. The pool and hostel could do with lots of fixes. The breakfast was small and never ready by 7.30 or even 8.
But the rooms have air con... And if you can get the dorm at the top of the stairs the balcony overlooks the bay and the local football field. We spent all weekend watching sunsets, football and drinking beer.

Room Tip: Top of the stairs dorm room of 6 beds. Best view.
