After 19 months travelling south america this was easily one of the best hostels i have stayed in. I was only going to stay a couple of nights but soon extended my stay longer and decided it was the perfect place to end my travels. Mona, Juan and all the staff were really nice and chilled and always around to help with anything and had loads of good information on all the things to do in the area and would help you organise it all. They were very friendly and definitely up for having a good time; Some parties were organised while i was there and they were immense!! The building is a very cool bamboo structure, newly built so its really clean and with a very nice feel and lots of hammock around the place.
The rooftop bar has some of the best views (and drinks) in all taganga and is great to watch the sunset in the evening and chill with some really good and strong, cheap, tasty cocktails and meet other people before going out.
They also organise diving courses which is one of the best things to do there. I sorted it with them and Juan took me out and I had a great time! He was really friendly and professional and I saw so many incredible animals and reefs.
Maybe im ranting but it deserves it! This hostel is great and the people there gave me an amazing end to my travels and I would recommend it to all types of people. Hopefully i will get back there soon. My only complaint is that is has made coming back to england so much harder!!
