Not only is it more expensive than EVERY other hostel I've stayed at in Colombia, it's also dirty, poorly equipped (the shared shower is essentially a converted closet), and sports a staff that are rude and not at all interested in even smiling at you, much less helping. As I sit here writing this review, they are blasting Wiz Khalifa so loud that people outside on the street are dancing to it. I like Wiz Khalifa too, but not 24/7. The internet hasn't worked for most of my stay, the rooms are dark and dirty, and they don't even change the sheets for you....they make you do it!! All this for the bargain price of 30,000/night for a 10 bed dorm (10,000 more than any other hostel I've stayed at in Colombia). NOT RECOMMENDED!!
