We booked in for one night prior to our Guajira Tour departing from the very same hotel the next morning - we were given a dormitory room and the rooms are very basic with rather uncomfortable beds, but for one night we thought anything would be OK. We saw some cockroaches so it definitely didn not appear to be the most hygenic place either! Everything just seemed a bit worn down. Shame - cause the hostel has a lot of potential. However...we went out for a meal and came back in the evening to discover a rat in the room - when we went to reception, the night porter did not seem to care much at all and refused to give us another room as it was more expensive than what we had paid! Even when he called the manager we were still not allowed to move. Their reaction was very poor to say the least and out of principle we decided to checked out... when packing up our things we found droppings all over the room so the rat was definitely a more permanent resident to the hostel! (p.s. we went to the hostel 'Mi Cassona' - which was a clean and absolutely fine alternative´to Castillo del Mar'!)
