We stayed here for 2 nights in January 2015, checking in on late notice. Positives include: 1) a very kind and helpful staff, 2) spacious common areas and 3) a great price (50,000 COL per night for a en suite double). Negatives include: 1) the place is quite run down and needs a make-over, 2) the rooms redefine "spartan", and...

We arrived late to taganga and decided to sleep in a double room for 30000, much less than any other place. The next morning we discovered an extremely run down hostel: the kitchen was dusty and dirty with not enough utensils to cook, the pool no longer exists, and the whole place feels like a graveyard. In order to have...

For the price you pay in overpriced taganga we really liked here. our double room with bathroom was 50 000p. It was spacious and we had no qualms with the cleanliness at all. Granted its not brand new but I found that more charming than some of the more clinical alternatives. Our room was miles better than the one offered...

This hostel needs a lot of work and is pretty rundown, however, if you are on a budget its not bad. The staff are really nice and there is plenty of space. The 'pool' should be taken out as no one will ever use it (pretty gross), the showers aren't great, breakfast is not included, no air con, tv area...
