I stayed at Pelikan Hostel for 5 nights with a friend, and it worked out great for us. We had a private room and bath, and A/C too. Breakfast isn't included, but it's cheap if you want it there. There are also a lot of places in town to get breakfast too. The room was cleaned daily, it wasn't loud at night, and the staff are nice. It's also a very nice location, just a block off the main street and beach, and next to the police station.

Didn't get through the door. Booked on minihostels.com for six days over new year and paid a deposit. When we arrived pelikan said they did not deal with minihostel and that they were booking people without authorization. But luck would have it, our rooms were available, just at a much higher price than we had booked at, and is quoted in this years lonely planet. The guy dealing with.us initially spoke English until it was convenient to not. Finally the owner came and kept telling me the price advertised was their price 8 years ago despite a number of up to date sources quoting it. All felt a but if a con and we left still unsure if we'll get our deposit back.
If going to stay here don't book online.

Private rooms available, although they will charge you per person. It is easy to find, right at the entrance to town, and there is an ATM machine next door. Good breakfast on pretty front porch with hammocks. We were without water and electricity for a few days, and this seems to happen often. Most of the building is open air, so very hot and humid, although there are ceiling fans in some rooms. Very close walk to beach and restaurants.

Reading some of the reviews of Taganga you could quite easily get put off going there if you believe it's party town reputation, however this hostel means you can enjoy the best of Taganga, but still get a good nights sleep!
Located 100m form the seafront means you only have a short walk to the restaurants and beach bars and if you head in the other direction you've got a 250m walk up the hill to the so called party hostels where you can enjoy a beer or two in their bars.
The other positive is it's minutes from a lovely little coffee shop you can go to for breakfast called Cafe Bonsai http://cafebonsai.com/
This is a lovely town, so much more than it's party reputation, Hostel Plican lets you enjoy it!
