After reading all the past reviews which rate this as a terrible hostel I left with no complaints. Breakfast is served everyday and they even ask before you venture out for the day if u ate. There are self service storage lockers with someone always on duty. Just lock up your valuables with your own lock and no problems whatsoever....

I wish I had read the reviews of this hostel before staying here! Our valuables were stolen from the locked storage room by a staff member and the owner took no responsibility whatsoever, not even giving the guy´s name to the Police. He also said this has never happened before but now that I have read previous reviews of Bayview...

Some of the things the hostel promises and completely and utterly fails to deliver: the hostel does not "include breakfast", there is none at all not even to pay for. There may be a TV room but no DVD player to play the "huge DVD library". There isn't a jukebox or video game consoles. While there is a hostel van...

By Taganga standards, this place is top notch. The pool here deserves about a million stars, and the common area was great, but the room itself left much to be desired (and by much, I mean all). The music was deafening until 2 am, the sheets weren't super clean and didn't stay on the uncomfortable bed, and the room was...

This place was the most horrible hostel in all of Colombia and Ecuador in our experience. Totally overpriced, noisy and uncomfortable. They don´t even give you towels! The sheets on the bed aren´t fitted, just top sheets so they slide when you are sleeping and you find yourself laying on bare yucky mattress!! DONT STAY

I stayed at the Bayview for nearly three weeks nearing the end of Nov 2010. At first I loved it- great pool, internet on site, "friendly" staff, a great movie room- the works! I even tried to get my buddies who were staying over at Tortuga to swap over. A couple days in, I started hearing stories from other backpackers...

I am unsure where to begin. The staff, the beds, the filth in my room, the location!! All of these things factored into my worst experience yet, please don't stay here people!

There´s very little ventilation in the rooms, even with two fans, it is very hard to sleep well in the heat. The swimming pool is a great way to cool off but you can´t sleep in the pool, can you? Also, once in a while, you´ll get a whiff of a nearby chicken coop, it lingers in the heat. Location...

Fantastic travellers’ hostel on the little road that comes down the hill straight in to Taganga. Run by a young Colombian couple called Syra and Santiago, they have really put a lot of effort in to getting this place right for travellers. It’s got a lovely pool which is immaculately clean with sun loungers and two water showers to stand...
