I've been working and traveling for four years now and have stayed at many hostels. This is definitely one of the worst hostels I've ever been to. If you want to get somewhat of a decent sleep then please do not stay here. First, the mattresses are indeed rock hard (and the hotel's excuse that they are new makes no...

After going to El Viajero Cartagena and loved it, we thought it would be the same in San Andres, but no: the attendance is very poor (except for one or two hosters), the bathrooms are disgusting since morning (they only clean it once a day) and the shower is weaky and desalinated (you take a bath and still feel dirty)....

El Viajero is a very good option in San Andres. Good location, helpful staff and a joyful enviroment. Being there was a nice experience. There is a big kitchen, a TV Room and a bar / terrazza on the higher floor. Laundry services are cheap (COP $ 8000,00 per kilogram). I would love to go back do San Andres and...

This is a party hostel, so if you are looking for a party this is the place to be with their rooftop bar. I slept in this 8 bed dorm. The beds were surprisingly good and the rooms get cleaned every day. But you can imagine that the things you do in San andres involves sand, so that's what you...

El Viajero is probably one of the best options when wanting to sleep fairly cheap and stay in San Andres. My experience was positive in terms of that the rooms had AC, my bed was clean and the location is good (10 minute walk to the beach). On the negative note, the beds are super hard, my room was freezing...

The staff seemed nice and the location was ok. Unfortunately, they have a massive bedbug problem. The two nights that I was there were dreadful. People were moved rooms etc, but all of them had beds with dots of blood where previous guests had been bitten. I understand it can be difficult to get rid of them, however, I won't...

Really hard matress, which does not fit in the case. If you checkout in this hostel, the people don't want you around. I was not even allowed to go upstairs to get a friend from the room. This happened in the daytime, so there is definetly no reason for this. This hostel wants your money instead of providing nice hospitality....

Sorry, but we dont understand your review: The matresses maybe a little hard because they are absolutely NEW. And if you made your check out, you cant come back in the rooms. Its for your own safety and others.... sorry :(

I was on vacation in San Andres Island last week and I did my reservation in advance at this hostel. My big surprise was to find a really dirty facility, bathroon absolutely unhygienic, and the worst: bed bugs on mattress and sheets :-( No recommendable at all.

The hostel isnt the best hostel out there, but if you consider it is almost the only hostel in the island it make sense to be good enough. Nice and cheap way to spend days in san andres. nice location as well.
