“A good hostel”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

I found Bayview to be a really nice and chill hostel. Clean and chilly dorms with AC, a pool, pool table and Direct TV made our stay very comfortable. I stayed for a week, a little bit more than I planned for and haven't got any complaints really...The staff have been nice and helpful and It's not too far to the beach.. An allover good hostel!

Bayview is a nice place a few minutes walk from the beach in the lovely town of Taganga. Me and a friend stayed in a doorm with A/C. New sheets every day, A/C working really well and bathroom okay. I really enjoyed the pool (big one) and the relaxing area had a huge flatscreen tv with tons of channels. Overall I had a really good relaxin stay what was all I wanted when I came there. If you're looking for a relaxing and nice stay In Taganga I can recommend it, no bad experiences came in my way!

An alright hostel in a good location. The pool and hostel could do with lots of fixes. The breakfast was small and never ready by 7.30 or even 8.
But the rooms have air con... And if you can get the dorm at the top of the stairs the balcony overlooks the bay and the local football field. We spent all weekend watching sunsets, football and drinking beer.

Room Tip: Top of the stairs dorm room of 6 beds. Best view.

Bayview is a nice and clean hostel, but don't expect anything fancy. Breakfast is minimal, the pool area unattractive and the staff don't make any effort to make you feel at home. A great television room though, which is great if you want to relax after a trip to Ciudad Perdida, and a nice location right in between the beach and the marvelous kitchen of Casa Felipe. We paid 22.000. Laundry service was 10.000.

We had a walk around town to find a decent hostel and immediately liked Bay View, from the bright exterior to the huge and spotless pool and the perfect English speaking owner Santiago. Once in we got the feeling we were special, I imagine just like anyone else staying, and it felt great, especially after some of the treatment we had encountered previously.

The hostel is well situated within 5 minutes of the beach and the town. It has an airy spacious feeling with comfortable rooms and beds, a big TV room, good kitchen, Bar, free Book swap, good accessable wi-fi, breakfast is decent too, excellent common area partly shaded with a pool table and table soccer and an amazing pool (the best pool we have seen in any hostel). The staff do a great job of keeping everything clean, even down to the daily pool clean! The atmosphere is great, with plenty of chance to get to know the other guests as well as the likeable staff.

Santiago used to be a Diving instructor and is extremely knowledgable on the local dive shops, he even has an arrangement with Octopuss Diving (the best dive school in town), he doesn't push it though. The hostel is also reknown for it's Friday night parties, which are excellent, especially when Santiago puts the bar-b-que on, he even has live bands playing!

After a few days we had a quick look on here and were amazed to see some of the negative reviews, something must have changed as we spent quite a bit of time in the hostel (that dang pool) and saw everything was being run extremely professionally.

We ended up spending a week here and had a wonderful time, and should we ever return to Taganga we will definately stay here.

A couple of the dorms have aircon but the privates don't, but it didn't bother us as they have fans which do the job just fine.

Thanks Santiago and all your staff.
