          This place was very disappointing, and seems more geared towards the early twenties. The upstairs roof terrace is quite nice, as well as the communal parts in general. The dorms don't have enough power points or anywhere to put anything other than the floor. Also, some people seem incapable of having a shower without flooding the bathroom floor. People then walk in the bathroom, and spread muddy footprints all around the room. Not the hostel's fault that some people are so brainless, but all they have to do is put a mop and a sign about it in the bathroom. Perhaps no shoes in the dorm too. The kitchen is another thing that annoyed me. It is completely inadequate for the number of people using it; not enough cutlery, crowded etc. I needed rest when I got here, and it was very hard to find. It's not a wild party hostel, but there's always people around drinking, and nowhere to really find peace. I did meet some nice people here, otherwise I'd be inclined to score this with a two.

          They have a herd of cleaners working all times of the day keeping everything very clean. It's a very busy, very full hostel. Kelvin, the owner, is helpful and full of good tips for visiting the area.
          But we are an older couple who find climbing stairs difficult so our room was on the first floor-- a mistake. Some nights it was crazy noisy, others just moderately so as kids came in drunk at all hours.
          People on the second floor said their rooms were quiet and that's really my only complaint.

          This hostel was clean, well run, friendly and useful staff. The kitchen was large, and clean, plenty of room to cook your evening meals, it had a large living room area with sofas and TV, outside patio and lots of compute to use. The rooms were a good size and clean. It was also in an excellent location.

          We got a double private with en suite bathroom. The bed is allright and the shower is hot in the early morning. Fan and satellite tv provided. Internet not a good signal in room better in common areas. Lots of common areas. Good place to hang out, not a party hostel but can still enjoy a few beers til 1. Good area and close to metro.

          Good hostel,10 minute walk from metro, and short walk to Zona Rosa. Close to large exito supermarket, would recommend. Has ties with Real City tours, so has around 8 spaces for people to join the tour which is really worthwhile

          Nice hostel run by a kiwi guy, great location, good facilities, helpful, friendly staff. Really nice private rooms too with amazing showers. Not a party hostel but really sociable & only 10 mins walk from zona rosa where theres good nightlife.
          They have a local guy start his free walking tour (tips) from there every second day, see below (this is not to be missed)

About three hundred little yellow cars stood around, while their drivers gathered in small groups to chat. I got a prepaid taxi back to Hostal Sue. Being back there, my first port of call in Colum...
