We checked in on a Friday...pool party day. Room close to pool on ground floor. Desperately loud, awful music blaring. Reception made a mistake with room. We moved to a room upstairs. Equally as disrupted by the bad music. Air conditioning did not work. Changed room again. 1 member of staff was pleasant. Felt totally uncomfortable in this place. 24...

We went to a Taganga and heard a lot about this place, since it's an Israeli place and a lot of the Israelis are going there. I would never go there again and would never recommend it. Positive- the room had air conditioning , which is one of the most important things in Taganga. That was all that was positive...

Amazing facilities at the hostel the pool is great, rooms are clean and for extra cost you can get air con rooms, wifi worked in the rooms and there's an awesome hammock area. Staff let down the hostel they seemed very disinterested and unhappy to serve. We were there in low season so only about 10-15 people there at one...

This hostel has a really great pool, and great location. That being said, the staff sucks.. at everything. We stayed here 5 days and our room literally was mopped maybe once, and not actually cleaned. We had to buy our own toilette paper, and soap because they just didn't stock any. We party like everyone else, and enjoy sleeping in...

In all honesty, this place has the potential to be a fantastic hostel/hotel as it has absolutely everything, from decent rooms & entertainment (pool table, bar, playstation etc.) to a gym and small football/basketball court. The food served was surprisingly good and in high season, I suspect this place will be ram-packed and probably well suited to a party crowd....
