The hostel itself is very cool. Ac dorms, swimming pool, WiFi, Bar, and all someone can ask for. When I went it was almost empty but is supposed to be very funny and have a lot of parties. Staff was the worst thing. They just dont care about people. They make you feel as if you owe them sth. As...

The Benjamin is very popular with Israelis out of the army letting loose. I spent three days here, and load Israeli techno music blared every night until 5 am.

The pool is a nice touch and the third floor hammock area gets you some AMAZING ocean breezes. The staff is pretty easy going and with the exception of the lady working nights,...

Spent one night in Benjamin in Taganga and I wished I stayed there few more nights. The place is incredibly nice. Newly built with a huge pool and a roof terrace. Nice clean rooms with running hot water (apparently it is not an option in many places). Good sized beds. Two minute walk to the beach. Taganga is small, it...
