This was by far the BEST hostel we've been in all of Bolivia and maybe even South America! I've never encountered such a clean place, there wasn't even a little bit of dust in the corners of the room. When we came to Santa Cruz we were disappointed from the city, but this hostel has pretty much everything you need...

We found this a nice place to relax for a few days in between our travels around South America. The staff here were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is great with fruit, toast and eggs. Pool is nice and the amenities are good.

We had a great couple of nights here. Its quirky, but clean and comfortable in the converted shipping containers! Either bunks or a double bed where preferred room situated in a little walled garden opposite the main hostal. Lounging and sunning facilities plus a pool in the main part and excellent breakfasts. There is also an on-site bar, pool table...

This hostel has a good atmosphere and a great breakfast. Our double room was a shipping container - very well equipped - one of three and in a nice quiet area across the road from the main hostel. Bed very comfortable and all spotless. An easy walk from the centre. Friendly staff and great 'happy hour'!

I'll start by accepting the good points about this hostel - very decent breakfasts, clean environment, nice pool, nice DVD room. However, I flat-out refuse to accept that that all of these admittedly very nice amenities warrant such high costs. Having travelled around South America for the past 3 and a half months, and Bolivia for one of those months,...

We arrived early in the morning from a long overnight bus ride from the Pantanal and this was like an oasis in the desert. They let us store our backpacks at 7am (check in 2pm), we went for breakfast down town and on return they let us use the showers, lounge and pretty much everything until our room was ready...

This hostel is very clean! They have a pool which is great since Santa Cruz is so hot! The hostel has a very friendly atmosphere but can get a bit loud on weekends. The staff is great at providing recommendations and advice. I stayed there a week and loved the breakfast. It was a bit pricier then the other hostels...

The private room that we had was below par, not a particularly comfortable bed and the fan sounded like a jet taking off an inch from your ear. The rest of the hostel was well equipped, comfortable, clean with a lovely pool area. Breakfast did include eggs to order which was a nice additional.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you want a couple of days chilling in the sun by the pool this is the perfect hostel for you! Come visit our backpacker luxury.The hostel started in 2006 and has established a well-balanced between fun and relaxation. We go according to the guests staying, if you want to have fun and party, we organized BBQ's by the pool “all you can drink and eat” for everyone to meet and have a good time. If you want to rest and relax just watching movies or having a drink at the poolside bar you can also do so. We have years of experience running a confortable, secure and spotlessly clean place with lots of tourist information for your travel. We are not the cheapest place in Santa Cruz, but definitely the best one! ... more   less
