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.

This is a good place to party. The parties on friday nights are definately worth going too. I found the owner, Santiago to be very hospitable. Above and beyond how other owners have been. The rest of the staff are very nice too.

My only gripe was that the rooms were hot, and that if you have a room on the ground floor you may have a problem with ants. if staying in a dorm I recommend the one with air con.

After reading all the past reviews which rate this as a terrible hostel I left with no complaints. Breakfast is served everyday and they even ask before you venture out for the day if u ate. There are self service storage lockers with someone always on duty. Just lock up your valuables with your own lock and no problems whatsoever. This staff was English speaking and extremely helpful with information on taganga, getting to the park, as well as booking any further travels. Diego, the owner of the hostel, has definitely sorted this place out and is a good place to stay. Great place to stay up talking til the wee hrs of the mrng by the pool.

I wish I had read the reviews of this hostel before staying here!

Our valuables were stolen from the locked storage room by a staff member and the owner took no responsibility whatsoever, not even giving the guy´s name to the Police. He also said this has never happened before but now that I have read previous reviews of Bayview I realise it is a much more common occurance than we thought.

In addition, there are loud parties every Friday that are open to anyone off the street, there is a lot of drug dealing going on by the owner and staff, and rooms are like concrete boxes (though this could be the least of your worries).

Again, DONT STAY HERE
