The hostel was infested with bedbugs. I stayed on a female shared bedroom and the girls had bites all over their bodies. When I told the staff about the problem they did not do anything, they offered me to stay in a private bedroom and did not give me any discount.

It is a very good hostel to meet different people and hang out. There is a bar on the roof top, so things get easier when you have a place to hang out after all day long. There are a lot of steps, so don't bring a really heavy carry on, otherwise you will have some difficulties. The hostel is...

I've been a week in El Viajero in San Andres Island and I'm disappointed about the crew that runs the business. Unfortunately El Viajero actually fights with bedbuggs that bite my whole body. And it's not only in one bed, almost in all of them! Conditional air didn't work one night and one time water droped of, informing the reception...

Although dorm beds are more expensive than hostels in the rest of Colombia ... this is San Andres... and it is pretty much the cheapest option on the island. The staff were incredibly helpful. They got me good rates on diving and bikes (a little cheaper than on the street). The rooms and linen were clean. What impressed me was...

The staff and guests were very friendly. The location was great. It was in the center of the town and a short walk from the beach. Other guests had an issue with bed bugs but I did not and the staff handled the situation well. It's a hostel, not a hotel, but it was very good for what it was/what...

Due to availability issues I've been in both hostels on the island: El Viajero and Blue Almond Hostel. Compared to Blue Almond one El Viajero is very close to the center with lots of guests from various countries which helped a lot to create a cozy, exciting mood. The hostel is part of the YHA association, but I didn't get...
