Good hostel with comfy beds. You need a padlock to lock in your stuff, something that they should write on the description on hostelworld. The volunteering staff is really nice and helpful! The breakfast is good, and so is the food at the Thai restaurant they got in the evening. It's clean and not a party hostel. Perfect location. I'm...

I planned to be few days at this hotel but I just ran away. Kitchen completely dirty and impossible to take a shower in the bathroom. People singing and talking at the corridors until 2am, bad experience. I do not recommend it at all.

I stayed for 3 days and actually wanted to stay for more. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was clean , the view was amazing and the rooms had a big locker with electronic spot inside so you can charge your phone while it's locked. The owner of the place treated us really nicely. And the restaurant on the top...

I stayed in one of the private rooms with a balcony for three nights. First, the good: the room was lovely, the bathroom outstanding, and the view across the lake was great to wake up to in the morning. However, all the noise from the third floor bar/patio funneled right into my room. The bar stops serving at midnight, and...

Hostel was ok. Owner was very nice and informative and he tried to make your stay as pleasant as possible. But that place is huge and without guests there's just no atmosphere. I was very clean tho, Colombian style. They had a really good restaurant which everyone raves about, but many times it was closed and then when you finally...

The Hostel was great. The view from the balkony is awesome (even without real view to the lake). Just on the cleaning they could improve a little. The Informations given by the owner were very helpful.

Immediately felt so welcome walking into Lake view...have enjoyed my stay so much that I've just missed my flight to Santa Marta to stay an extra 5 days before I fly home to England. The dorms are spacious, the place is beautiful and clean, especially the kitchen which is easy to use, cheap fruit and veg local. Been given heaps...

We also offer kayak and mountain bike rentals as well as self guided hikes and fishing. Our roof top restaurant THAI TERRACE is now open too, with an excellent selection of Thai, Vietnamese and vegetarian dishes. The restaurant also has a full bar.
