This is a good budget option for someone with their own car or who doesn't mind an uphill walk from the bus stop - Use it as a base and spend your days elsewhere in Guadeloupe. The shared bathrooms/toilets are good and clean, but might get too busy if the dorm is full. Breakfast and communal dinners were good value...

Very pleasant stay at E.Gwada hostel, which provides a perfect base camp to visit Guadeloupe: It's clean, the whole team is friendly and obliging, and the atmospheres is stimulating for meeting people. Within two weeks, I've met people who were about to sail across the Atlantic Ocean and people with whom I visited the whole island, including the GR footpath....

I stayed at E.Gwada for two separate single nights in February while traveling through Guadeloupe. The hostel provides a pick up service for traveling back and forth to the airport. I enjoyed talking with fellow travelers there. Freddo and Malta (staff) treated me like a friend and it was appreciated. I would return again.

I stayed there for about a month last year. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. The host took several tours with us and helped us to get to know the island. We are absolutely thrilled by Guadeloupe and the service offered for a relatively cheap price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
E. Gwada Hostel is a youth hostel with a team of young and committed people. It is situated in Gosier, in the heights of St. Felix. Our location offers you a beautiful view on the sea, Basse-Terre and the south of Grande-Terre. The hostel was created to offer a lodging and catering for an accessible price so that everyone, regardless of his budget, to discover and experience this beautiful and wonderful island called Guadeloupe. At first we were only able to welcome 10, later 20 people in private rooms, dorm rooms and tents. Since July 2014 we opted for a traditional Creole villa with three levels. The rooms and the dorm room are bigger, the restaurant and bar are in progress in order to be able to receive even more guests. The swimming pool is expected to be operational in March. We accommodate guests from 16 to 99 years ... more   less
