El Viajero San Andres Hostel & Suites is a party hostel in the center of town, close to the beach. El Viajero is a chain hostel, where you can meet lots of travelers from all over the world.
El Viajero is easy to reach by taxi coming from the airport within no more than ten minutes. There is also a local bus taking guests to downtown San Andrs, which might take a little longer. The hostel is perfectly located in the center of town; the street offers a supermarket close by and various shops as well as duty-free shops. The beach and the harbor are only a few blocks away from the hostel and in walking distance. At nighttime, guests can go to the restaurants, bars, and discotheques at the beach, but it is recommended to take a taxi back at night.
Rooms and Bathrooms
El Viajero is quite big and offers a variety of rooms. Rooms are spread over three floors. Eight-bed mixed dorms are the most common ones, but they also offer twin private and double rooms. Rooms have air conditioning. Lockers are placed under the dorm beds so backpacks are not in the way (guests need to bring their own lock). Every dorm has its own small bathroom with a toilet and shower, which is cleaned every day.
El Viajero is a social hostel with a huge amount of social space. Downstairs is a large, well-equipped kitchen with two fridges for guests. Next door is a TV and chill-out room. One floor above, guests will find the reception, sofa, and a board with listings of activities offered by the hostel. On other floors are huge balconies and computers. On the upper floor is a pirate themed bar with a fantastic view over the ocean. At night, it gets very social and the bar turns into a party place for all guests. Once in a while, the hostel offers salsa and bachata dance lessons. Free breakfast is offered every morning at the bar on the upper floor. Free and strong Wi-Fi is available on all floors.
This is a good hostel with lots of common spaces and great location. Guests will enjoy it if they like to party and have a good time.
