First Curacao Hostel Reviews

The Ritz Village Hostel is a hostel and village in Curacao, the Dutch island in the Caribbean. Curacao is not a backpacker destination, but more a place where Dutch or American people go on holiday. There are not many hostels available and The Ritz Village is one of the few places.

The Location

It is located very centrally, a few minutes' walking from the center of Willemstad, capital of Curacao, and all point of interest. The bus station of Punda, which is the one the you get when arriving from the airport, almost the only way to reach the island, is only a few minutes' walking from the hostel. A taxi to the airport instead takes half an hour or a bit less.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Rooms have four beds and they are located in a specific area of the place, which is also a hotel and a village. Mattresses are comfy and there’s air conditioning to refresh the air as it gets very hot. The rooms are quite small but ok for only four people. There are lockers but you need to have your own padlock. There is also a table and two chairs in each room. The bathrooms are shared with everybody in the hostel, and toilets and showers are separated. Everything is clean.

Common Spaces

There is a jacuzzi open all night and chairs and sofas around it. There is also a little kitchenette with only a boiler, a toaster, and a fridge -- it's not possible to cook a proper meal then. It is nice that they give each customer a free ice cream at check-in and check-out. The staff are very nice and help a lot giving tips on what to do. It’s hard to find backpackers in the hostel; it is mostly for people that have work to do or digital nomads. There is not much atmosphere or interacting with the other guests, but the common areas around the jacuzzi is cool to just tan and relax.


All in all, it is probably one of the best hostel available in Curacao. Backpackers don’t really visit the island, so it is very hard to find them anywhere else. The hostel gives a good vibe for relaxing a few days on this expensive island for those traveling on a budget.
