    Our Hostel is a British/ Dominican owned hostel located in the heart of the Colonial Zone in Santo Domingo on the stunning island of Dominican Republic.

    We offer more than just accommodation, we deliver an experience. Only a couple of minutes' walk and you are at the famous Parque Colon, Plaza Espana, bars, clubs and restaurants that the Zona Colonial has to offer.
    We are a fun, comfortable and safe place where you can meet other like minded travellers. The Dominican Republic has so much to offer, alot more than just beaches - although we have to say they are pretty awesome. Whether you are an adrenaline junkie or are here to explore the city, our tour desk can help you find what you are looking for.

    We have been open for over 9 years now having won the Hostelworld award for best hostel in Dominican Republic for the last four years in a row!

    Our aim is to create a haven for backpackers and travelers in the heart of the Caribbean: clean, safe and fun accommodation which won’t break the bank.

    Our Hostel offers mixed dormitory accommodation with shared bathrooms, as well as private ensuite rooms at great rates you will not find elsewhere in the capital.
