    First of all, came here for 3 nights and ended up extending up to 2 weeks. The location is perfect, not much around it but you don’t need it with a hostel like El Rio. The place is well build and well organised, the staff and volunteers are amazing and there is a great atmosphere every day. Most days there is a dj and the music is good, no bullshit reggaeton but quality house and techno. Loved the place, next time I come as a volunteer.

    Quite a party hostel when you’re there on the right night, but also a beautiful place during the day. People are super nice and the food is amazing.

    The staff makes this place the special place it is - big up to Hugo, Michael & Del. Rio brings along good vibes, nice music & decent food. Would love to have stayed for longer and would come back in a heartbeat. Only issue is that you have to be in luck to be there during a party night, worth targeting a weekend. Would also highly recommend going to play with the kids as part of the rio foundation!

    Op basis van ervaringen van andere backpackers had ik een hostel verwacht waar je leuke feestjes kon hebben. Echter, tijdens de nachten dat ik er was leek het personeel hier niet echt zin in te hebben. Zelfs na meerdere vragen over andere muziek, volume of licht gaf het personeel aan hier geen zin in te hebben. Uiteindelijk met de halve groep naar een ander hostel gegaan voor een feestje. Locatie is top, je kan er prima ontspannen. Maar houd er rekening mee dat feesten niet standaard is.

    The hostel is really nice, the atmosphere is good. It is a social environment to meet new people and the food is also good enough. What to improve: I went to the party on thursday and the music at the party was really really bad. I was so disappointed to be honest. It was so hard to dance on. The DJ did not check the crowd at all, if they liked it or not. I am normally never bored at a party but I was now. I have talked so much to people just because the music was that bad. + clean bathroomsmore
