Bona Vida Hostel La Tercera

Top choice hostel in Riohacha
Image by

La Bona Vida is so good that it had to add a second branch in 2017, only a year after opening the first. Behind the turquoise colonial facade lies a diminutive, well-laid-out interior sporting dorms (with curtained bunks and personal fans) and private doubles (with air-con and – drumroll – Netflix!).

But this place is about the little details: freebies at half-a-dozen local restaurants, straight-off-the-hot-plate breakfasts, dinner on demand, and super-quick laundry service. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys. Best hostel on Colombia’s Caribbean coast? Possibly.

The new branch of the hostel, Bona Vida Quinta, offers the same fabulous deal a couple of blocks away.
