The expat owner of this Zona Colonial oasis traveled the world for years observing what backpackers like. Then he found a derelict colonial abode from the 1600s and transformed it into the best hostel in Santo Domingo. From the comfy dorm beds and courtyard hammocks to the super chill bar and dipping pool, this is a true traveler's paradise.

The two-story building, which is also a Unesco World Heritage site, houses several dorms and private rooms, giving travelers options at different price points. Coffee and pancakes are provided each morning in a small kitchen in the leafy courtyard, and a full bar – along with a pool table and a dartboard – keeps the party going around the clock. The hostel also arranges all-inclusive day tours at bargain prices to attractions all over the country.
