Tower Bridge Backpackers

My wife and I spent eight nights here from Jan24 to Jan31 this year . We were clearly the oldest guests here and we were treated really well by all of the staff and all of the guests. This property does it right and runs a great operation.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Tower Bridge Hostel has nice surroundings and the general facilities are alright.
With that said, it is located far from everything and you'll have to take a cab to go anywhere and back again. If the room and personnel then was nice and service minded, and would make you feel welcome, that would've been fine. The problem is that, that was not the case.

Overall the personnel was okay. It just seemed many times that they didn't really care and didn't really were on top of everything. We would ask them something and they would often answer with short answers with a kind of irritated tone in their voice. Which in my opinion is not okay. Furthermore, nobody spoke spanish. Like not even a single word.

The worst part though was the room. At least the one we were staying in. I can't say if the same applied to all of the rooms, but the one we stayed in was disgusting.
First of all it wasn't really finished. THe bed was all crooked, so we had to change our sleeping position so we didn't sleep with our heads downwards. Overall it was clean, but filled with mosquitos. The worst part though was the bathroom. The shower and toilet was only separated from the actual room by a wall with no door. If that wasn't enough, there were no curtains and as the bathroom was right at the entrance everyone could practically see you shower. There is a little wall that supposedly covers your upper body, so only your head is showing. But if your just a little tall it doesn't work.

Overall I would recommend every other hostel.
We were supposed to stay there for to nights, but we stayed just one and left to Zicatela beach to stay at a hostel called pako lolo - It was really good, clean and cheap!

Peace

My stay at Tower Bridge has amazing! They have lots of rooms varying in size and price. They have a pool table as well as ping pong for your entertainment. Many many hammocks and lounge chairs surround the jungle like setting. There's a perfectly sized pool in the middle of the property, it's like a little lagoon with ideal water temperature. There's common areas with comfy couches and chairs, board games, magazines and books. They have a delightful outdoor bar adorned with Beatles posters and hanging surfboards. There's hammocks and couches in the bar as well. They always have cold beer and an ever increasing stock of booze and mixers. The bartender will make you anything you want at a much cheaper price than the bars in town or at the beach. They play great music all the time and you can most likely plug in
your own iPod at the bar if it's not loaded with rubbish. There's a large shared kitchen area with two refrigerators, pots and pans, plates, bowls, and all the utensils anyone needs. There's an open air built-in BBQ for your grilling purposes. Oh yeah, they have free wi-fi and cable tv, I watch a little ESPN sometimes. The best beach I've personally ever been to is a ten minute walk, it's magnificent. The big market is only a few blocks up the street, they have the best prices. There's countless restaurants within walking distance of Tower Bridge and taxis never ever cost more than 20-25 pesos to go anywhere in Puerto. It's very secure also. There are steel doors on the entry, safes and padlocks for your room. It's monitored 24/7 with security personell. I really do love the vibe at T.B., I may never leave. It's ideal for anyone who likes fun and sun. I'm here alone but would have no problem bringing my kids here. The owner Steve is very cool, his brother Chris always has a story to tell and the rest of the staff make this oasis even better. I highly recommend Tower Bridge, this is the best hostel experience to date for me.

I stayed for six nights with a varied amount of travelers coming in and out. Steve, the owner, Cecelia and Carla are very gracious and helpful. The atmosphere is lively and comfortable. Carizilillo, the nearest beach is one of the most beautiful in the area. I enjoyed my stay and encourage others to come and take advantage of this affordable and well run hostel.

The hostel was a solid place. The beach is not too far about a ten minute walk and the facilities are good. The beer is at a great price, and Aaron makes some pretty good cocktails.

I stayed here for one week and it was a very easy place to stay, you could stay for 2-3 weeks and just chill out. It def has that vibe to it, great little lagoon swimming pool, free internet and pool, massive TV all set in a bungalow style. It could be upkept abit better, but overall I would stay here again. Steve the owner is a character, from England when he is there, a good guy. Overall I was very happy with my 7 days there, and would recommend it.
