Jodanga Backpackers Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

If you want a couple of days chilling in the sun by the pool this is the perfect hostel for you! Come visit our backpacker’s Luxury Hostel!

The place where I grew up is now home for backpackers visiting Santa Cruz. The hostel started in 2006 and has established a well-balanced between fun and relaxation. We go according to the guests staying, if you want to have fun and party, we organized BBQ's by the pool “all you can drink and eat” for everyone to meet and have a good time. If you want to rest and relax just watching movies or having a drink at the poolside bar you can also do so. We have years of experience running a confortable, secure and spotlessly clean place with lots of tourist information for your travel. We are not the cheapest place in Santa Cruz, but definitely the best one!

Spacious Dorms with A/C*, Comfy Beds, Continental Breakfast Buffet with delicious fruit, natural juices and a person that cooks fresh eggs the best way you like them in front of you and at the precise minute you want them. Fancy nice scramble eggs?

Self-catering kitchen, computers with Internet and WiFi, BOOK EXCHANGE, laundry service, SPANISH LESSONS, ADVENTURE JOURNEYS and lots of Tourist information. Bilingual and very friendly staff willing to help you 24 hours with everything you may need.

Strategic location between the Bus Station (18 minutes walk - 5 min by taxi), Local Airport “El Trompillo” (15 minutes walk - 5 min by taxi) and City Center Main Plaza (about 25 minutes walk -10 min by taxi for less than 2 USD).

Located in a residential neighborhood inside the center of the city the hostel is an Island free of traffic jams, noisy cars and pollution. At only one block of distance of the largest and most important Green Park of the City. Close to the hostel you are going to find restaurants, fast food venues, street vendors, supermarkets, market, banks, ATMs, pharmacies, cinema and everything you need

This hostel is about relaxation, meeting other travelers, experiencing the tropical beauty of Santa Cruz and its hectic nightlife. Jodanga is the best starting point for exploring all that the city and surrounds has to offer so come, feel at home and have an awesome time with us!

*The Air Conditioner is on from 11pm until 7.30am
