Why stay at El Viajero Hostels?


All good backpackers share a same philosophy: make friends, get to know other cultures and make our culture known. Our philosophy looks after giving you what we look for when we travel: let ourselves know, be treated as a friend and live a new experience in each place we visit.


Our main goal is your fun both inside and outside hostel, for this we organize daily activities for you to integrate and for you to have a memorable experience. We believe it’s essential for the backpacker to know the local people and culture. That’s why our staff efforts every day to give you the best information and advices of everything that is happening in the city.


Besides the best attention it’s essential you have the best service. Starting from the bed and bedroom: our mattresses are of the highest quality and the bedrooms have AC and heating for you to sleep comfortably. Cleanliness is our obsession. All of our Hostels are Hostelling International Members and in 2011 international auditors certified al our hostels under the conditions of HI QUALITY.


To help you know the culture and the local costumes it is important to have a local staff. 95% of your staff is native and in our selection and training it’s a prerequisite to share our philosophy of treatment and concern for the guest. All our receptionists are English-Spanish bilingual and most of them study Tourism. All the managers of the Hostels were receptionists once; this generates in El Viajero a culture of personal and professional growth that motivates all our team to improve each day!
