    Great place to be! If you are on a backpacking trip, especially by yourself, you will meet other travevellers to hang out and spend the day in Santo Domingo with, also in pandemic times. The hostel has a bar, nice common areas and even a small pool. I will definitely be back if I come back to Santo Domingo. The dogs and cat are a big plus, too! 🙂

    Das Island Life Hostel ist die perfekte Anlaufstelle in Santo Domingo. Innerhalb weniger Minuten erreicht man das Zentrum der Zona Colonial. Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber und gut ausgestattet. Mein Freund und ich haben hier 2 Nächte verbracht und waren sehr zufrieden mit unserem Aufenthalt. Die Atmosphäre im Hostel war sehr angenehm sodass wir uns entschlossen haben am Ende unserer Reise erneut im Island Life Hostel zu bleiben.

    I had an amazing stay at the island life Hostel. It is the best option if you want to meet travelers and backpackers. The hosts are super nice and helpful, the atmosphere is amazing and you get to know many people at the bar, or more the pool. With a 150 Peso Cocktail in your hand, you can spend the afternoon at the pool and chat or you can go explore the close City-Center. You will always find someone to go out with you and show you the hiden bar tips. Do not go if you are afraid of big dogs 😁

    Gemütliches Hostel mit sehr nettem und hilfsbereitem Personal! Die Bar bietet viel und wir konnten auch kurz vor Mitternacht noch etwas essen. Der kleine Pool ist super für eine Abkühlung nach Erkundung der Zona Colonial.

    Das Island life hostel bietet einen guten Start für Ankömmlinge in Santo Domingo. Das Frühstück war etwas einseitig und das Hostel dürfte sauberer sein. Vor allem die Küche für die Gemeinschaftsküche war echt eklig. Ansonsten waren die Mitarbeiter nett und die Atmosphäre war auch ok.

    The staff is friendly and gave us informations about travelling in DR and about public transportation. The breakfast is included and nice!! The ordered food was undercooked and expensive for the amount. We would recommend to eat outside.
