An around the world trip that turned in to a dream! Chris and Katherine rebuilt an old ruins in the historical Colonial Zone and turned it in to Island Life Hostel. To learn the history of Island Life check out our blog!
Island Life Hostel is situated in a 400 year old Colonial Building just one and a half blocks away from the famous Plaza Espana. As a UNESCO heritage building it was painstakingly restored to its original glory.
I’ve had the privilege of staying in hostels all over the world and rarely can I be bothered reviewing them. This place is one of the few exceptions, it’s definitely in the top 3 I’ve stayed in. Class
Island life was one of the best hostel’s I’ve stayed in. Very social atmosphere with a bar, pool and pool table. The owner really takes great care to make it a fun and enjoyable place to spend time. The rooms are comfortable and clean with air conditioning at night. I would highly recommend this place to anyone coming to the DR.
One of those Hall of fame Hostels. The hostel has amazing athmosphere, and amazing staff. Specially the owner Chris takes care of everybody living in the hostel, and really makes your holiday better. Amazing place in middle of a lovely Zona Colonial. 5/5.
