Number 1: Our dog is cuter than your dog…

1st Reason

This one is Schui (short for Schumacher)!

Number 2: Make that two dogs, actually.

2nd Reason

And our second hostel dog is a street dog called Hamilton we adopted. (He comes and goes because he’s wild at heart and he knows just about every other dog in Santo Domingo).

Number 3: We have got a pool and sun terrace

3rd Reason

The perfect place to cool off when it gets hot (and it does get hot in Santo Domingo!)

Number 4: We also have the friendliest, most helpful staff on the island and attract the best guests.

4th Reason

What can we say; greatness breeds greatness! ?

5: We have got hammocks aplenty…

We didn’t always look this good you know! But restoring this colonial building and turning into a hostel ourselves has been a rewarding project. Check the rest of our blog for a run-down of the process.
