The idea for the hostel was born on a trip with my partner to Playa Blanca where we had gone to run away from friends and family. When we arrived to the island, we loved the simplicity of the people and decided the same day stay in a hostel.
We had to share a bathroom, water was scarce, and they only gave us a bottle to bathe for the two of us. From the experience of lacking of amenities, we got our idea and concept Wata Hostel.
We began to plan the idea over the course of long night discussions. We investigated the world of hotels, and as we obtained more information, every night we fell in love with the issue again.
We decided to go and find a place for our hostel, we started by San Andres, an island that we had always liked for its culture, sea and gastronomy. To our surprise we started to realize that there were people with backpacks on their shoulders. This encouraged us a lot as we realized we had a segment of people who want to travel, meet and mingle with the investigating raizales and stay in a cheap place. As a result of our investigation we decided that would be our hostel which was built in San Luis, where the islanders live. Thus our travelers could actually meet and share with native islanders and take with a unique cultural experience.
Our guest house offers a choice of accommodation at low cost but with amenities; good mattresses, clean sheets, clean bathrooms, air conditioning, elements after a long day of sun and sand are indispensible to rest.
In Wata our guests can also prepare their food and interact with other travelers. Everything we have achieved this with days of hard work because we like perfection. We strive to be the best hosts for our customers and we are feel satisfied when they are happy.
We keep dreaming, and keep working with love. This is what keeps us alive and kept alive Wata Hostel!
