About Life Builder

A unique hostel offering accommodation with a purpose, Life Builder is run by a Christian NGO that uses the proceeds to fund its humanitarian and proselytizing mission.

Each room at this pet-friendly hostel features bunk-style accommodation with complimentary Wi-Fi. There are also family rooms with private or shared bathrooms.

Guests of Life Builder can get together and socialise in the communal lounge area. Furthermore, a garden and terrace are popular during the warmer months of the year. Views over the mountains can be savoured during all seasons from many areas of the hostel.

This non-smoking accommodation has a shared kitchen, as well as vending machines. Travellers are a short walk from nearby eateries such as Pollo Granjero and Deli Nice, located less than 700 metres away.

The hostel is located in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood filled with churches and ministries. La Aurora Zoo is about five kilometres north of the property, and La Aurora International Airport sets under a three-kilometre drive away.

Negative Reviews

On the basic side of things

Reviewers say the hostel's furniture and facilities are on the basic side of things. The beds are not very popular with reviewers, who say the mattresses could use an update and feel quite a bit past their date of expiration. Additionally, some visitors say the guest accommodations could stand to have an upgrade in their soundproofing as well.
