While doing some benchmarking on the web I found out that a new hostel is soon opening in San Andres in SEP 2011. This is great news for the island and we welcome them with open arms, as backpackers are a market that has been historically neglected in San Andres and to everyone's surprise is a very profitable and low impact niche.
What I find unacceptable, borderline offensive is that they claim they will be the first; therefore the only hostel in the Island. This is simply a BIG LIE and a example of unethical and irresponsible marketing, we have been in business for almost a year and not even us were the first hostel in San Andres at that time. With this post We don't mean to pick up an argument, we just think people should get the facts straight.
