the internet was not very good, but ok for a desert.
Great staff, location is fine. Not very comfortable for hanging out. The furniture needs to be replaced and the showers could be better. Pretty clean though.
We had a room of 6 and it was disgusting. The roof was dirty and it was too small. There's not enough of toilet for the hostel, internet wasn't good and people stole our food everyday. Not my best stay in an hostel. But, the terrace is really nice!
I was not too amused waking up in the night and had a cat in my bad... But all in all it was a calm hostel.
Nice no-nonsense hostel. Lives up to its name; really good for backpackers (don´t expect highclass tourism in San Pedro anyway). Warm shower a bit unreliable. WiFi generally suitable for light surfin, but excellent for a desert. Despite the insructory e-mail sent by the Hostel, it is hard to find for the first time as there is no clear indication of the hostel whilst standing in front of it; paint the door ;-)
Booked the night but didn't end up staying as we were moving on from San Pedro. Staff allowed us to use the facilities and charge us for the night. Clean and relaxed hostel.
This hostel is fine and probably one of the cheaper in San Pedro. The wifi was really good. Not all the bathrooms were working and we had to ask the staff to re-stock the toilet paper on several occasions.
The doors to your rooms can be opened with a butter knife.. And they are not all the special. But the beds are good, the hammocks are life savers and even the pool is great to cool you down on a hot day. Kitchen is fully loaded with most things you need and if you feel the need you can crack up a BBQ or a campfire and sit round and have a few drinks.. There is not all that much going on at the hostel but it's not bad for what it is..
Just like San Pedro, this hostel is bad value for money. Room was very small, door didn't close very good and bathroom was not very clean. On the other hand, staff was quite nice and atmosphere was good. Bonfire at night is a big plus.
Lovely relaxed hostel with very friendly staff.
Nice chilled out hostel a bit out of town. Staff were friendly, bathrooms clean and kitchen was well equipped.
That hostel is incredible, very rustic but at the same time very comfortable, and the the staff is really nice! The only problem is that the wifi connection is not very good, I got some problems a few times to connect and stay connected. But besides that, everything else is great

I booked a room with 2 beds, but we only got one bed. The most frustrating part was, however, the discussions with the staff as they tried to convince us, that we were in the wrong. We took the room for a night, it was very small and cold. We both had a cold the next day. Then we moved.

Ok hostel. Wifi pretty bad but same problem everywhere in San Pedro.
Good hostel- really not far from the center, do not worry. Great outside area with hammocks and sun beds and pool (a tub). I would recommend looking in town for better deals on tours. Overall really pleasant stay. Staff were friendly. Beware of the 12am lights out rule- not a deal breaker but funny to watch the attempts at staying up (not hard)
I really liked this place. It was clean, felt safe and had a very social vibe over it. Only thing was that its a bit too noisy at night and the walls are a bit too hear through, so bring ear plugs. its also about a 10-15min walk from the main street, but thats alright. I enjoyed my stay here and the staffs very nice as well
The two kitchens were awesome when cooking as it never got too crowded. The pool is more of a tots pool. The outdoor seating was awesome, great view of the stars! The rooms were small, and we don't think the sheets were changed. The staff were super helpful with directions and activities.
Carlos is very helpful and patient. Nice kitchen facilities. It´s 10 mins walk to the city center so it´s quiet at night. The highlight of this place is always easy to talk to other travellers because they have lots of common area to hang out. Downside is the wifi is not working most of the time. And too many flies around kitchen. But overall it´s a good stay.
Nice Hostal with superfriendly stuff and warm and comfy beds. However, WiFi is superslow, so if you have some work (like VCs) you'll have to go to the internet-Café in town. The hostal had two nice yards with matresses for sun-bathing and even a small Swimmingpool. Two kitchens are convenient and five bathrooms should also be ok, though during rush hour in the morning you sometimes have to wait. The location is a bit outside of town, however still close to the market and the bus station.
