Totally loved this location of Bavaro Hostel nestled away amongst the high priced resorts. The staff were welcoming, very accomodating and meeting up with other travelers who had also found Bavaro Hostel for similar reasons was refreshing. I would make the trip again to Bavaro Hostel when in Dominican Republic. Travel to know yourself better

The owner was not the friendliest one the night we arrived. The reception was not open even though we indicated we were arriving fairly late in the evening. Luckily the cab driver let us use his phone to call the hostel and get them to open. The hostel needs some upkeep. Good location and awesome restaurant close by. Unfortunately the only real choice to stay in Bavaro on a budget.


Nice location, but the service of the staff was very poor


Lovely little place, glad we got the private room and was happily surprised it even had a couch! Lots of space, too bad we never had time to use the kitchen though. Kat's right next door is awesome and love their jalapeno sauce and burritos!!!! The little hut on the beach down the street that sells fish is awesome too!


Private bedroom. Everything was just perfect. Almost private bathroom. staff very nice and helpful. A great place to stay. Close to the beach and close to the drink point ;)


Great location and friendly staff, really helpful in guiding us around the area and recommending how to travel around the other areas of the DR! Only downside was on-and-off water source, with one bathroom things got a little gross quickly. But, Gill, the owner, was nice and offered an alternative place to shower. Large kitchen area enables cooking which is nice, a grocery store is nearby!
