Quick note- if you get there from the Expreso Bavaro bus, ask for Plaza El Dorado as a stop, then you just walk down the street with Danny's pub on your right, and it's on your right. Gill was amazingly helpful!!! She called her trusted motoconcho driver to take me to and from a restaurant because my Spanish is wretched and I was nervous about the motoconchos. Great location, only a couple blocks from the beach. (Nite: the larimar resort doesn't use wrist bands..I hung there 2 days.)
room was very dirty (blood and footprints on the walls, broken fan)so we asked to clean it. The room was cleaned only partially so we still had to clean it ourselves! Than we noticed that some of our money were stolen from locked room (300$ out of 1000$; thief though we wouldn’t notice – the usual way when staff is involved in rubbery) The hostel managers said it’s impossible and probably didn’t believe us. Some of them said that our complain looks like we wanted to cheat them to earn some money

If this hostel wasn´t there, us backpackers wouldn´t have a place to stay in expensive PCana. Plus, it is within walking distance to a nice beach that is even safe to walk to, and be on, at night. This area of the DR is wall to wall resorts and fancy travelers so expect to pay more for everything from motos to food. The staff are very friendly and someone is always around. The kitchen is extremely tiny and a bit grotty, but bathroom was clean.
Planned to stay a week but after one day we decided to reduce our stay. The room was equiped with a cealing fan that sounded like an airplane, we couldn't have it on and it became too hot. The kitchen was very dirty and they didn't clean the apartment once. The staff was very friendly and you could ask anything. The location was okay, close to the ocean.

A really nice and friendly place, next to the beach and a cheap option to all that luxury-resort-hotels in this area. good wifi, lockers, friendly and helpful staff. from the airport it is possible to get there by bus for 2$ - but it is a long trip and you have to change the bus twice. taxis try to charge 20$ or more.
Should have a shower curtain in the bathroom. Make sure the person on reception is more knowledgeable about the area.
Great hostel with all you need really.
Would definitely stay here again. Everything was great!
in fact, it is a very cheap place to stay, for this area of the island. the staff was friendly, but couldn´t give us useful recommendations... all in all, i can recommend the hostel.
