Great place to stay, very friendly staff.


Carlos House is a nice little hostel, the perfect place to stay if you want to stay in a quiet place and simply enjoy your beach holiday.


More of a guesthouse than a hostel, more suitable for couples. Clean and comfortable rooms with shared bathroom. The decoration is old but the place is very clean. Nice rooftop terrasse. Just steps away from the busy streets of the center, you can easily walk everywhere. Carlos was very welcoming and gave us good reccomandations on places to visit upon arrival.

Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it a lot. Location is great and is not too far away from the city center and all the beaches. We arrived later at night by bus and couldn't find a taxi that would take us because we had a lot of luggage. We called Carlos and he was there to pick us up from the bus station personally which we were really thankful for. Staff were all great and answered all the questions we had. Great stay!!!


I loved my stay at Carlos house, it was perfect!


The hostel is more like a guesthouse, regarding atmosphere and facilities. Its all clean and nice, just not so much of interacting with other guests. The owner Carlos is really friendly and takes time to give advice for your stay. Our room was in a kind of basement. So no nice view and the roof terrace was 3 levels above. Besides that it got a bit cold during the nights and we wish we've had more blankets.
