The staff were very helpful at Che Lagarto, when I arrived tired and having traveled all night. They gave me a bed straight away. Also very clean and nice design. Really great breakfast too; love that chocolate carrot cake and good scrambled eggs.

Very good hostel near to the beach, just 5 minutes walking. Good rooms with AC. Just the mosquitos at night was a bad thing, we can't stay out of our room haha


Somehow the description mentioned I could pay in USD - when I wanted to pay in USD they did not accept it. Nevertheless it is a great hostel with great food and good facilities. I had a good time there. :D


V good value for $. Stayed in a 3 Bed private room. V clean and tidy + AC worked perfectly. Staff had our room cleaned and bedsheets/towels replaced promptly when asked. Really good pool as well. Hostel is walking distance from Sirena, beach and supermarkets. Closer than expected for all. Only downside is that there's a "new rule" that on wknds and holidays friends from ppl in the hostel cannot go inside. You might wanna consider that if you are expecting friends.


Just a few minutes away from the beach and close to a little supermarket. Pool is open all day and all night and someone is always in it. The beds are really noisy which is annoying but they are the beds of Che Lagarto. The key cards don't work anymore so the doors are permanently unlocked. Huge lockers for all your stuff and a very laid back staff. The AC works to perfection which is super important in this heat.


Very good budget option in Maresias!


The place is ok . Location is not so good , but you can go walking to the beach . The door of the private bathroom could not be closed, did not keep rested against, but the bedroom was commodious and the air conditioner was nice. There was a bit miry in the swimming pool.


This place turned out to be closer to the beach than other reviews made out, it has nice rooms and helpful friendly staff, good value for the price!


Generally really good, nice place, cool staff. But... Get a bar or release my options: if you're going to remove my choice to bring my own alcohol, then you need to put in a welcoming and well stocked bar, the existing setup is crap and solely a way to fleece more money from poor travelers. The water didn't work a few times too often . Get a plumber .


Very nice hostel, good rooms, good facilities and clean, very friendly staff. Only but : it is a bit far from the beach : about 15-20min walk depending on which part you want to go.


Nice hostel in Maresias. Is a bit of a walk to the beach but is good value, spotlessly clean and has a nice pool, great breakfast and good communal area with kitchen. Helpful staff too.
