This hostel is simply PERFECT! Looking for a negative point... but nothing ! Very clean, original and perfect location !!!! Celine and Sri are adorable, will always recommend you nice things to do, or anything you need! So sad I had to leave! Definitely recommend this place and will for sure go back there! Perfect place for surfers


Very cool little hostel. Very chilled and quiet, as close to the beach as you can get in Dominical- in front of a good break. Perfect for those who are surfing and relaxing. The hostel is very well looked after, always clean.


If I could have given this hostel a better rating than 100, I would have. Staff is so friendly, and helpful. Place is so clean, comfortable and nice. It's the perfect atmosphere... I will be back :)

Very cool hostel. Can't beat the price or location (proximity to the beach). My only complaint would be the lack of a working fan near my bed, which made for a hot stuffy night of sleep. But the mosquito netting was great. I would definately recommend the hostel to a friend and I'll stay there again if I pass through Dominical.

Sri wasn't around much but the volunteers Kaycee and Abby were amazing. Super friendly and willing to give any advice or answer any question. They actively cleaned and kept the place looking as good as they could.
