Nice place to stay. As it was low season there was not much to do in town, but it is a nice hostel to stay. Breakfast is decent (cereals and bread with coffee/tea/milk). AC in the 10 bedroom dorm did not work and kitchen was dusty but for the rest it was a good place (good beds)

The staff was very helpful with getting around and planning where to go. Also had an energetic atmosphere where we were able to meet people from different areas. Also an adorable kitten to play with. We had a private double and was definitely worth the money that we paid. Overall fun hostel experience and plan to stay in other Viajero locations when traveling.

This is my review for the 6-bed girl's dorm. The beds were super comfy. Lockers were sturdy and large enough for a whole suitcase. The bathroom had modern plumbing and accents, and was cleaned daily. The kitchen was also very clean and had everything we needed to cook. All in all, it was a great experience! The staff manages to achieve the right balance between "party" and "rest"- there is entertainment (the pool table was a huge plus one rainy night!), but they don't carry on till late.

Very friendly staff who address each person by name--makes you feel welcomed! Beach is about a 10 minute walk away. No frills, basic amenities. Nothing spectacular but nothing terrible.

All in all a good choice. Tried several hostels in this city and would stay in this one again. Big minus: WIFI hardly ever worked. Receptionist told me in that case there were two many users (2 people in the lobby??).

Good location, staff were friendly, rooms were small, lockers were under the bed but then left no room to get around when you had opened it. Facilities were good but the TV was in the same room as the bar so if you wanted a quiet night in to watch TV you couldn´t. Ambiance was lacking, however nice hostel.

I had an excellent stay at Brava. I rated the security merely 'good' instead of excellent because they have little control over who walks in and out and the lockers are not very sturdy. Location is great--a five minute walk to the beach. Atmosphere is pleasant and it is easy to find people to hang out with. Cleanliness is good, too, with daily cleaning of dorms. It is very noticeable that it is a chain in a good way--things work. I would recommend El Viajero.

The hostel is nice and clear. The kitchen is ok and large. The tables to sit are not so many, which could case some problems. We were a bit disapointed because it is not that near from the center nor beach but still ok in a way but as we askes for the balls to play tackets on the beach, they hadn't same for the billard balls. Well not really amusing. The rate is high for a hostel. We found for the last 2nights a hotel in the center for nearly the same rate (twinbed, with private badroom).
