We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel. At first, we were concerned about its location because it is about 5-10 mins away from downtown San Pedro and the roads to get there are very dark, but the town is pretty safe. The staff was great, the night we got there they had a problem with our reservation but they fixed it for us right away. Also, they allowed us to stay in the hostel much later than our check out time. They are very friendly and enjoy spending time with their guests.

Please, please enforce the quiet hours. Often there would be loud music in the courtyard until 2 a.m. when people had to get up for excursions that began at 5 a.m. Overall the sleeping situation was very unpleasant. The bunk beds were rickety. Every time I moved the slightest bit the top and bottom bunk shook.


This hostel isn't in the heart of the town, but its definitely more economical for the budget traveller and it doesn't hurt to have a little walk. The kitchen is extremely equip and there's an obvious community vibe which I liked. The downside is there's no lockers, and the rooms don't lock.


Really nice hostel & friendly staff. The one big negative, however, was that one of the beds in our room looked like someone had slept in it & was covered in hair. When we asked if it could be remade, one of the members of staff couldn't see what the fuss was about & said "so you're going to make the bed yourselves, right?" Shame because everything else was great!


The hot water was not available in all of the showers, at some point at night there was no water available. It was not very convenient that there was only one key for the 4 beds room. However, overall atmosphere is really nice.

The staff is very friendly but they are disorganized. They don't know what beds were free and changed us from our original place. When we arrived we had to wait aorind 3 hours to do the check in, the staff wasn't available and couldn't reach them the day before (the mobile was turned off). The beds are really bad and the water is a main issue in the city/hostel. Though the hostel offers hot water, there must be only one person in the shower (there are 5) to get hot water.
