Its defenitely one of the coolest hostels for travellers in San Pedro. The stuff is nice, its in the center and really the place to hang out with other travellers. The owner is for me a great artist, he made the hostel to a unique place in the world. I never saw a hostel like this until now!

Had a great chilled out time, the hostel is small but it means everybody gets to know everybody and the atmosphere is great. We had a BBQ all together on our last evening, great fun! The staff is cool and very serious and careful about the rules (no noise after 12pm) which I found good. Would definitively recommend staying there!

The atmosphere in this hostel is so great! Ideal for meeting new people and having fun. Also they did a good job on the artwork which adds a lot to the atmosphere. One minor downside was the administration of the staff, last night I appearantly had to move to another room but nobody told me so I encountered someone else in my bed. But for all of the rest I had a very good experience here!

A great hostel in a great location. The place has a real good vibe and it's very easy to meet people as a solo traveller. A shame that the place is so unorganised. Double bookings etc. Do not book tours through hostel. Many problems of people being charged too much, not given change, not given key deposits back, not given correct info. e.g. what clothes to wear, where to meet (pretty important at 4am in the morning!) etc. I'd recommend booking directly with the agents on the main street\square.

Staff was more than excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Atmosphere was fantastic and it was mainly thanks to Ian who made it a point to mingle with the guests. Andrea was very helpful. Thanks again to all the staff at Hostal Rural.

One of the best Hostels I have ever stayed in! Great atmosphere, great people and staff was amazing. They can help you with anything and if you are lucky you can even get discounts for tours there! Especially Ian really went out of his way to help us with anything we needed. And everybody really respected the quite hours after 11pm, so it was no problem at all to sleep. I highly recommend this hostel!

It says check in at any time but we got to the hostel at 8.30am and couldnt check in until 1pm. There are no lockers in the rooms for bags just small lockers that you can put a few things in. There was a bit of a toilet roll shortage,that happened every day were there. Kitchen was small. Staff are very helpful and speak gd english. Hostel has a gd atmosphere, and can meet lots of people. And is in a gd central location.

Like staying in someones home. The beds are the best, 2 pillows & a comforter! Huge storage lockers. The open market is right down the street & a block from the beach. Everything was excellent.

Hostal Rural is great. It's like an oasis in the busy town of San Pedro. Jose and Ian are awesome. They will help you with anything you need and always make sure everyone is happy. The set up is great for meeting other travelers and socializing. I had a really good time there and would definitely go back. Also, the tours you can book through the reception are great and cheaper than when you book it elsewhere.
