Had lots of fun. Great people.


Great hostel. Location was nice and central, right near the bus terminal. Didnt have the most pleasant stay due to the people in my room. Had nothing to do with the hostel though.


Super friendly Hostel staff, nice atmosphere and premium location! Would definitely recommend this to all people planning to go to Playa.


Great hostel, always a party going on - one day there's a free pizza night, the next day there's a girls drink free between 10-11pm, and who knows what's coming next? Good atmosphere and friendly staff. The breakfast could use an improvement and my matress was not at all comfortable though...


again had an amazing time!


There wasn't a good communal area where people could sit around and chat- the bar would have been great if they weren't blasting out really loud music to a roomful of people who were just trying to sit around and talk! We stayed in a mixed dorm and the room was pretty filthy and gross. It was quite cheap but no cheaper than lots of other hostels in the town. There are probably better places to stay in Playa! I wouldn't come back. Saying that, the staff were really nice and location was okay.


Great breaky! fruit, eggs, toast, cereal, coffe, tea


People are really nice, atmosphere is great. It has a great social environment, a great bar, a lot of fun. Staff is vefry nice and polite. However, there's no water pressure, hardly any hot water, and rooms are ugly.


It was the most expensive hostel my friend and I stayed at and although the room for 2 (with a king-sized bed) was pretty clean, I think we both gotten bed bug bites and we could not sleep well because our skin was itching throughout the night (yes we bathed). However, the location is awesome and it could be us being unlucky with the bed bug bites. Also, when we arrived on the 1st night, the shower was not working properly but the owners got someone in to fix it the next day so that's great.


The Service Team was really great, the visitors all very communicative, breakfast was complete.


Disgusting smell in the lower level. Yucky!!


Kitchen was clean but very tiny so hard to cook. The doorm we stayed in was terrible, very uncomfortable beds that was stained. Sheets were dirty and bathroom awful with no hot wather. Would not stay there again. Left after two night for another hostel.


A pretty awesome party hostel, every night at the bar people are hanging out and socializing. The staff is really nice as well. The breakfast is ok, nothing spectacular, but make your own kind of a style breakfast. The bad things are the showers, I didn't have even one time hot shower in this hostel. All in all, I'd recommend this place to people who are looking to meet people and party.


Good hostel, great bar, great stuff.. A lot of fun all you can eat activities and so on. Breakfast is awesome!


The bar keeps the music ery loud until 2-3 am although there is just few people. And it is located next to the rooms in the second floor. By the way there is not lift which is a problem if u are carrying big and heavy luggage.


Staff was very friendly which is a definite plus but I would not stay there again nor would I recommend this place due to the non cleanliness of the facilities, the poor mattresses and shaky bed frames, the dirty sheets and lockers that are too small to be practical for travellers. We had to leave our stuff out in the open which is not secure and is in the way. Also, we were not able to regulate the a/c which left us freezing .. eventually we had to open a window to make it warmer.

Hostel Che was a pretty standard hostel. We arrived pretty sick and it took a little while for the guy at the front desk to realize that while chatting was nice, two of us really needed to lay down. The bar was a little odd - it played really loud music above the rooms. Kinda expected, but the last night of 3 we went up to check it out because we were feeling a bit better and realized it was super loud music but an empty bar. It seemed like since no one was there it could have been quieter.

The water pressure in the showers is very low so it casn be annoying. The staff doesn't speak english very well so it might appear as not being friendly but still they help as much as they can. The hostel is very clean, breakfast is pretty good but the atmospere is dead, completely. Oh, an onemore thing....if you try to cancel you booking after you already paid for your stay they will refund only 50%.
