A few blocks from the noisy 5th av, good price, helpful staff. I had a very good time there.

By far the best hostel in Playa. There's a huge common area, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and you've got a kitchen if you want to make meals. There are also a lot of "nooks and crannies" where you can kick back and relax, such as the rooftop area an an outdoor picnic area. The staff is friendly, and the location is great too. Highly recommended.

I was in Hostal Playa only 1night. It is just few blocks from the main street, the spaces are big and the staff is nice. But I have some bad comments: 1-I was in a female dormitory, it had no key in the door 2-In the room there was no electricity to recarge my phone and other 3- At night there's a bit of noise coming from the street 4-They charge me 2 nights instead of one because I dind't give back to them the blankets and towel before 12am (I didn't use the room and the bed)!!!it's absurd!!!!

Great hostel with fantastic staff who truly care about their guest's experience - surprised that this hostel isn't better known as the location and building are amazing. Thank you for both visits and hope to see Leo and friends again! Dom (from London)

great location, great staff. Noise problem is a concern. Loud music goes on all the way to 12:30AM. I understand this is a party town, but some people might want to sleep early and there is no way to do so here.

Great place but they smoke cigs indoors, in the common areas, which is gross.
