I stayed one night here in a dorm right next to the plaza. I got woken up so early by all the noise outside as it's right on the main road and theres no windows just mesh. Not a lot going on here either, a couple of people in the common areas but that's it. Very clean and secure and simple.


Great hostel! Planned to only stay 2 night but stayed 4 instead. Staff are super friendly and helpful, great breakfast, good common area to meet other travelers. Free bedding, towel and soap! 5 bed female dorm was comfy with plenty of room, top bunk was a little hard to get up and down as there are no railings to hold onto, not a big deal though. Great local restaurants close by and main town only a few blocks away, easy to walk.


Fantastic kitchen faculties, laid back and friendly atmosphere, brilliant location and comfortable quiet rooms.

Cool hostel! There's loads of areas to chill out and socialise, hammocks,sofas,rooftop,Pool etc...great kitchen/bathroom facilities and the owners are really nice.


We thought the hostel was fantastic! The rooms were cleaned daily and the entire hostel was extremely clean. The air con kept the rooms nice and cold and it was lovely to have free breakfast and water available everyday. However, the best thing about the hostel was the friendly and helpful staff, queta, anna and tuta in particular went above and beyond to help us with everything!! Also in a great location, about a 5 minute walk to the beach and even closer to the ADO bus stop.


I love it such a chilled place and so cheap


Good place to stay. Off the crazy party scene path and close to cafes and a really neat place called The Moulon Rouge, a beautiful, eclectic artistic cafe/gallery with live music and yummy drinks. Hostel Playa has kind people working there (the owner is a playful goofball) and good vibes all around. The pool and bathrooms were super clean too. I'd definitley recommend it :)
