Over my past experiences in hostels around the world, I would say that this place is great quality for an unbeatable price! Its a close walk to the beach and bars. There are restaurants near but that won't be necessary since they give you AMAZING food for cheap so don't bother going out for food. We had an argentinean BBQ one night which was to die for. The staff is kind and overall buena onda :) I plan on going again
As for everywhere, it's about the people you meet not the place you go. And in that, hostel del mar was great! The people there are really nice, and it felt like a family, having dinner together, going to the beach together, makes this place quite special. Hostel wise, it got its good and bad. The location is great, 5min walk from the beach. But it's not really clean, the shower is hard to set up on a bearable temperature, and you often have to wait to use it. But overall, I really enjoyed it!
Location is nice, nearby the beach, and I only stayed for one night at a moment of reconstructions in the backyard. Didn't feel like really good atmosphere (maybe because of reconstruction etc). One girl from the staff forgot to call me a cab (which was important for my travels) - happens, but at least I'd expect a SORRY. Wasn't told any information about excursions etc. either...rooms are pretty small and packed with beds.
Near the beach, huge lockers, nice kitchen, friendly and laid-back vibe.
