This place is awesome! If you're looking for luxury, this probably isn't the right place for you but it was perfect for me! Everything was kept clean, WiFi was good, and there were several fans in our room to keep cool. The location is incredible, it's pretty much right on the black sand beach and if it is cool enough to sleep without the fans you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. It's just a quick walk out of town and the owner brews fantastic beer! Try the sundown brown!


Beds were extremely uncomfortable. As it is just a little out if town you have to get a taxi back in the dark which is slightly anoying


Very good hostal. Located right in front of the sea and very close to the center, 5 mins walking distance. Very good value for money as a hostal.

Fortuately only booked one night at Kayas. There is plenty of better value accommodation in town, close to amenities and better beaches. Our standard twin room was dark, dingy and windowless. The bathroom had no door. The shower was cold. We were freezing during the night without blankets. The wifi was almost non existent or slow throughout the hostal.


If you looking for a backpackers this is the place for party.
