Crappy hostel. Anna the girl working was really rude. No atmosphere. It is basically just someone's apartment divided into rooms. No social area and the rooms are really hot. Also there was only one bathroom and one toilet between three rooms. It is in a really good location though and phillepe working there was lovely and very helpful. It is over priced though.


LSB isn’t a hostel—It’s a hard to find, 3rd floor apt w/ few guests & an absent, rude & silence-crazed owner, Ernie. Ernie is rarely present after check-in (incl. “check-out”, when deposits are allegedly returned). When present, he vigorously imposes quiet in the stairs & after 23hr, scolding guests & pointing to rule signs (one threatens eviction). The kitchen is locked after 23hr—roughly dinnertime in Spain. And don’t count on the free surf lessons—Ernie will suggest a friend w/ “good rates.”

Lera Surf hostel is a basic hostel with just bathroom for everyone which sometimes is a pain, the location is excellent though and close to most things! Staff are hard to get hold of but ernie is helpful! Overall a comfortable stay


The facilities of this property was in rooms of a local family. They were present in the flat the whole stay. There were some rooms signed as private, but the bathrooms we used together with the family. We weren't allowed to use the kitchen, what was promised. Furthermore, the connectivity and the speed of the internet was very poor. It's known that this hostel got two different facilities, but we got the worst one, I guess.

Perfectly located near the Playa La Zurriola, 5 min walking from the old town. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere, since the Hostel is in fact a nice apartment where we found mostly surfers. Nice!
