Nice hostel in a good location with great views. Breakfast was really good too. My only negative is that it was a bit of a squeeze in the 4 bed dorm with 4 people and all their luggage.


Sweet place, appeared popular with many independent travelers from around the world. No lockers.

Awsome place, very cosy, good breakfast, nice and helpfull staff, great view. We stayed two nights but would havé liked to stay more.


Wonderfull terrace on the seashore, especially when it's high tide. Nice athmosphere, helpful staff. Only negative point: Somtimes I had to wait long time to get back into the hostel


The hostel is gorgeous sitting above the water with fantastic views. Be warned: noise travels easily through the hostel so ear plugs definitely needed. The basic dorm is opposite the sinks and bathrooms and we were kept awake by the noise from other guests using the bathroom and the lights were being switched on and off during the night. Being on the top bunk the light shines straight through the top windows which don't have curtains.


One of our best hostel in south america. The building is so lovely and well located. The personnel is really kind, it was a pleasure to deal with them. The kitchen is small but wait your turn and it's ok.


very recommendable, comfy, cozy homing at palafito. we felt so good at your place. one little tip para mejoramiento: could you install some curtains to the windows - in summer its dark around 10pm, it was very light for us to take the kids to bed - there should be some to the outside windows and the hallway. muchos saludos, ojala pudieramos volver!

Very cute place and building right on the shore but that novelty is the best past. Staff weren't very helpful about buses, activities etc and had very little information or knowledge on hand at reception. Iit is more of a hotel vibe not a hostel, despite having dorms.


Its a really cozy hostel with excellent view on the ocean. The breakfast basic but nice and tasty. Super clean and has some board games available! The staff was great to us!
