Very relaxed but sociable hostel in a good location. Only stayed one night but wish I could have stayed longer. Not the cleanest place because it's essentially and old run down house Bethan everything you need and good garden ti hang out and to meet people


Pros: The Brazilian sisters who worked at the reception were really amazing. Friendly environment in this small family run hostel. Amazing hot showers. Cons: The kitchen was falling apart and the stair railings were not firm. The breakfast was really bad bread with really bad tomato salsa and mixed fruit and fruit juice. But there wasn't much choice because establishments in the vicinity seemed to open later in the day. Overall: I had a good relaxing time. Neither super quiet nor a party hostel.


Really nice place. Nice staff and great facilities. I'll be back.


I had a really great time at this hostel. I booked for three nights, but ended up staying for several weeks! PataPata is run by a friendly, helpful family and has a great, easy going atmosphere. The staff are incredibly helpful, facilities are good and the breakfasts are tasty. Everybody seems to have a nice time there. Definitely recommended. I will be returning soon.

Was loud. Hard to sleep for a family. We booked way ahead of time and felt we were over charged compared to the advertized price once we were on site.

The best location and atmosphere! Hostel is owend by chilean family with three little boys but all workers are travellers and it makes really fun atmosphere there. We had the best time and staied longer than we were planning. Nice common area and patio to make friends with other backpackers, big kitchen and the best breakfast I've seen in the hostels so far.
