Location - Right by the beach Rooms - Kind of dirty, ants all over my bed and pillow. Food - Good breakfast included Bathrooms - Very clean and great water pressure.


This hostel couldn't be closer to the beach and is an amazing location. Perfect for just needing a place to crash at night. However, I did get bed but bites from the room we stayed in.

Great location of the hostel. Next to the beach and next to the main shopping street! Not the cleanest and most beautifull place to stay, but also not dirty! Nice garden with hammocks in the middle of the place. Great breakfast across the street. Good value for money. specially in the way too expensive Playa.

Great location and very nice with the breakfast included


After viewing the photos we booked a 'basic private shared bathroom' for 2nights. Upon arrival we got an unclean and decayed room, with many fleas walking across the bed (no photo of this room@website). We went to the frontdesk and told the guys we were unsatisfied with our room and that this is not the room we booked, according to the photos. He told us the room was double-booked and that we got an 'upgrade' (2 double instead of single beds), the quality was normal. We left after 1 night
