Nice Hostel in perfect beach location, facilities and so on were good. But stuff often seemed overstrained and was hardly able to talk English. That might have had something to do with the fact that I stayed at Pura Vida directly after end of the season and thus this might not be representative, but this was often a problem. Anyway the rest was very fine, a good and cheap place in a beautiful location.

Very cool hostel with its own bar and conveniently located right on the beach. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negative was a foul smell in the toilet, perhaps some issue with the drains? Cleanliness of the toilets could also be better maintained. All in all I had a great stay.


Great location right at the beach, good internet.. Very basic


Incredible location-right on the beach and near all the best bars. Facilities ok and staff really nice. Left my ebook vehind and they offered to post it to my home address no worries! Definitely the place to be in vama
