We had to move out after one night since the shared bathrooms were clogging and there were bedbugs on our bed. We complainted to the person incharge and he accepted the shortcomings. Atmosphere in the restaurant downstairs was good and ideal for backpackers.
Unbelievably slow service. Cold food on eventual arrival and un-accommodating staff.
On 2 seperate occasions I've arrived at WYWH equipped with a booking reference and was told firstly that they missed my booking and were now full (so I had to pay 4x the price for a private room elsewhere) and secondly that once again they had missed my booking but they would put me up in an EMPTY dorm. As a solo female traveller that's the last thing I wanted to do. I still gave them business by eating at the bar, but received EXTREMELY slow service and cold food. 50 minutes for an Oreo shake?!
My friend and I initially booked a 2 night stay at wywh but after spending less than an hour there we knew we would stay as long as we could. The bar has a great laid back atmosphere and the staff are always friendly, helpful and incredibly accommodating (and don't even get me started about the food). We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on this idyllic beach and would strongly recommend staying here to anyone spending time at otres beach. We will certainly be back in the future!
Such an amazing atmosphere, I felt so comfortable and relaxed when I got there. The bar has a very chilled vibe. And the staff were very friendly. Shame I only stayed for a night.
On my short trip around the world and the 15 or so hostels I visited, this would have to trump the lot. Great staff and atmosphere even if it was raining and in off season. Definatly recommend and will be back at wish ASAP! Chris, melbourne, Australia

We got what we paid for. The staff was high all of the time, so they were slow and forgetful. The bathrooms were flooded and the showers cold. The private rooms were not actually private. Still, it was quite inexpensive and the food was good!

Great place but as everyone has said, "fix your dam loo's". No ones expecting sparkling clean but actually working drainage would be a great start, at this point just getting rid of the roof would end up being an improvement as it would actually dry ! Not to mention the 2 that have obviously had the roof cave in on them. Otherwise nice accommodating bar, not too loud, lovely open space room for the dorm, and great lockers for the bags.
Had to pay for your own toilet paper which was a bit annoying and the toilets weren't the cleanest we've had but also not the worst. Otherwise, really chilled hostel with some cool people. Very close to the beach. Had a slight booking mixup but staff got it sorted in the end.
It's great booked two nights stayed over a week. Great people make this place where you instantly feel welcome and able to relax. It is beach side so there can be sand around as you'd expect but the location, atmosphere and general feel of the place far out way any first world problems guests may bring with them.
Really lovely resurant area Frieda was an babe. Dorms where ok but you get what you paid for it's a mattress on the floor. There's a locker you get given only thing no plug sockets in the room.
I came here to chill and got so much more, great atmosphere great staff great owners
Had an excellent very relaxing stay, even staying an extra night. Perfect location if you want to get away from towns and cities. Beds quite comfortable, food excellent and good value. Staff were so helpful and made you feel like you were completely at home. Would stay again, but next time not in the rainy season!
Cool place to chill out and relax for a few days, great location accross the road from beach but far away from party area of serendipity. Toilets and showers were grim.
My stay here was ok, the staff were friendly and the bar area and food were great. I stayed in a hut with a fan which was hot and very basic. The mosquito net over my bed had holes it, and in general bedsheets, towels etc. seemed old and worn . . . but I think this is probably typical of other places at Otres beach. The bathrooms weren't that clean, were full of ants and the water was brown. However, if you aren't that picky and just want to chill out this place provides a good environment.
