Staff was great both at check in and check out, and even when renting surf boards! My one issue would be to have more than a little towel on the floor in the bathroom. In the dorms, the bathrooms got wet often and fast, and we were left to having to try to wipe everything up with only a More

I loved how close it was to everything. I also liked that there was a fridge in each room and community kitchen right outside the room. Good vibes all around. Instructors are great - we had Grettel and she was awesome. I'd definitely recommend this place. More

Nice stay, the staff and the Cat (Simba) were excellent. actually the only thing I didn't like was that you can't access your cold drinks in the fridge at night, because the kitchen is closed. More

Location is definitely pretty good. So if you don´t have much time as i had you should stay here. On the other hand the value for money is not so good than i was expecting. I mean the bed is not so good. More

This hostel was pretty pricey when we went between the week of Christmas and New Years. $25 for a bed in a 10 person dorm and no breakfast! Otherwise the location is prime and the deck at the top is really nice. WiFi hardly ever worked as well. More

The locations and staff were great. The downsides for me were that it was a big party hostel (at least when I was there), the shower was flooding, and I got a pretty good electrical shock from some wires hanging down in the fridge. Even left two burn marks on my hand. More

Great atmosphere. Mattresses are thin and you must not be expecting to sleep early with a bar right next door. More

What this place lacks in cleanliness they make up for it in atmosphere. This is a true "Pura Vida" hostel. They had awesome live music the three nights I was there which was really cool. Mosquitoes were a huge problem! But I guess that is everywhere. Really neat place just dirty. More
