    I've stayed in countless hostels and this is one of the best ever. The wristband system where you can open your room door and locker is fantastic and I wish more hostels had this. The beds were comfy and the rooms spacious enough to accommodate luggage without making it cramped. The patio is really nice and there is a lot of tasteful art around the hostel. The common area downstairs was also very impressive. It's less than a 5 minute walk from the beach and all the staff are really helpful.

    Rooms were good, the security system is a wristband which is for the room and your locked drawer which is the best I’ve had yet. Location is great, can walk to old town and the beach. The restaurant/bar was closed for most of my trip and didn’t seem very busy but I was there Sunday-Wednesday so might be different on the weekend. Main remark is it’s not very easy to meet other people/travellers unless they’re in your room.

    This was a very nice and well-located hostel to stay in, the atmosphere was lively even off season, but at the same time it was calm during the night. I had originally booked for two nights, but had an issue with my bus on the day of arrival, and upon calling the office they canceled my first night (very good customer service). The hostel has good public areas downstairs, a nice terrace, and the beds are very comfortable.

    One of the few hostels here, and a nice stay. The semi capsule beds are nice and private, tons of bathroom facilities, and in a perfect location 2 min from the beach. Only complaint is that there is very little social atmosphere, as the bar outside feels more like a private restaurant, and you are not allowed to drink on the rooftop or basement social areas.

    Would definitely recommend staying here. The location and convenience was perfect. 9 minute walk to bus station and 3 minute walk to the beach. No need for a car or uber because everything is walking distance. The bar down stairs was always busy and looked great. The room and bathroom were clean, but not 100%, but as with any european hostel. Was a bit hot at night with closed windows (their rules) and an old fan that they supplied. Would stay again if cheap enough because of the location.

    The location of this hostel is hard to beat being so close to the beaches and old town. The beds are also very comfortable. However, the room was so incredibly hot two of the nights I couldn't sleep until 4 am when it cooled down outside. Also when I arrived there was an issue with my locker and the staff I originally asked was very rude and unhelpful. Luckily there was someone else working who was able to resolve the issue and was very friendly while helping.

    Got a private room for 4 people, 2 bunk beds each. The room was clean and spacious. The outlets only worked at some times (would randomly turn off). The showers/bathrooms were clean and okay to use. Easy to find and walk to Old Town and the beach.

    Nice hostel, with awesome beds if you pick the six bed dorm with curtained bunks! Not that social a place for a solo traveller though. The big kitchen seemed great in theory but sadly only has a kettle and microwave so your cooking options are limited, and they close it at 11pm so you can't refill your water bottle after this time. Well located to La Concha beach and the old town and still walking distance to everything else. Did love how eco-friendly the hostel was too :)

    Let's start with the good: the beds are amazing and the location is top notch. However, for the price I paid I still felt robbed. Staff was very uninterested and even with 3 man behind the desk playing on the phone, no one really seemed to be willing to help a guest. Also I got no explanation about the hostel whatsoever when I arrived. WiFi was unreliably bad, showers were mediocre and their were no sinks to shave. Toilets and kitchen weren't very clean either. Bar and towels seem expensive.
