    Really loved this hostel. We stayed in a 4-bed room and the beds were super comfortable and plenty of space. The outdoor area is great for chilling and meeting people. The breakfast was delicious and the fact there is an activity included with the booking made it even better value for money. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a more relaxed vibe.

    One of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed in! It seems pricey at first, but the free tours make up for the additional cost. Most of the staff speak English and are friendly and helpful. Amazing food as well.

    Best hostel ever! We didn’t want to leave, even after extending our stay. The ceviche is AMAZING! The chefs are absolutely incredible with everything they cook. The organised buggy tour was our favourite part of our trip and the barbecue was delish :) bar staff and reception were so friendly and good to chat to, great cocktails...really nothing to complain about!

    Really clean bathrooms (although it would be nice if there was more than one single sex toilet/ shower and one mixed). Having the tours included in the price makes it super good value and the breakfast was nice.

    Great stay here with excellent WiFi, great atmosphere but most of all a fantastic dune buggy and sandboarding tour! Such amazing fun! Only negative is that the swimming pool is FREEZING. Way too cold to swim in! But probably in summer it’s amazing. Thanks for a great stay.

    I was happy with everything. Given that you come for 1 or 2 nights the ‘packaged’ deal works perfectly. If you want to hang out longer (why?) might want to look for another hostel. Bar is good. Showers are warm. Sandboarding is fun Food is all right (anyway better than any other place you can find in town) Staff at reception and bar are fun and always remember your name :)

    Great hostel, also to be expected for the expensive price. An activity per day is included, which takes the bitter taste of the price away :) Pricey food and drinks too, but pretty nice and comfortable. Also nice vibe and people. Recommended!
