    Amazing Hostel with great facilities and absolutely wonderful staff. By far the comfiest hostel bed I have stayed in in my 2+ years of travelling. Beds are made daily and the bathrooms are always spot. The staff are so friendly and welcoming from the moment you enter to the moment you leave and always available for advice and help. The pool area is beautiful and a great place to relax, and the TV in the bar area has all sports available to watch. Free breakfast every day is also a great addition

    Literally home from home. As soon as arrive you sense the vibe, the staff are super friendly and welcoming. This is a hostel that has invested in its facilities. The beds are one of the comfiest I have experienced and the they change the sheets everyday. Something which is unique.I appreciate the fact they send you an email warning you that they play music daily . On top of this , the alcohol is very reasonable and the the hostel is super spacious, so it’s very easy to find some quiet space .

    Excellent stay. Great staff. Very social atmosphere, although that does mean there’s music going every night.. WiFi is fast enough for downloads but probably not best place for remote work

    I stayed in a private room for a week and had a great time. The bed was comfortable, the facilities immaculate, and the air conditioning was a life saver. I was working remotely and was able to get stuff done in my room. Keep in mind the wifi doesn't really reach the rooms so I was using my phone as a hotspot. People here like to party. In a private I was able to get my rest when I needed and join the festivities when I wanted to. I'll definitely return to hang out and enjoy the pool :)

    Stay here if you want to party. Staff are honestly the friendliest I've ever met, always smiling and being inclusive, but everything from check-in to cleaning of rooms felt a bit disorganized. Facilities are amazing and location is good, but might be a bit hard to connect with people if you're not that much into drinking all day. Some guests were a bit disrespectful of the dorm space. There are other hostels with a more chill surf town vibe I would prefer in la Punta.

    Really comfortable beds, although you may want to ask for an extra blanket when you check in because the AC is COLD! There wasn’t much of a social vibe when I was here, but it’s a nice hostel with a bar so it’s pretty good

    Very Good

    Shortly before your arrival you get a welcome email that mentions that the hostel likes to have a little party now and then. When I was there the party was happening until the morning. It felt like sleeping in a club. During breakfast many guests were pouring shots into their coffee. If you like American Pie and want to go crazy, this is an absolute amazing place. One night my room was pretty warm. The next day, I was freezing despite wearing a jacket. Personally, I would not go there again.
