    Had a lovely 2 nights stay here! A simple cosy and friendly small hostel that offers you everything you need if you're on a budget. Our highlight was the trip with Blanca to the wild beach! Would never have found it ourselves!

    The volunteers are awesome! The owner is a gracious host who ensures everybody is having a great time. Stay here, you won't regret it! I love how you can cook a meal in the kitchen and that it has a social vide. It was easy to meet fellow travellers.

    An overall nice hostal with everything you need and more. Including a Netflix room, rooftop, open kitchen and (the best part) a dog! We spent our New Year's here (a little unplanned), but the atmosphere was lacking. We (2 Dutch people) were in the middle of Americans (which is basically the standard in Puerto Vallarta), so that didn't help either. However, the owner is very friendly and helpfull.

    Very Good

    I didn't understand why the reviews were so high. The location is really nice and close to the beach, yes, big bonus. They have a nice rooftop as well. But the rooms were really basic, beds not that comfortable. The lady running it seem very proud (as they were celebrating their 4 year anniversary), but the place could do with a bit of upkeep. It's just very basic for the price. I've seen nicer in Mexico.

    I'm an experienced traveler and this hostel is just bad. Terrible atmosphere. Poorly managed. Bugs. Dirty bathrooms with no toilet paper. Spoiled breakfast. Just book one of hostels down the street.
