    A really quiet place.... If u want to rest this is your place. No pool there but for the price, the place is great and has everything you may need. So clean, nice breakfast, and the most friendly staff ever... Always willing to help.

    Great hostel in walking distance of everything you need in Palomino! We had a private room which was one of the nicest we’ve stayed in in South America. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included and you have a choice between different options! The laundry service wasn’t the best, all of our clothes had like white stains on them and it felt like it wasn’t washed properly. Other than that - amazing place!! :)

    Lovely little hostel. The girls at the resection are super nice. You should be able to speak at least a little bit Spanish! Unlike other hostels this one doesn’t have pool. It’s still super chill to hang out in the hammock. Breakfast is great, too.

    Pros: Located in between the beach and the Main Street - about a 10 min walk to each. Very chilled out and quiet in the hostel. The room was spacious and super clean. Breakfast included and was very good - you have a choice. Good laundry service. Nice garden to chill out in. Cons: We were there at the weekend so the music from the town was very loud. The walls are thin. The internet was very patchy.

    Very Good

    Really enjoyed my stay here. Only complaint would be lack of security. No one at front gate overnight and everyone leaves dorm room doors wide open. Even with this, I really enjoyed the hostel. I would definitely stay here again!
