We have just finished redecorating the hostel and we are now adding cleaning protocols, retraining staff and changing procedures in light of Covid-19 and new government guidelines. We will be limiting our capacity and we are creating more private rooms at the expense of dormitory spaces. Mealtimes will have reduced hours so we can dedicate more time to sanitation. We hope to give you a wonderful warm and safe experience.
Remember there are no ATMs in El Paredon. We ask that you bring no outside alcohol or children and certainly do not combine the two. Bring smiles, sun tan lotion and expect to want to stay longer than you anticipated. We look forward to meeting you!

    Had some medical problems during the night and the owner helped take me to the closet health centre. Our stay was cut short, but I'd really like to come back as it was such a lively fun hostel.

    BEST PLACE EVER. We loved our stay so much! We cannot wait to come back. Only downside was the rooms were like a sauna.

    I enjoyed speaking to the general manager (Bruce) with any questions I had. did not enjoy the fact that there was no kitchen for the guests and that no food or drinks from the outside was allowed to enter the hostal. meaning that while you stay there you practically have to eat every meal in a restaurant.

    Really cool hostel, staff were great and plenty of activities (beach volleyball etc). We had a private room which was really nice and had air con through the night. Nice family dinners every night.

    Awesome place for a weekend escape by the beach, no WiFi, no stress, just ocean, sunrises and sunsets, beach volleyball, hammocks, meeting new people, surfing a little. No need to worry about food - there’s a restaurant available for you all day long. The pool and the bar definitely add a party spirit if you want to party. But for a long stay it turns out a little expensive, due to inability to use kitchen.
