    Everything you're looking for in a low season stay. Rooms were clean and bright, looked straight out over the ocean, friendly staff and nightly dinners brought the group together (including the staff, who share in the meals) highly recommend.

    I was there before the high season, so the hostel wasn't packed. The atmosphere there (and in the rest of the town) is more of party and the staff was in the same mood. I was more into getting around and chatting. Located really on the beach, the deck is on the sand and the sun rises through the room window. Beautiful and great to chill out.

    I stayed here in the off season in one of the private rooms. Very friendly place with welcoming staff. Nice atmosphere. The room was over-priced for the full rate for what it was, however the no cancellation rate was more reasonable. Room had a musty smell but it had been raining for 2 days. Hot showers always. My door lock got jammed with me inside the last day but a staff member quickly got it open.

    The staff here makes the establishment worthy of high praise. The location is second to none. They made me feel at ease and gave me the right amount of attention when checking in. I embarked on my vacation during the off-season fully knowing that things were not running at 100%, meaning the restaurants and people would be at less than 20% capacity. Still a great little beach town and experience. The crew and guests were all open and friendly.

    Just about the most beautiful location you could ever ask for in a hostel. 20m from the beach. Wake up to watch the sunrise over the ocean without lifting your head from your pillow. Nice hot showers. Only a couple negatives: there’s only access to a kitchen in another building a couple blocks away, and it’s a bit more of a party hostel than the HW description let’s on. Reggaeton and shouting deep into the night on the main floor until 3:30-4:00am making it hard to sleep sometimes, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Perfect location on the beach. The 8 bed dorm has no window and stinks of damp however the dorms at the front are great and look onto the sea. There are a lot of dogs hanging around and if you have an allergy this is not the best! But nice friendly staff and brilliant music in the common area!

    Awesome location right on the beach. Visiting during off season there weren't many people there so I'm not sure why the place was so dirty. Sinks had mould in them. Showers were blocked. Shower curtains were old and stained. Bed sheets had stains on them. Otherwise a good stay if you don't mind uncleanliness!

    The location is great! It is right in front of the beach, so the view is amazing and having breakfast in the morning sun while seeing dolphins swim is a super nice feature :). The room itself (standard private room) wasn't worth the money we paid for it in my opinion. It was extremely damp, bathroom door hung out of the bottom hinge (so, didn't close well) and also the main door was showing lack of maintenance. Besides that, the breakfast was good, staff was friendly and the location amazing!

    The hostel is a nice place for party. Very difficult to sleep at night because of the noise although there is a clear sign for quiet hours from 12pm. Staff is cool. Breakfast and location very good. When we came they had works going on : only 1 showed out of 4 available and no separation for girls.
