    Really nice hostel, with faboulus staff, beautiful location with view to the Sierra Nevada and a delicious breakfast. I had an relaxing time and would have enjoyed to stay two weeks more! It's a great option to relax and dive into a chilled beach life. Would recommend it to everyone who wants to feel at home at the beachside!

    Very friendly and helpfull staff, super good location (5-10min walk from the main street, so super quiet if you want a good night sleep, and 3min walk to the beach). Also comfy beds. My only complaint would be that the breakfast included was just two arepas with jam, and if you wanted eggs and fruits aswell you would have to pay an additional price. I just think its super uncool to claim that breakfast is included when its just like two pieces of arepa.

    Most of the staff was friendly and answered any questions I had. Stayed in the shared dorm and I slept really well both nights, likely because of the fans which drowned out all noise. Breakfast of arepas and coffee was included, and you could pay extra for eggs and fruit. They had a fully equipped kitchen and I did most of my own cooking, especially enjoyed the blender for smoothies. Hostel is a couple streets over from all the hussle and bustle which was great for me. Ten min walk to the beach

    When I first stayed it was spotlessly clean, good WiFi, lovely staff, kitchen to use. Then other guests joined the dorm and never washed the sand off their feet before coming in and so the dorm and bathroom was a state and this wasn’t cleaned for a couple of days, meant you’d be walking through the sand and it’d be all get into your bed. Really nice staff though that go above and beyond to accommodate you, really appreciated it

    Hostel looks nice and is very close to the beach. Room is spacious with big lockers and good mosquito nets. There is a shared kitchen that looked good aswell (I didnt use it). I found it a bit weird that it says 'breakfast included' and that you get 2 arepas, and if you want eggs and fruit with it you have to pay 4000 extra.

    This place looks cool from the outside but don’t let that fool you. The rooms are cramped, with 1 power outlet for 8 beds, bathrooms are filthy and the staff are miserable.
