    Had a very nice stay at the hostel. The staff was extremely friendly and supported with everything. Especially cause I was not sure if I stay a second night. Definitely recommend this hostel, Palomino is the perfect place to slow down :)

    The staff was really welcoming and helpful with everything. The chillout area is really relaxing and we liked the calm music in the background. Best thing is, that it is close to the beach and to a local store to buy fruits/vegetables. The price is very good for what is offered, - the dorms are not too big and the beds are very cosy.

    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!

    Great place to stay in palomino! It is off the Main Street which is nice as it’s a lot more tranquil part of town. Walk to the beach is nice :) It’s a small hostel so you get to know the other guests and feel part of the family. I really enjoyed my stay :)

    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

    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.

    Faro is an anagram of Fawlty towers but most of the letters have fallen off... Plastic covers on mattress and pillow, holes in mozzie nets, stained sheets, sleepless nights, clueless staff, annoying loud music, water off sometimes, all switches and plugs on central column in room, no hooks in bathroom, broken toilets, lid falls on you, no handsoap, rubbish surf, water comes right up to the barbed wire so nowhere to run or sunbathe. Exhausting, so glad to leave, felt dirty. Under €4.50/night !
