    Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful. Valentina and Andrey are insightful and welcoming hosts. They have tons of knowledge of around the area and the island. The energy in their place is relaxed and comfortable. Their enthusiasm about the island is contagious. Location is great, just a couple min walk from the beach. Spotless space and felt really safe. Would stay again.

    Valentina and Andrey are lovely hosts, very kind and helpful. I enjoyed my stay at Gava not only because of their kindness but also because it is in a nice area, close to restaurants, supermarkets and the beach.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Gava Hostel. The place is situated far enough from town that you do not feel like you constantly have to be immersed in the chaos downtown :D, but still have a quick drive (~5-7 min) to the center if you so desire. My friend and I went at a very slow time, considering the current circumstances and even so, very much enjoyed the area.The hosts were wonderful, and even went OUT of there way to bring me my passport (to Santo Domingo) after I left it at the hostel!!!! :)

    I really enjoyed my stay at Gava Hostel! Andrej, Valya, and their dog were amazing hospitable hosts. It was fun to spend time together with them. Their place is incredibly clean, they do clean-up every morning. Gava is located in a very convenient location close to supermarkets, restaurants, and the most beautiful beach. Because it is a small hostel, it gives a sense of home and you would never feel that there are too many people there.

    Overall great experience. Owners were both great. The place was spotless. It was quiet. It was close to the beach and any and everything you would want around the area. Owner reached out immediately after my booking and provided a lot of valuable information about the information. DR is known for being resort heavy and having travelled over 500 miles in my short time there and avoiding resorts, this was a great place to stay once we hit Punta Cana. Highly Recommend.

    Had a comfortable stay here and was made to feel very welcome by the hosts and their adorable dog 😊 it was easy to meet some fellow travellers too, with everyone going through the common area. Hostel is kept very clean. Noticeablly better than most I have been to! Location is an easy walkable distance to the water and also a large variety of places to get food and drink. My stay was in January so the fan was enough to keep me cool at night 👍

    Single woman traveler and my stay here at Gava was fantastic. The hosts are amazing and so helpful, the space was cleaned everyday and always nice. They are readily available for questions and it is a 5 minute walk to the beach and nearby stores. I would definitely recommend to my friends to stay here. It is a smaller one with 4 beds and I preferred it so. You’re doing a great job!!

    The hostel is very clean/comfortable and the staff is extremely helpful. Very short walk to the beach and to grocery stores. We were able to cook all of our meals in the hostel with ease. I highly recommend!

    I had a great time at GAVA. I recommend if you’re looking for a small place (there’s only 2 rooms for guests) It is very clean The only thing I did not like is that the hosts were selling excursions for waaaaay more than they actually are (some trips were priced double) So, my only tip for new comers to GAVA hostel is do NOT book excursions with the hostel, you’ll find the same for much much cheaper
