    An awesome mix between location, activities, and kind and warmth service, they staff at hola Ola do make you feel like family. The surf package was totally Worth, although isn’t at the center, they provide an hourly shuttle that picks you up. Is clean and cool, great deal if you wanna have fun.

    Amazing hostel booked 4 nights probs stayed 2 weeks in total. I only left when they got full as just extended my stay every 3 days. Lovely staff, free shuttles in to town and a great communal chill out spot. I was also working and had my place in the corner. 4 people to a room is nice and each room has an en-suite. One thing which I really rate in hostels is ours of hooks to hang stuff makes your stay there cleaner and more organised. Loads of nice events I loved the sunset bbq at the beach

    Had an awesome stay! Stayed here for 9 nights and would come back. The best part is the staff, they were very friendly and welcoming. Helped with everything I needed and made us a great christmas eve with no cost. The volunteers Archie Katie Luke an Marik were also great and made everyone feel at home. The atmosphere is great, on weekends there are always stuff going on and in rest days there are always people to chat with. The only real downside is that they don’t have a shared kitchen.

    Amazing staff, very friendly. Situated a bit further from center but they have free shuttles at night so you don't have to walk. Great environment. The host puts in a lot of effort for its guests

    We loved our stay in this hostel! Good vibes, nice people, the staff is very friendly and they organize nice activities everyday. The downtown is a bit further away but it’s still only a 10 minute walk. Would really recommend. :)

    This is an amazing and very friendly hostel. They made us a surprise Christmas dinner and it felt like everyone was one big family. The staff were so nice and welcoming and there are always activities to get involved with. The only problem was the shuttles to the beach were quite expensive. But i would definitely stay again!

    Good place to stay with a great atmosphere. Only issue is that the rooms are unbearably hot in the morning, and they should definitely invest in private fans.
