At Hola Ola, we have the simple yet powerful mission of connecting free souls with the things and people that make them feel alive. We are re not simply a place to stay.

    Great hostel, great people, both volunteers and staff. We had an amazing time here and even ended up coming back for another few days after leaving for Granada. Met loads of new friends here due to its social atmosphere. Slightly out of town but you can walk in ten mins or from 7 there’s a free shuttle to and from town every hour. They also offer lots of activities such as beer pong on a Thursday night where the winner gets free Sunday funday tickets as well as a (not free) shuttle to a different surfing be

    Awesome hostel, really enjoyed my stay there. Staff are all super friendly and helpful. The meals were all great and well priced, and the family style dinners are a great way to meet other travellers. Very social atmosphere with various different activities organised daily. It’s a bit of a walk into town but there is semi-reliable “ferry” that takes you across the river for C$10, although at low tide you can usually walk through the water across the sand bar. There’s also an hourly free shuttle into town e

    One of the best chilled and sociable hostels I've come across in a long time. The lounge area is easy to meet people especially as a solo traveller like myself. There is a slight concern about the distance of the hostel from the centre of town but this is resolved by the free hourly night shuttle from 7pm. Without the shuttle, it's only a 10 minute walk (crossing a very shallow stream). Finally, and most importantly, the friendly staff were very hospitable and accommodating to individual needs.

    As a solo female traveller, the location wasn’t great. We were told by the hostel it was unsafe to walk to town or back from town after dark. The walk didn’t feel too comfortable in the day either - the shuttle never arrived at the time we were told it would and needed to get a taxi. Food was good and staff were nice, but do consider the location if booking.
