Property Description

Hospedaje Soma is the only hostel with a pool in town and is ideally located on the edge of the port town of Moyogalpa. Our location is a 15 minute walk from the ferry and main bus stop, and less than 5 minutes away from the only ATMs on the island, numerous restaurants and grocery stores. Being on the edge of town gives our guests access to the conveniences of Moyogalpa, but the peace and solitude of the countryside. We are also perfectly located for hiking Concepcion or catching the sunset at Punta Jesus Maria, and are a great launching point to see other island sites.

The rooms and dorms are very spacious, well ventilated, have screens on the windows, and are spotlessly clean. Each guest is provided with a towel on check-in. The dorms have large backpack-sized lockers (locks not provided) and each bed has a reading light and outlet for charging devices.

The Terrace/Pool area is the heart of Soma. The Terrace area has sofas, chairs and tables for relaxing. We have an extensive collection of board games and a book exchange. Reception offers travel advice, a custom map, and booking services. We can arrange guides, rentals, tours and transport both on and off the island. The pool is open from 8am to 8pm every day and is kept in spotless condition. Our restaurant is open for breakfast from 7:00-9:00; sandwiches and fries are on offer in the afternoons; full dinner is served in the evenings until 8:00 pm. Hospedaje Soma has an honour bar system where guests are free to help themselves to drinks and snacks, any time of day or night.

    Beautiful hostel in gorgeous gardens with a lovely pool. Close to town and just a 15 minute walk from the port. Very helpful staff who can arrange tours and Volcan climbs. Both tour guides they arranged for me were wonderful. Both very friendly, good to spend time with, full of island information. Excellent breakfast and a brilliant chef for dinner. Food is very carb heavy but delicious.

    This place is about 10 mins walk from main port- Moyogolpa, which is a plus and my main reason for booking this place. It's really nice, well maintained property with a swimming pool, which is a strong plus during hot season. Michelle was great in her tips on local activities, restaurants to try and getting around. There's a nice cook(and English speaking) on site with speciality in Curries, which unfortunately I missed. Breakfast was awesome. Met some interesting travelers in here. Overall r

    Incredible chef, great pool, lovely place to feel like you're in a hotel for a bit, rather than a party hostel.

    This hostel is amazing. Even though it rained the whole time we were there, we still had a lovely time. The owner should be really proud. She was so helpful and nice to us! Lots of games and things to do, lovely pool if the weather is good, and it’s really near town. There’s loads of books with tonnes of info! The food served here was absolutely incredible and probably some of the best I’ve eaten on my trip so far. Thank you so much!

    Hospedaje Soma is a quiet, beautiful place to stay in Moyogalpa. Delicious breakfast is included in the price and the pool is awesome! It is in a walking distance from the ferry dock. Nice garden, relaxed athmosphere! They helped me to rent a scooter for a day.

    Really nice place, feels like a boutique hotel, very nice pool and you can get some great food. Staff were really helpful with tours. We had a volcano tour and our guide was amazing, so much knowledge. Can hire scooters, quads and bikes directly from the hostel. Would go again!

    Reception staff as quite unfriendly and not very welcoming. Maybe it was low season but there was only 2 others in the hostel. Staff didn’t get me any recommendations of places to go or see, she acted like she wasn’t sure which I find hard to believe.
