    My favourite hostal I’ve stayed at to date. Beautiful conscious spiritual vibe with comfy colourful spaces and a wonderful social atmosphere. Take advantage of the free yoga and meditation classes as well as cacao ceremonies and family dinners well worth the price. I’ll be coming back one day to take part in their spiritual residency program which most of the staff are a part of and they’re all truly wonderful beings. Special shout-out to Dor for answering the door for me upon arrival :)

    This is the hostel for the spiritual hippie who just wants to chill. The owner is a zen master. He offers meditation and yoga classes throughout the week. It has free breakfast and super chill vibes. The people there are super sweet. I love this hostel...The only complaint I have is that the beds aren't the most comfortable, but whatever.

    Great beds / privacy pods, nice common areas and good tours. Our room was on the street side and had quite a bit of noise at night but did manage to get a good sleep. Not that much atmosphere in general, but would still recommend. Great if you are into yoga etc

    The breakfast was amazing and the hot showers/water pressure was also super good. The hostel cats were cute, like typical cats they sleep wherever they want (including your bed). The staff were nice but a bit distant, I think they were on a trip or coming down from one. This place is bit hippy/spiritual so if that isn't your vibe...maybe look elsewhere but it was good for our stay

    Lovely hostel. Expect deep conversations all around. The volunteers are dedicated and sound minded. The vibe leans toward the spiritual side so if that's not your thing then...

    La Isla's staff were super welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere is one of much relaxing and socializing in the common rooms, more than most hostels I have stayed at. This makes it easy to meet people. Love that. The dorm rooms are some of the tightest I have stayed at and without much privacy to be had, which I didn't enjoy. Good events provide for a community atmosphere.

    Very relaxed and chilled hostel, so it was a bit hard to meet people. The place is very small and the rooms are tiiiiny and not the most comfortable. It was however very clean and homely in the common areas. Very nice staff, breakfast and free yoga on the terrace.

    Small space with much indoor sitting and chilling options-fyi: the only outside bit is a small highwalled courtyard. Breakfast was homemade and is a great time to chat and meet other travelers. The offer of free mediation and yoga classes is a sweet plus although I found the staff a bit distant from the hostel guests compared to other places I've stayed. The dorm beds are big and very comfy! yet bathrooms and kitchen were a bit generally dirty.
