    One of the best hostels I have stayed at- Right on the beach, the convenience store across the hostel opened 24 hours. I stayed there on a Wednesday and had the entire room to myself but I think that's abnormal. The staff was welcoming.

    Really loved my stay here, even stayed an extra night! I loved the bar/restaurant downstairs and the staff was very helpful and kind considering my Spanish isn't that great! Would definitely stay again!

    Solo traveler stayed in the private room. Great vibe at the place good staff and surfboard rentals were easy. Be warned if you are not okay with staying up until 2:30 AM when the music finally shuts down this may not be your place.

    The location is on spot and wibe at the Hostel is awesome. The beach is also really beautiful. Everything was really fine but the rooms are super noisy because of the road and the bar. So bring your ear plugs or party all night!

    Right on the beach! Beautiful sunrise and sunset from top floor deck. No running water for bathrooms 4 out of 5 mornings. Top floor 8 person dorm room has windows over main road and is noisy until late at night. Good value for money.

    Over all the Hostel was great value for the money. The bar downstairs is open till 2am and the music was so loud I didn’t sleep. It is right on the beach which was perfect but there are not many restaurants close by. The roof top deck was the perfect place to relax and my favorite part of the hostel. The room was stuffy and dark so the roof was great.

    Although the place is cool. Be careful not to stay here if you need to sleep. They play music till roughly 2-3am. Then wake you up at 8am with some more jams. Food at the bar is good. The provided breakfast, blah. Staff is awesome and surf is rad.

    The worst experience I had at aHostel: - If you wnat to have a pillow yo must pay extra. - They only turn on the AC at night and you have to remind the staff about it. - Lockers are not functional. - The free breakfast they include is: 2 slices of bread and a yogurt which expiration date was 2018.
