    Cozy and comfy, this hostel makes you feel at ease. It was easy to talk to people here, the staff were friendly and it was nice having access to two kitchens. The staff also cooked a free dinner for everyone one night which was delicious! You should stay here in Caldera.

    Llegue con mis amigas el día 30 de Diciembre , nos recibieron muy amablemente. El staff fue de gran ayuda en todo momento, nos dijeron que querían preparar una cena para fin de año conjunta con todos los del hostel. Cada uno preparó una comida típica que fue genial y después fuimos a la playa a ver fuegos artificiales. El hostel es bueno , quizás un poco caro , pero el ambiente merece la pena. Fuimos muy felices allí acabando el año. Lo recomendamos 100%

    Really friendly helpful staff. Two kitchens to use and a nice balcony to sit outside on. Right next to the supermarket and breakfast was a nice surprise of bread with ham and cheese and one morning we had waffles. We were unable to attend but they did organise a campfire on the beach while we were there for guest to take part in. Not a huge amount of space for bags in the dorm but not tiny either. All in all a great hostel!

    This hostel is perfect if you are visiting Bahia Inglesa for a couple of days, comfortable rooms, hot showers and friendly vibe. It was very quiet when we were there but It is only spring! Breakfast is good, on parr with other hostels. The lady that runs it is great and very nicely let us check in early and even get breakfast...and also check out super late as we had a night bus. The only thing is cleanliness as we found broken glass in our shower and some areas were dusty.

    Quirky, but fun building with colorful decor. Dorms were extremely cramped although beds were sturdy and comfy. Staff were invested in their guests and very helpful. The included breakfast was more than a usual hostel offering. The whole place could benefit from a good cleaning especially the bathrooms, some of which had mould.

    Not really impressed by this hostel. The staff is not really helpfull - we had some questions before arrival, and they never responded to our e-mail. Also when we wanted to check-in we were told to wait “just five min.” three times, which ended up being 1,5 hour. Everyone seemed a bit stressed and confused. Not much space in the common areas, and few showers. Very simple breakfast. Dormroom was fine, and location good. We took a collectivo to Bahía Inglesa just outside the hostel.
