    An amazing and friendly environment. You are quickly welcomed by the staff which become your friends, especially on activities. There are many nationalities represented in the guest list and they’re as warm as the weather

    Pros: Amazing staff Amazing fellow travellers Security Excellent location Free organized activities Cons: Not super clean Bathroom smells Hot water some times Overall, the pros totally outweighs the cons cuz nobody goes to a hostel to enjoy a luxury lifestyle. People at the hostel really made me love puerto Vallarta and I had a blast!

    I like this place a lot. The volunteers are amazing and the roomates are fine, like everybody is doing their things without bothering the rest. Beds are confortable. I always recommend 'chilindrina' room for girls, it has it's own bath though there's never soap so better bring one. And just upper left bed has no light but other than that is ok. Also it's directed to a very noisy street so better turn on the ventilator. Last but not least, breakfast is included 🤘 and there's a communal TV

    The location of the hostel is great and the facility is beautiful. The rooftop bar is amazing and the staff are super welcoming and friendly. The only thing we disliked was that we stayed in the private room and the bathroom was unbearably smelly and had no hot water. We were told this was because it was “Mexico” however we’ve both been to Mexico many times and are well seasoned hostel goers and this bathroom was particularly bad. Next time I might stay in the dorm but definitely not the private

    Due the lack of staff we couldn't get our room ready/clean on time, restrooms were off by some time so we had to use the other ones in the basement. Besides that it has great location and great atmosphere; if you are in low cost trip don't hesitate to book it.

    Surprisingly the place is not as good as the ratings tell you. I stayed there for two nights during Dec 2019 break and found the hostel is an old construction. Beds are squeaky and at times rooms smell pretty bad. Lockers were tiny and broken, AC barely runs for the Vallarta weather. Breakfast is just coffee and pancakes and if you pay another 40 pesos with tip, you get an omelette with avocados and fruits which is good. I noticed one of the hostels old lady volunteers shouts at guests, disliked
