    Amazing place in front of the beach with a great environment. Watch your stuff though. My kindle was stolen when I left it to go surf for some hours unattended.

    A wonderful hostel with a great atmosphere. The only thing that can be improved is access to food (an amazing restaurant next door but only open for dinner).

    Stayed in town at tipi before switching here and it was a much better atmosphere and far more relaxed.

    Great hostel. Stayed there several times now, and it's always great. It is a little far from the other hostels and the store, but it also means that it is far from all the noise, which makes it perfect for relaxing and surfing.

    Relaxed friendly vibe. 15 minute walk from the main area of playa venao, so you can easily walk to the parties, but it's nice and quiet when you want to sleep. Kitchen was cleaned multiple times a day by cleaning staff, which is a huge plus for me, as I hate a dirty kitchen. Would definitely recommend to a friend!

    Nice hostel right by the beach, the dorms were airy with high ceiling and every bed had a personal fan. What I didn't like was that the dorms were built kind of like hallways, with a door to the common area on the other end a door to the bathroom area and from there to the kitchen, so people were walking back and forth through the dorms which got a bit annoying if you wanted to sleep in or go to sleep early. Otherwise a really recommendable hostel with good value and a great location.

    Very Good

    Nice chilled hostel where the time stops. You can chill in hamaks, play guitar, enjoy the beach which is right in front of the hostel... but it’s quiete remote and there is no nearby shop! (only one far away which is so expensive). Bring your food! I reserved just one night and actually I wanted to spend 2 so I ask if I can stay. They told me it’s already fully booked. So the other night I slept outside in my hamak but in the morning I could see that nobody came and my bed was empty...

    Very Good

    Great homey feeling and right on the beach so cant complain. However, it is the last hostel at the end of playa venao and about a 25 minute walk to the majority of the rest of town. Dorms are kind of dingy and crowded and dirty - which isn't bad if you're in the mindset of surfing and bumming around - but I definitely got some extra bug/flea bites. However, the wifi was excellent - probably the best I've had in central america. Overall would recommend, but would probably stay closer next time.
