    Best hostel ever. For me it was the perfect stay there. Super clean, close to the ocean, relaxing atmosphere, comfy beds and I just LOVE the staff. They are alI super kind and care a lot about you. I spent a lot of nights there because I didn't want to leave this place (and Sierpe 😉). Also it's close to a bunch of beautiful waterfalls, it's a great place to do a whale tour or just relax. I've met a lot of great and relaxed people there. Maes, ya los extraño a todos! Ciertamente volveré 💚

    This was by far the most peaceful and chill hostel I’ve been to. There’s hammocks and a bird watching area, the beach is about a 5 minute walk, and a market close by. The rooms were very clean along with showers/toilets, there are fans, and each room has a small balcony which was nice to do some work on. Definitely recommend this place!!
