    Nice Hostal catering for those who like to drink and socialise or those who like to chill-out and relax. A non-smoking area in the communal outdoor spaces would be nice for non-smokers as smokers smoke everywhere - pool loungers, bar, hammacs, dining area. I booked a 6-bed dorm, was put in a 7-bed dorm securing the single bed in the room so I didn't mind so much, but the room does feel cramped. All beds have mosquito nets and a small locker. Construction noise and people at the Hostal.

    I had a great time at Kawabonga. It’s very close to the Beach, the pool is great for the hot weather and thanks to the fans in the dorms I was able to get a good night’s sleep. What I liked most was the atmosphere in the hostel. Everyone is very social, both the guests and the staff. As a solo traveler I never had to be by myself if I did not want to and overall there’s just a very relaxed and positive vibe there. I also liked that breakfast was included and both options were able to fill you.

    Really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely hostel with a great swimming pool. Located close to the beach and main street - without actually being on it! Great breakfast, and a very clean hostel! Very chilled and with several families, this didn’t affect our stay but could imagine some people not wanting this. Would definitely stay again!

    We had a great time! Although there are a couple things to be aware of that might bother you (but didn't bother us). It's very dark leaving or returning on the dirt path at night which may feel unsafe. Alot of families there as well as backpackers but the families were great fun too! Construction ongoing but they were polite and asked if it was bothering us and offered to do it at a different time of day!!

    The staff were incredible - thank you Benji for making our time so great! Palomino was v chilled and the hostel was situated a 9min walk from town which had lots of great food options. Only issue was that the walk at night was v dark and I wouldn't feel too safe doing it alone. The hostel was also being renovated/more building works which was really loud and woke us up before 8am :/ But would stay again!

    Very Good

    Pros: - Helpful and friendly staff - Great atmosphere and easy to meet people - Short walk to the beach - Nice pool - Cheap Cons: - Very poor security with no cameras, guard or wristband policy. Anyone can enter the property. During our stay one of the dorms got robbed and some people lost all their valuables. - Only 3 bathrooms for the entire hostel. It was a problem during low season with the hostel not full, hard to imagine in high season - Bathroom and kitchen not clean
