    A simple little hostel only a short walk away from the main strip of palomino. A social atmosphere without being too full on with friendly and helpful staff. WiFi worked well and a really nice pool as well.

    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.

    Really nice place to stay, very chill which is great and fits the atmosphere of Palomino. The morning breakfast is good and is above par for a hostel breakfast. The power went out 3 separate times for extended periods, which wasn’t a bad thing because it helped people connect more. Overall, we enjoyed this hostel and would recommended it. The pool is really nice and clean, which is great!

    Gem of a hostel, Really nice atmosphere here, almost like a small hotel rather than hostel. Swimming pool, nice reasonably priced private rooms. Staff are really friendly, with amazing English! Only slight criticism is no onsite restaurant but staff are more than happy to order in food from local restaurants(v small delivery fee to restaurant). Would definitely stay here 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!!

    Lots of couples here, so great to chill. A big far from the main street with all the restaurants, but close to the beach. WiFi only fast in reception. Dorm a bit too tight. They turned the generator on at 6am. The rest very clean and great pool

    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
