    A very nice hostel that’s about a 15 minute walk to the beach. The staff was very helpful in giving recommendations and tips for how to get around Puerto, Charly, Kai, and marifer were especially helpful! This place has events going on every day so it’s perfect for socializing and the vibes here are immaculate. The cleanliness of the place was very nice as well and the facilities are much better than expected! Overall a great place to stay, would 100% come back.

    The best hostel! Super clean, really spacious kitchen, collectivos to go to La Punta / Zicatela are right in front, and nice beaches within walking distance. All of the staff and volunteers are very helpful and friendly, special thanks to Gina & Kai for being so welcoming & positive :)

    We loved our stay here! Beautiful garden / hangout spots, great kitchen. Our room was comfortable and clean with a nice en-suite and AC. Location’s good as you can get to some of the best beaches on foot. Sunday night was the best with a trip to beach with volleyball, bbq, dj and drinks.

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in throughout central and south america. The staff does a really good job of creating a fun and communal atmosphere, and the hostel is social and good for solo travelers without being a party hostel.

    The property was really nice, and it’s a very social location. The staff was very helpful, and it’s a good place to meet people. They host tons and tons of functions at the hostel. It would be great if you were traveling solo. You can easily take a bus/collectio to the beach for about 10 pesos or you can take a taxi for around 50-100 pesos.

    The communal areas weren’t kept up very well, there were overgrown plants and leaves everywhere downstairs and on the terraces. There were so many volunteers staying that it felt like they took over the common areas most of the time and they weren’t very welcoming or friendly unless they were trying to sell us an overpriced activity. Our 4 bed dorm was so hot even when the AC was turned on at 10pm it didn’t help. The good parts are that the room was clean, the bar is nice and the kitchen usable.

    The first room we got, the plaster fell off the ceiling and the bed was full of it. We then got a different room for our stay. Overall the facilities were good but the bathroom didn't small great. The hostel has some great outdoor spaces but unfortunately a lot of them are not made for rainy days (which we had a lot as it was Sep) so the space we could actually use was limited. Because the hostel is rather big, I also felt like it wasn't the most social hostel I've ever been to.

    I hated it here. I booked 2 days and stayed for 1 and left at 8 am the next morning. The room was HOT. I mean super hot. They turned on the ac but it did nothing. It was miserable. The toilet was also basically in the shower. It was just a miserable 7 hrs I spent there and I’m so glad I left. Leaving early tired and walking the streets until I could check in at my next place at 2 pm was a way better option.
