    If you are staying in Pipa you should definitely stay here, it’s a full experience in itself rather than just somewhere to stay. Between all the incredibly welcoming staff/volunteers and the various activities you feel like part of the community instantly and if you’re like us you’ll never want to leave!

    I stayed only three nights in lagarto and I wished I had stayed longer, because the atmosphere of the place was kind of magical. I loved the vegetarian dinner with everybody everyday that was cooked by the staff itself! Everybody shared food and nice conversations. The daily activities bring everyone together, we even had a forro class! Unfortunatly I couldnt attend to yoga class but its nice they offer it. Pipa is amazing! Thank you so much lagarto!

    I’ve never ever experienced a hostel like this in my entire life — I’ve never felt more at home. The volunteers are incredible and so so soooo welcoming, the vibe is unlike any other, and the family breakfasts and family dinners every day ensured that everyone knew each other and you never ever feel alone. Free yoga is also always a plus too (🥰😏). I’d 100% recommend Lagarto to literally any person I know that’s coming to Pipa, and I can’t stress enough how much this place has allowed me to feel like the bes

    I love this place. Be prepared to stay longer than you have planned. They have such a well priced bar, events every evening, a veggie dinner cooked every night, so it creates such an amazing atmosphere for meeting others. One of my fave hostels ever.

    This its a hostel thats really undestand el concepto de Hostel, ellos crean una atmofera super agradable para spend yuor vacation as a turist. La cosa que mas me gusto, es que todas las noches hacen una cena vegetariana para todos los huespedes y pasantes. Had dinner at home its aswome, porque llegas the la playa super tired, get to your room to relax and at 21 hs you listen the ring to tell you that super its readdy. Yoga everymornin, special classes like Teatro at evenings. Perfect Hostel

    The hostel is in an open terrain, with buildings scattered and a camping area, with no difficulty for people trespassing, and the rooms didn't have locks! Also the lockers were too small and my bags didn't fit in. Result: the same night me and other girls got robbed from an outsider! Also, it attracts most the "hippie" type of people, you must be aware because not everybody is able, or wants to, to fit in this "vibe". And it's located 25 min walking from the center, wich was very annoying

    I wouldn't recommend anyone staying here unless you're comfortable with having plenty of cockroaches in your bathroom, sleeping on rotten mattresses and breathing in a room with mold smell. Also, it's ok to stay there if you don't mind having your stuff taken away since they don't offer a big locker for you to store your things safely. It's a good hostel to make friends but they are not capable of offering the most basic structure for travellers.
