    Great place super friendly staff. this is not your typical hostel. Maybe I went at a bad time of year, but it was pretty dead. If you plan on going to meet people to travel with, this is not the place. It was full of families/kids/and not as many travelers. But if you are solo, its perfect. great breakfast as well!!

    I loved staying here. Their resort style pool was awesome. Rooms were clean. They do not have hot water but I found out from a local, people in playa de Cocoa do have hot water. This is weird to them. It is not right on the beach but less than 5 min from the beach. Super close to everything. It is very peaceful. Breakfast is amazing

    good hostel, good ambiance and nice pool. breakfast ok. dorm have lockers to put valuables. things to improve - the outside kitchen is nice but raccoons keep coming every night to empty the fridge. system to lock the fridge is missing - the wifi is not working in the rooms, only in front desk - the "fosa septica" is somehow full so each time somebody have shower or flush toilet, a flush of grey water can be seen, and sometimes it smells as well. - the reception is only open after approx 9am

    Quite expensive hostel, but with a great free breakfast included. Dorms are in a building separate to the main hotel, next to the pool. Nice and clean, but watch out for raccoons in the outside cooking area! Staff were friendly and helpful. We were the only people in the dorm, so not a very sociable experience but perfectly comfortable!

    More of a hotel that also has a dorm than an actual hostel so the overall social atmosphere was a bit lacking but I was lucky and the dorm had several backpackers when I was there so we were able to create our own. There is a large kitchen for guest use and a lovely pool. The included breakfast is large and very filling, and the location (1 block from the beach) can’t be beat. It was expensive for a dorm but it’s clean and has air conditioning.

    the pool was too warm and dirty. it didn't feel good nor provide any relief from the heat. the property needs to provide an ice machine or ice trays so guests can make their own ice.
