    Really good place to just relax and get away from backpacking. Super quick to get a chicken bus from Leon or some of the hostels do shuttles. The atmosphere was laid back and chill, lots of places to eat around and the cat and dog were very friendly. Would recommend going at the weekend as some of the restaurants are closed during the week.

    Great place to stay if you want to chill on the beach and surf, literally on the beach. Great bar/hangout space looking out at the ocean plenty of hammocks and chairs for post surf relaxing. Only down sides are the outlets can be a few feet away from beds although there is one for every bed, no hot water, and they do not have free drinking water. Side note there is no atm in las penitas so keep that in mind, though the staff is very helpful and understanding, and even have an app for cash back

    Beautiful location right on the beach and good chill atmosphere. Kitchen was tiny and a bit dirty. The food they offer is pricey and small portions so if you so want to cook bring groceries from leon! Prepare for multiple power outages. Offers yoga with a view but wasnt told about anything else to do in the area and found out on the last day by another guest there is a turtle sanctuary down the road!

    I loved the hostal itself. Beach boho, clean, secure, amazing price for what you pay. I stayed in a dorm one night, then did a private room with my BF. The private bathroom was stunning. Kevin, one of the owners was so friendly and helpful. What sucked was the staff: they were stand-offish and rude. I asked for a mojito and I saw one of them googling what it was... it’s on their menu. If you want a great hostal, make sure you’ve got great people running it. The vibe was OFF. Needs work socially.

    This is the best choice for Las Penitas! The hostel, dorms, staff and bar are really nice. Breakfast and filtered water is not included, but you can boy those at the bar. Bike rent is for free and the reception has a cute shop with souvenirs.
