    Really great hostel; nice touches, just steps to the beach, it was just so relaxing! Definitely recommended if you want a few days outside Leon to enjoy the ocean as well as the peace and quiet.

    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

    We had a lovely stay here. The hostel is right on the beach with a few restaurants nearby. It was also really clean and free from sand in the dorms. Only minor issue was the shower wasn’t very powerful and some staff could have been more friendly and help with finding transport.

    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.

    The room, building and the place is beautiful, it is a great property in front of the beach. The only issue we is the water supply from the bathroom, it was salty and sticky. It seems that it is a seawater or unfiltered water.

    Great location but terrible atmosphere. There was a large family staying who took over the place with their loud music until 1am, and kids running around and people yelling to other rooms along with music blasting, all starting at 530 in the morning. The staff simply shrugged their shoulders but later gave me the owners (who apparently live in Brazil) number to call. Nothing was said or done to ensure a peaceful and respectful atmosphere (i.e. no enforcement of quiet hours) so i had to leave
