    Such a nice vibe, close to everything. Extended my stay from 2 days to a week and a half as I really liked the place and the people.

    I had a few hestitations after the reviews that I read, and I am so glad that I didn't let them influence my decision. What a great hostel! Felt like I was staying at a family home for the holidays. The location is amazing just two minutes from the beach and surf schools and one minute from a food court. The kitchen is great, and great place for solo travelers, as you won't be alone and meet mind like people. The staff is nice & chill. Totally one of the best hostels I stayed during my trip.

    What a great hostel! Very easy to meet people, everyone is so friendly, but it's not a crazy party vibe either. Great relaxing feeling space and people — and very easy to walk everywhere around Samara! Highly recommend Matalori and if I'm back in the area, I'd stay there again.

    Looking for a combination of social and quite atmospheres? This is an excellent option! Within 5 minutes walking is the beach, the 'natural center' (food places), a bank, grocery and liqour store, and the main street. It was just far away from the main road to be quite, but not to far to feel secluded. My partner and I stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm, each with a small security locker and fan. The 2!! kitchens where well stocked with equipment and pretty clean. Would stay again!!

    The staff and other guests were so friendly and wonderful! As a solo traveler it was easy to meet people as there were many other solo travelers there. The location was perfect. A 2 minute walk to the beach and shops but on a quiet side road. Kitchen was well stocked if you wanted to make your own food. Staff were always cleaning: however, the place could use a bit of an upgrade ( e.g. new fridge, mattresses and pillows).

    Great location and Samara is very fun to explore. Rooms were very hot even with the fans and bathrooms weren’t that clean. Common areas to hangout were very fun though! Overall decent but a little expensive for what you get

    Nice hostel with a lot of potential. Had great facilities, including two kitchens, a great social area and hammocks. However, it did not feel entirely clean and a bit run down. There was rust in the fridge, the shower, on the beds (without a ladder to get to the top bunks), and very rusty/weak fans and so the rooms felt very stuffy. The rust is not very safe or hygienic. The showers weren’t great. The hostel has a lot of potential, but feels quite run down. The atmosphere was also interesting… it was very n
