    I loved staying here. It felt so fancy, and for such a good price. The food is decent, the staff are all really nice, location is great, and I love that they try to create a social atmosphere. They provide mosquito nets, which is so great considering how many mosquitos there are here. They play good music and the pool is perfect for chill days, and it’s only like a 5 minute walk to the beach. They also provide surf lessons, surf board rental, and help you sort transportation!

    I'd recommend! Wonderful staff, nice pool, very clean, and close to the beach. Not really a party hostel but super close to other hostels so you can party there if you want. I stayed in a cute private tipi, but be aware that there is no AC so it got quite hot at night.

    Really relaxed hostel with good facilities. The food is some of the best I've had in a hostel but fairly expensive (in line with most restaurants in el paredon). The hostel is only a 5 minute walk away from the beach. But it quite often rains heavily at night, so you will likely get caught out as most of the nightlife is near the beach. Some outrageous tunes being played at the bar. Whoever played Tame in to Mac demarco, in to the chili peppers deserves a payrise.

    Really nice hostel and facilities. Whilst the surf lessons may have been great value the food was quite expensive! Not all the rooms have aircon, so was really hot at night!

    Very nice relaxed place with amazing facilities. Rooms, pool and restaurant were super nice. Food a bit expensive but tasty. I loved the music they played! Location is a 5 min walk to the beach. This place is a bit more fancy and hotel ish so I feel like it was a bit less social than other hostels I’ve stayed in. Still hat a good time and would come back :)

    Nice stay in el paredón. The pool here is soooo nice! Unfortunately the town wasn’t for me (wayyy too hot) but I booked the right place to help me survive. Pool all day and an air con dorm at night. The food from the restaurant is also delicious
