    The location is Superb. owner and his wife are amazing. They help you a lot. They speak English, Spanish and Portuguese. There isn't a kitchen for cooking and breakfast nowadays due to the pandemic. My next time in Sta Cruz, I'd like to stay there again.

    They were very helpful and accommodating. They also have the most awesome cat I have ever met. She jumped up on my shoulders and sat there purring after I checked in. Adorable!

    Nice hostel on a great location with chill vibe. If you want to party it's a good place, but also if you want just to relax you can do it. It's not a place where you'll book all kind of tours and get plenty of information, it's more a chilled out cosy place where you can meet new people.

    Wonderful staff, awesome location, just great vibes all along. There is also a cat. This was my first hostel experience and definitely exceeded my expectations. Walking distance to the main plaza and lots of other bars and restaurants. I would definitely come back here when I go back to Santa Cruz.

    Except terrible super, over high volume electromusic everything was ok! But I guess only who wants to go to bed at 4 am wants to stay in this hostel. The windows and the door of the dorm was trembling until 4 am. It was like to sleep just together with a maxi volume loudspeaker at the same bed. If you can sleep in this condition, or you go to sleep at 4 am, go there!

    There are no keys to the dorms, which means they are open 24/7 and anyone can walk into them at anytime. Lockers are only available in the common areas, not in the dorms. In two occasions there was no staff present and information such as transportation to the airport or local buses were impossible to get. I was in a dorm for 9 people and there was only ONE socket available which apparently happened in other dorms as well since people were always trying to charge their gadgets in the corridor.

    Overall the place was ok but there were a few problems Security is lacking. There are lockers outside but not big enough to keep a big bag. As well the shared room couldn’t lock. The shared room was very small and badly laid out so not everyone had a power point and the light switch was behind one of the beds.The best thing about this place was that it was v chill and the bar downstairs and the resident cats were great. The personal however weren’t very warm and not a great at helping you out

    This hostel should make it more clear they close at 11 and will lock you out. I would strongly recommend not booking here if your flight is arriving late in the evening. I had an unavoidable delay and was disappointed by a place which claims to cater to international travel.

    The location is great as it's located right in the center. They have a weird policy in which they shut down reception and lock the door at 11 PM sharp every day so you get locked out if you don't get a key from them prior to that. They do a bad job of informing guests about it. My first night I got locked out and had to wait for hours until another guests happened to come by with a key. I asked one of their staff members for a key at 11:10 PM one night and he was really rude to me about it.
