    Beautiful hostel right on the beach! My only issue with the location was having to cross a shallow (depending on rain could be worse) river. It wasn't a huge problem but would have been great to know ahead of time since we had a car. Very chill atmosphere, staff was great and very friendly. Dinner at the restaurant was great, breakfast is a bit overpriced for what you get.

    We stayed in the dorm and it was really nice, the staff is super nice too. Just the prices in the restaurant are too high and so we always went to another plays. Thanks for the nice time...

    You can't stay closer to the beach than this, as soon as you wake you can just walk to the beach and surf. The restaurant has great pasta. Make sure to book your stay, that way the oasis staff will send a van to pick you up and drive you to the hostel for free. Wifi here is only available at the reception, so grab your surfboard and head off to the beach.

    Amazing view, oceanfront. The small bungalow was a good value for the price. Pros: ocean view, comfy beds, the waitress at the restaurant is really sweet Cons: having to drive or walk over a shallow river to get there, food at the restaurant isn’t very good, shower pressure is very low, the only available fridge for guests is in a room that gets locked at 830pm

    beautiful place, great location for surfing. But very quiet, no backpackers at all when I stayed there. No shared kitchen and no shop nearby, so avoid this place if you’re a backpacker on a budget who wants to meet new people. Other than that, you’ll be fine.

    Nice place to stay but it would be even better if we can have a commun kitchen. If you get bored just grab a board and go ride some waves.

    WIFI DOESNT WORK AND IF IT SOMEHOW HAPPENS TO WORK THE STAFF CLOSES IT AT 8PM - so if you have deadlines don't come here. The location is nice because the beach is beautiful and surfing lessons are good and cheap Sometimes the river you have to cross is a bit problematic because water is so high NO KITCHEN FOR OWN COOKINGS, food at the restaurant is good tho, breakfast is a bit overpriced

    It’s really a great place for surfers and the atmosphere is just something else. The food in the restaurant was great and the location was even better. But although you can lock your dorm “house”, it would’ve been great, if there were lockers inside. They only have some at the reception, which is not open 24/7. Also the bathroom wasn’t clean and the water pressure of the shower was terrible.

    Not sure if it was the people we shared our dorm with or if it was the hostel it Self but either the facilities were gross. They do clean everyday but still everything is full of sand, the shower doesn‘t drain and the water was not even a little warm. The beach is still stunning and the location is very unique. Over all depending on your hygene standard you should be careful to book this hostel.
