    I really enjoyed my stay at the Pacific Buddha. It is exactly what I was looking for. A clean, chill hostel where you can relax and enjoy the good vibe. It is very well located, few steps from the beach and any store you might need. Angie and Taylor are super nice and willing to help with any assistance. Angie has been amazing helping me buying something online and she even went downtown and paid for me!! Really an angel. I can’t say enough good things about this place. Come check it out

    This is the place to stay if you're gonna be there for a few days. The small size of the hostel creates an awesome built in community that feels safe & welcoming. Power was out the 1st night (everywhere in the area) & we felt comfortable enough to sleep with the door open to beat the heat. Don't come here if you're not self sufficient or don't want to pick up after yourself. The hostel is BEAUTIFUL, comfortable, and just steps from the beach. Definitely a place to rest and blaze it.
