    Perfect location, walking distance to the beach/stores and bars close before 1am (quiet for sleep). One of the best/most chill hostels I've stayed at - Wonderful common area. I was lucky to meet an amazing group of people here! We all went out to party elsewhere and got to relax/pregame back here. The hostel was clean (daily cleaning) and my private room was comfortable (Total 3 private rooms & 1 dorm room). The host is not around often and it really felt like a home/airbnb with your friends.

    Best location ever! Right in the middle of La Punta. Had a great time at this hostel. The fans at the end of the beds were so good every hostel needs them

    Had a really great stay here. Really easy to meet people bc its so small and location really cant be beat. FYI they are redoing the road in front of the hostel but it looks like at a really fast pace. The construction made it a hair confusing to find the building. But it looks like there will be a brand new paved path in front within a few days

    Excellent hostel in every aspect! The only thing I think you may want to know, it's that you can hear the music from the bars and restaurants on the main street. So it's a bit loudy, and if you are looking for silence and calm, maybe it won't be the one you are looking for.

    Amazing experience. The hostel has everything you need, it is around the corner of the main street where all the restaurants and bars are and 5 minute walking to the beach. The private rooms have enough space and a refrigirator that helps you keep your drinks cool. The common area is really chill and you can feel like you are at home! Would definitely go back.

    Family run hostel with the best people. Perfect location in La Punta, 2 streets from a big beach and next to great cafes restaurants and bars. Small with 1 dorm room of 8 and 2 privates so it’s nice to chat with everyone. It’s a really homey atmosphere with a stocked kitchen and big outdoor hang area. Staff is only there in the afternoon but communicate instantly through whatsapp and are super flexible with check in/out so there is never any problem. Main door has a code for convenience.

    It was a great location in La Punta, so close to beach. It is however situated right behind a bar which plays live music every night so is very noisy. It had a nice courtyard to hang out in with good kitchen facilities. Only 2 showers and toilets for the whole hostel. Would only stay here if you are keen to party

    Good value for money. Room and bed was very small. No A/C which is hard in the heat. It was clean and the location was excellent.
