    The hostel is beautiful, cleaned regularly, and in a great location. The breakfast is basic bread, butter, jam, and an egg with coffee/tea/juice but very tasty! And the staff at this hostel is amazing!! They are all so caring and helpful. They offered us blankets 12 hours after our checkout while we were waiting for our night bus. 100% recommend!! :D

    Really nice and relaxing hostel with 5 minute walk to the beach and on the restaurant street. There’s one club with loud music next to it BUT only on Fridays and Saturdays.

    Very chill place with awesome staff (all the Argentinian volunters were very helpful and friendly). There is a cool bar and a pool, tennis table, big lockers. Beds are comfortable and the showers were hot. It is not a party hostel as Loki and WildRover, but it has a great vibe. The only thing I did not like is there are no fans and the dorms get quite hot during the night. Location is at the end of Mancora, right next to the beach and many restaurants, 15 mins walk to the buses. Recommended!

    Gave us a bed at 4.30 am which was AMAZING! Location was perfect! Walking distance from bus, beach and all the shops. No kitchen that u use and no fruit at breakfast. But cute cats, ping pong table and eggs with breakfast nice. Pool area is really nice as well.

    I stayed here during the week, so I'm unsure if the atmosphere changes over the weekend, but no real complaints. Decent hostel with plenty of spots to relax, was mellow atmosphere, with not very many people there. Don't pay more than 3 soles for a motor taxi!

    We stayed for one night in a private room. Great location and served a purpose with a lovely breakfast, we were woken in the night by a couple in the room next to us going hell for leather. Also the girl on reception was a big of grief machine, seemed like we ruined her day when we checked in 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I booked this place because it looked a bit nicer than the other options, but I was very disappointed. They charged me 20 s for coming early and staying after check out, but didn't let me use the facilities. One worker in particular was so rude, but the other two were so so great. The rooms were clean but common spaces were covered in dirt, looks like it hasn't been cleaned in weeks.

    Woke up covered in masses of bites, all up our over ourselves and on my face. Well over 50. Looks like they probably have bed bugs as there was also blood on the pillow.

    Palosanto has potential to be a great hostel, good size rooms, comfy beds a big swimming pool and bar area and is close to the beach and many places to eat. Unfortunately it is not welcoming for solo travellers. It seems many people live/work there but do not support a friendly vibe, sitting amongst themselves. I stayed 4 nights and each day/night the same. They have a swimming pool which is never clean so not used, the bar creates no social atmosphere. Hopefully this place could be revamped
