    This was a good place with a great staff. Close to the beach. They had a nice pool and cheap beer. They will also pick you up from the airport which was nice since I didn't speak spanish. I would stay here again.

    It’s a nice hostel, perfect location with a really nice pool. We got a private room but it had no air con which was the only negative as El Tunco is so so hot. But other than that it’s a great hostel and very chill.

    Probably the best option as a single backpacker looking to meet people or have a bit of atmosphere in el tunco. The dorm was comfy and showers hot and good pressure. Nice pool and area to sunbathe and central location. Not a big party place or a lot of activities on offer but you could relax and meet people here pretty easily

    I stayed here for a night on the way to Léon. Basic enough hostel, geared mainly for surfers. Basic enough facilities, but with a bar and a pool on site.

    Only stayed one night but the staff seemed very miserable seeming annoyed at everything and there was absolutely no atmosphere or social activities going on.

    Stayed in a 9 bed mixed dorm. No bunk beds so the room is very open, the beds are very close together! Two of them are right beside the door and the bathroom, lucky it isn’t full. The bathroom in the room is awful. It hasn’t been cleaned in the 3 days I’ve been here, the hand soap has not been refilled, it looks like the toilet must have overflowed last night because there’s water on the floor in the dorm outside the bathroom. The AC works, the pool nice. The hangout area is fine.
