    Had a very pleasant stay in this beautiful hostel. Excellent outdoor facilities including a gym(!) and a large pool. Has a good restaurant on-site and a kitchen. Staff were helpful and professional. No real complaints but if I hear Gnarls Barkley again I'm going to go Crazy... Location is 5 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from town. Most hostels in Palomino have a good location because you're somewhere between town and the beach. Would definitely recommend and stay here again - thanks!

    Great hostel close to the beach! The pool was amazing, very clean and had quite a few spots to relax. There were hammocks all around the hostel to chill in out of the sun and a pool table for anyone to use. The staff were very friendly and kept the place very clean. Breakfast was included and was a choice off their menu, about four different options. Very good deal.

    The place is very pretty and the facilities are great. Dormitories are situated next to the road and are noisy. They are also hot as they only have fans not aircon. Some mosquito nets have holes. The beach is a short walk away. Breakfast is nice.

    The pool in the hostel was really nice, and the restaurant has delicious, reasonably priced food. The wifi was also pretty good. However, the beds were soo uncomfortable, the mosquito nets had holes in them and the rooms have no air con and if you’re on the top bunk, the fan doesn’t reach your bed. The shower was pretty poor - no head and cold, but we found this in most hostels in the area.

    I booked this hostel for a night and paid the deposit. When I went to check in at night, the reception was closed and the security wouldn't let me in because there was no one to check me in. There was no other open hostels so I had to sleep outside. I'm now trying to get my deposit back.

    the bathroom was very dirty, the rooms being so close to the street so we couldn’t sleep. I left the hostel after a night and the hostel did not return the money for the next night even expressing my annoyance for the dirt in the bathroom. They do not care much about how the travelers feel, they were interested in having the money.
