    Wonderful hostel, extremely well suited for whatever you have planned: sleep in, sleep early (no parties, inside the hostel;), go surfing, work or chill out (smoking and non smoking terraces), cook together, amazing pizza around the corner, the beach, the feckin beach is literally around the flipping corner hijo de tu padre. There was a problem with the hot water but, as I say, who gives a flying f!ck if it’s 24degrees! Most people book for a week and stay for 2, it’s that good 🤙

    One of the best hostel experiences I've had! Perfect place to go as a solo traveler and meet others. Everyone here was so friendly and inclusive, they'll make you feel right at home. Staff was so great and helpful and the beach is less than a 2 minutes walk from the hostel. I 100% recommend anyone to stay here.

    Great location, excellent staff. Bathrooms are next to the check in counter. Also, the rooms don’t have easy access to powerpoints. Only USB chargers beside your bed

    very nice environment and friendly staff, laundry service was available at reasonable price family dinner was highlight of our stay, we got a lot of recommendations for where to eat or visit places. little away from the centre but if you are using public transport or rent a car its very convenient. kitchen management could be improved by tagging groceries with checkout dates and throwing away stuff more frequently, but not a major point. washrooms were cleaned 100 times a day.

    Takes 2 mins to walk to La Cisor for surfing, very friendly owner and a community atmosphere. But it's the dirtiest, smelliest, most dilapidated hostel I've ever set foot in. My eyes watered whenever I had to step foot in the upstairs bathroom. The kitchen is covered in grease, every dish is dirty (even when 'cleaned'), and it's falling apart. In fact, the entire hostel seems to be falling apart. I don't get why this place is so highly rated, don't be fooled by the photos.
