    Such a lovely hostel - with some of the best facilities I’ve had in a while. The manager and his staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and have gone above and beyond to help me or other travelers. Definitely visit Cabo de la Vela and Punta Gallinas, a top tip is to do it by motor!! Two guys I met in Cabo de la Vela did that and said is was incredible and worth every penny. Thanks for having me, I’ll be back!

    Would give 10 if it wouldn’t be for the location. However, this is an amazing Hostel. Very modern with new showers, they have a good kitchen and vents in the rooms. The staff is very friendly, and beliefe them when they say it is dangerous to go to Punta Gallina without a guid. We even got lost with a guid, imagine.
