    LOVE this hostel. Have stayed twice before. Can’t beat it in the area of Popoyo. The dorms are huge and really clean. 4 bunks (8 beds) with 2 bathrooms/showers per dorm. Really close to the beach and can hire surf boards. And the breakfast and family style dinners are amazing - freshly caught sushi was so good. Hmmmmm. Can’t wait for the next trip! Thanks guys.

    Sick hostel with an epic crew! If you’re looking for a sweet spot to party just off the beaten track, this is THE place. Awesome beach close by with pumping waves when mother nature permits. Rooms are nice and new with an awesome feature of having 2 bathrooms/dorm. Plenty of great food options near by from fish tacos on the beach to restaurants serving the best wood fired pizza out of Italy. Perfect spot!!

    I had a great time at Ruamoko. The staff and owners were really helpful with everything. They have a sweet little puppy named miel! The rooms are super clean, awesome pool, great big portion family dinners (a great way to meet other travellers), cold beer, beach with waves just down the road. A few other good restaurants close by. I would recommend Ruamoko to anyone!

    Had a great time at Ruamoko. Turns out I was the first person to stay with them since reopening. Great place to chill in the daytime around the pool and chill out areas. Great location to go surf from as well as the beach is a 5 min walk. Place has a bar and kitchen so can get food/drink whenever you want. Plenty of space to socially distance and hostel rooms are kept v clean, staff are great fun as well, will be returning for sure!!!

    Really nice hostel. Had a great communal area with a lot of hammocks for people to chill. The staff do their best to make the hostel enjoyable for everyone. Downside is like said in other reviews the location. The hostel is pretty much in the middle of no-where and about a 25 minute walk to the beginners surfing beach. However when you get there it is beautiful and not busy full of people/surfers. The breakfast and the family dinner were also good and reasonably priced.

    Super nice place with awesome pool. Staff were really nice and liked to have fun. A bit of a walk to the beach and surf spots. The food was good but really wished there was a guest kitchen in order to save some money!

    Not really in Popoyo. Nice pool and good if you want a few (expensive) beers. Beach is a 10 min walk and there’s nice pizza round the corner. Woken up a few times by people coming in drunk so if you’re up for a party then you’re going to right place.
