    Had a blast staying here. Close to markets, dining, drinking, golf cart rentals, shopping, and the sea! Took the day snorkeling tour hosted through the hostel and it was a great time.

    Awesome location, the docks and swimming area out front were really nice. Restaurant/bar was also nice, decent food a bit on the more expensive side although they do give guests 10% off and there are many happy hour specials. Bathrooms were not cleaned frequently enough. Lockers in room but the doors to all rooms had no locks, at night the main door was locked with a passcode everyone is given and supposedly a security guard outside but did not see him. Overall good for money

    Perfectly located. Lively atmosphere but will still allow you to sleep at night. Stayed one night and extended our stay because we had a good sleep and there was hot water! Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

    Sandbar was a great place to stay; conveniently located and easy to get to. Check in was simple, no problems whatsoever. AC in the bedrooms were a plus, beds were comfortable, available storage, and free wifi. The one downside to this hostel was the bathroom. Water pressure became worse as my four day trip proceeded, at times even cold, and the bathrooms were just in general not always kept up with. Staff were nice if a question needed answering.

    Best features are a great location and atmosphere. Downsides are no kitchen and no place to put your stuff in the dorms shower area. Being as it is a beach location, and the entire bar and lounge area is on the sand, it could use an area to rinse and hang clothes. There's no separate area from the bar restaurant for guests to bring food from the grocery store it feels a bit awkward. That and to ask to borrow something from the bar. It definitely feels like they want to sell you their food.

    Great location but didn’t have the greatest hangout area to meet fellow travelers. Loved having a dock to sun bath and swim off and also really appreciated the air conditioned dorm rooms and hot water! Staff wasn’t super welcoming and didn’t try very hard to socials with the guests, but maybe that was just my experience. Otherwise I had a great stay!

    Very Good

    The rooms had air conditioning all day which was good. The beds were ok. No kitchen available which is awful. The breakfast in the bar is expensive but you dont have any other option. The rooms are open to anyone outside of the hostel which can facilitate burglary (the access is on the side and no keys are required).

    This place was alright. The beds were great, they had curtains to offer privacy and a ton of storage space underneath. The room had AC which was a big win. However, security to get into the rooms was basically non-existent. The doors didn't lock or anything, and while I never felt unsafe per se I still thought it was an oversight. The girl's bathroom needed improvement. Only two showers without changing spaces and barely any water pressure. But this is probably the best you'll find in San Pedro.
