    Love this place! Awesome over the water deck with lounge chairs and shade, perfect for relaxing for the day. Caught an early morning Yoga class for $5 on the deck. Good breakfast, friendly staff and cold A/C. No full kitchen but they do let you use fridge and microwave so it worked for heating up my leftovers and they happily gave me plates and silverware. Caught a cheap sunset tour of secret beach with their shop on site and had a great time! Would for sure stay here again. Great vibes!

    Great Hostel! Joined for their weekly meet and greet dinner since I was traveling solo and got an awesome dinner and rum punch for $5! Beds were comfy, they all had a privacy curtain, outlet and shelf. A/C was cold, showers were hot. Overall great experience! Can't wait to come back!

    Very friendly staff. A fun place with an open bar by the water and an easy way to meet people. Rooms are cleaned daily and the food is soooo good. Rooms are cold at night with the ac which was great. I’d definitely recommend!

    This is a great hostel! Super good laid back vibes, awesome staff, and just a fun time. I ended up having an extended stay due to injury and everyone was so helpful and kind. One of the better hostels I've stayed at, highly recommend!

    Hostel was nice and clean. Toilet ran out of toilet paper and I told reception twice but they still didn't change it. Also we got ripped off with snorkelling trip! Booked a full day which only ended up being 930 to like 230pm, cost 85 and we had to buy food on top. Our friends tour was only 55 usd for 930am to 630pm with lunch included.... Don't book at the hostel!

    I stayed at Sandbar for 5 days and met many others who had shorter and longer stints. Sandbar is the place to go for those in their twenties to last thirties. We stayed in the 12-Bunk unit and quickly made friends with our bunkmates. The hospitality from owners, bar&kitchen staff, and cleaners was by far the best experienced on the island and will recommend Sandbar to ANYONE looking for San Pedro accommodations. A quick jaunt to the beach, pri bars, and main Streets. A/C in rooms.

    Very Good

    Great Hostel and Bar, At first it's a Bar. You go there for the fun of the place. They don't have a shared kitchen, you can't cook there. The shared room has solid beds with privacy. They are great, Room has AC. They give free filtered water. Their tap water is a bit salty. The shower is the worst part of the hostel, not working very well. Don't expect a hot shower. The proprietaries are amazing

    It’s probably the only backpacker hostel on the island as everything is resorts. It’s basic and there is no real cooking facilities. You can use a fridge (which needs a clean) and the microwave in the commercial kitchen. Dorms are ok. 12 bed. Good AC and each bed has a curtain as well as power. Although the mattress is like some weird acupressure as you can feel EVERY spring. Showers are weak and cold.
