    This is a fantastic hostel with everything you need. It’s right on the beach and the staff are super friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious. Free to use kayaks are a bonus although we didn’t have time to use.

    Great location just steps away from the ocean. I stayed in the 12 bed mixed dorms for almost two weeks, and loved every second. The bunks had curtains if you wanted some privacy, and the hostel was a five minute walk from the main square.

    The location is great, and the dock for hostel guests only was beautiful and a great place to relax. Staff were super helpful and informative when I checked in. Not a great place if you’re solo travelling as there’s not really a common area apart from the public bar and a lot of people kept to themselves. There’s not much of a kitchen for cooking- just a microwave and toaster with a few utensils. Its a really easy walk from the ferry which is good!

    This place is lacking the hostel vibe. It has dorm rooms but feels more geared to families and couples than solo travel

    It’s an okay place to stay. Not dirty but not clean. Tried to take a tour but he didn’t show to work the day we tried to schedule. We were super thankful that they made arrangements for us through another company. The restaurant has American food for American prices. I wasn’t impressed. Although this is typical of San Pedro there wasn’t any draw for me to chose the Sandbar, especially since the waitress was super snobby. Although I wasn’t completely disappointed, I wouldn’t go back.

    This is the only hostel on San Pedro so the expectation of meeting a lot of other people are high. But for us it wasn't. The Hostel is combined with a restaurant so the place to chill on couches are zero. For me it was more a restaurant where you can sleep. They weren't really a kitchen to make your own food. The personnel were absolutely not friendly with us, even if we were from the hostel. The plus is the beds where really nice and confortable, room with ac and they give you towels.
