    Hands down best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! Everything is so beautifully designed. The guest social space is amazing, great kitchen, loads of comfy seating and beautiful foliage around the pool. There is a large bar/restaurant area which hosts djs in the evenings. The atmosphere is amazing, the staff are super friendly and helpful. Dorm was clean, with cubby style bunks which meant lots of privacy and two massive en suite bathrooms with hot showers! Met amazing people, I will be back! Love!

    I loved everything about this place. All the staff here is amazing, they were all super friendly and enthusiastically helped me with anything I needed. The restaurant is delicious and convenient. The vibes were really good, I made friends within minutes of arriving. The entire hostel is just a comfortable place to relax and hang out. All the art at Somos from the walls to the t shirts is dope too. Thank you Somos!!

    Great little spot, definitely one of the more lively places in ST. It’s attached to a restaurant so there is music until about 11:30, so the dorm can be loud and if you go to bed early it can be a frustrating, but honestly the music was great so I didn’t mind! The AC didn’t work the first 2 nights but the staff got on it asap and fixed it. Shout out to Max at reception for making everything run smoothly. He was awesome and helped me with the shuttle service and Covid testing. Overall satisfied!

    Somos was clean and laid back. More private rooms than hostel, so theres a bit less of a social atmosphere than other hostels here. Still, if you meet the other people living there it can get social. Slightly overpriced, but good facilities make it worth it.

    Great solo trip experience. The common area facilitates making so many friends. There's an interesting mix of guests, many other solo travelers, surfers, non-surfers and people working remotely. The place was beautifully designed, modern and clean. Internet connection is good, compared to other areas in the town. Would recommend being openminded as it can get noisy in some evenings, but you can always join in.
