    Chilled out compared to big surf house (next door). Relatively new dorms and very chilled out. Good if you want to relax then walk next door to party.

    Me and my friend stayed here and loved it! Very simple place, but has nice, clean rooms and great vibes! Right on the beach too! One thing to note is that food here is super expensive, so if you’re going to playa popoyo for more than a couple days bring your own food! There is only one tiny market with expensive snacks, and there’s also no ATM in the area so bring lots of cash! Overall, we really enjoyed staying here :))

    Everything is good about this hostel EXCEPT the staff. They tried to rip me off so many times with change they would give me. And you couldn’t tell if the staff was just mad at the world all the time or what. Just be diligent with the change you should receive.

    Nice enough place to stay right on the water. Staff are friendly enough but there is no real vibe here. Air con in the room was awesome though.

    Decent hostel, nice location, but staff is terrible. Rude, they make you feel like you shouldn't bother them at all when you want to order anything or ask a question. I ended up hanging two hostels up the road, way better vibe.

    This place is a restaurant/bar with rooms attached. Dorm is very small and two of the lockers couldn't be used as they required a key which the staff didn't have. Kitchen was absolutely filthy! Barely any equipment and the sink is shared with the restaurant so they leave there dishes piled up and disgusting! While I was there two of the other dorms who had already paid and been there for a few days where kicked out to make way for 20 of the chefs friends! Laundry ruined at least 6 items of cloth
