    The owner/operator is on top of everything. He’s there partying and catering to your wants/needs. Isolated location is terrific to get away. Very safe. Best waves and terrific food. He’s also involved in a turtle sanctuary that’s real cool.

    The black beach of El Paredon was mesmerizing (amazing to watch the storms roll in via the Pacific Ocean while laying on a hammock)! I met some phenomenal people at this hostel which is directly attributable to the atmosphere of the hostel. The staff did a great job in cleaning up the sand brought in by guests. Keep in mind the showers are salt water and there is no WiFi (nice separation from reality). My only knock is that the pool area gets pretty dirty/messy during the day.

    We have had the best time at the Driftwood Surfer! The place is great, couldn't be more relaxed, the food is really really good (especially the Fajitas and the breakfast Pancakes), but what makes the Hostel so special is the staff! Everyone is incredibly nice and helpful, feels like home! We will be back :-) Claudia + Emanuel

    Has an awesome location, right on the beach. Food is reasonably priced and pretty good. It’s definitely got a culture of drinking by the pool all day of that’s your thing. Not really a surfers vibe. Could invest in some more short boards. But apart from the surfboards, it’s overall pretty good. Aircon in the rooms. Heaps of staff, everywhere, so easy to get help. Surfs right at your doorstep. Bathrooms were clean. Yeah pretty good I guess

    The hotel is good, fun. Not that clean. The food is really good. I do not recommend open an account on them, because they might charge you extra things. Its better to pay each time.
