    The staff was super helpful and nice. The location is perfect. Chill atmosphere. Good facilities, big kitchen and the showers are the best ones we've seen during our trip! Highly recommended.

    We had such a great time staying at Tipi Hostel - we ended up extending to four nights! The aircon in the room kept our little Tipi nice and cool, the pool area, where we sunbathed most days, was great and we made almost all our own food in the kitchen there. The staff was very friendly and the sweet lady running the place was especially a delight - thank you so much for all your help with our travelarrangements! We would most definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Playa Venao!

    Super quiet, great place to chill before hitting the social scene down the beach. Summer camp vibes, huge kitchen and separate showers/bathroom building. Staff is helpful and accommodating.

    Traveling with my partner and two kids, I reserved the four beds of the standard 4-bed mixed dorm. When we arrived, there was no such dorm available. We accepted a transfer to a three-bed private room (putting the two kids in a single bed) that, we were told, would be billed at the same price. When we checked out, four days later, I had the surprise of learning that the "same price" was only for the first night! Not cool! Also, a dirty kitchen area was not the staff's fault: check the guests!

    Female receptionist staff was not too friendly. She didn’t do anything about a person smoking inside the dorm room and she was not very accommodating with changing of room types.

    We arrived at 8pm. There was nobody at reception. Apparently the guy went out for dinner. We waited for an hour. We had made a reservation on Hostelworld for one double bed. Not the Twin. The guy kept telling me I made the wrong reservation. I showed him the reservation. Still didn't believe me. (The next day, the manager/owner told me I was correct and offered to move us). The pool is nice. The kitchen is nice except there are no cups, bowls, or glasses.

    Overall a good place to spend the night in a private room. Most of the time we had quite bad internet connection and didn’t feel very safe due to an incident that happened the first night. If you are coming as a backpacker and looking for a nice vibe direct next to the water we would rather suggest to stay at one of the other Hostels next to Tipi right on the beach.
