    Viejamar is a place where you are very happy to be there and sad to leave. I booked 2 nights and stayed 2 weeks. The place rodrigo has put up is magical, really a paradise right in the beach. It has a bar, hot showers, ac, good breakfast, lockers, comfortable beds, a swimming pool, surf boards, the nicest common areas, kitchen, sunsets from the balcony, a bonfire spot, great volunteers and the best vibes. Thank you all very much for everything. Will come back for sure and I recommend it 200%.

    Viejamar hostel was a great place to stay, the place itself is very pretty and with great atmosphere. The staff was incredibly helpful and cool. It's located right on the beach so as soon as you step out, you're there. The only downside is that the weather there is a little chilly, but the beach is really nice with great waves. We almost didn't want to leave. I left to go to montañita and regretted it immediately, I wish I had stayed there longer.

    Beautiful hostel, location is amazing. The hostel is run by volunteers who are a bit too much into their “staff only policy” which is sad because we didn’t feel very welcomed

    Enjoyed our stay here! Very quiet relaxing hostel, we stayed for 6 days. Most of the time we relaxed by the sea or by the pool. Good places to visit nearby, los frailes beach was great! We also did the Isla De La Plata tour which was 100% worth it! So much to see. However we felt that the staff used the kitchen to much, there was never really enough space to cook. And they always seemed to be cooking something complex that took a long time. The room was okay and it had AC, big +. Recommend

    Great friendly vibe, awesome beachfront property with a lot of kitschy charm. Decent breakfast of eggs and croissants, good pizza place on the corner, but that's IT for food in the neighb. Water refills for .50 Bathroom floor was unfinished in cabin 4, so you get your feet dirty and have to get back into bed? Showers were salt water, but hot. Great place to chill away from Montanita and Puerto Lopez.

    Wonderful volunteers running the place. Very nice atmosphere, being included in the family immediately. Only negative part is that the room and bathroom is very mouldy

    The beds were dirty, the shower too. it is very far away from Puerto Lopez. The guy was nice but uneffective. There is a tax added at the price, never seen that with other hostels.
