    I’ve been travelling for 9 months and the owner is by far the best Hostel owner I’ve met. He was so welcoming and helpful; he recommended local, authentic places to eat, invited us to learn Salsa and even invited us to eat some amazing Shrimp that he had prepared. The dorm I stayed in was nice, it had 2 bathrooms! And the overall location of the hostel was amazing. Thanks for having me!

    Lovely staff - I arrived early in the morning exhausted from a nightbus and no-one was around so I passed out in a hammock; when they woke up I think they let me sleep a while before showing me straight to my room even though it was well before check-in. Not a social hostel but definitely recommended for Puerto Lopez.

    My stay here was great. The staff were all super friendly and offered to help with planning tours and everything! I also did the surf lesson with Miguel and would recommend it I found you want to try to learn! My only critique is the kitchen seemed a little dirty.

    The hostel is at a good location. In the night there were dogs ( from the hostel itself) waking us up by roaring. The breakfast is not included ( listed of a poster on the back of your door) Its good to stay and safe!

    Well located and the staff were helpful when you asked questions. Facilities were fine, noise travelled quite easily which was frustrating as I was coming off the back of an overnight bus. Overall, it was fine.

    When I stayed in this room I had the worst sleep of my life. The room was boiling hot, there were fans that did absolutely nothing. There were mosquitoes everywhere, the hostel needs mosquito nets. The beds are shaky, and since it’s so hot and miserable, the person above could not sleep either, moving around and shaking the bed and keeping me awake as well. They don’t give keys to lock the bedroom doors, and the staff do not speak English, only the owner who I saw only twice.

    Staff is really nice, location is very good near the beach, Nice rooftop terrace and beds are pretty comfy but we weren't sure if it was even cleaned when we arrived.. pretty fusty and kind of dirty, maybe it was just our room but we had better hostels so far. A kitchen would be very nice and keys for all guests (there's just one key per room).

    There was no hot water, no towel included, no air conditioner and no way to pay with card... though all these things are listed as included/available. Furthermore the breakfast was a tiny bowl of fruits. That’s all. When I insisted on paying with card, since the ad says it’s possible and even at the entrance of the hostel it’s written that they accept card, I was told the terminal doesn’t work and I have to pay in cash. I didn’t have enough cash on me. And then the owner started shouting at me.
