    Beautiful place, with stunning gardens to chill and relax. Located in front of the beach, so you get warm nice sun right from outside your room. . Kitchen is well equiped and clean, I liked it. Staff is nice. People are more reservated but always up for going out or chilling, in general it's super laid back!it's far out from the main intersection but Santa is just one long street so you'll anyways find plenty of everything around. Right outside there are declicious cafes and stores. Loved it!

    Well if you're not super pro at surfing or if travelling alone, maybe dont stay here. It is quite cliquey, never sure who is a guest, staff or just from town, so meeting other people isnt that easy, as per other reviews. That aside it is a nice place, good location and the beach access is a gift. If youre happy just doing your own thing or you're in a group then youll be very happy here and despite the downsides i could happily stay here longer.

    Great location but the social scene felt like cliques. Lots of long term guests which kinda kept to themselves. Pay the extra $5 for a nicer room. Somehow I ended up in a room with no a/c or bathroom. Paid $5 to move to a room with a kitchen, bathroom, a/c.

    This hostel is perfect in that it’s right on the beach but you don’t get anything additional for the money you pay for the room... just free coffee. Even the water they charge you to drink. It’s nice there’s A/C since it definitely gets humid here. But just overall seemed a bit steep of an ask for what they give you. Nice chill out space with hammocks and nice yoga deck as well

    We have took the room with the Caravan and the AC didn't work they told us to fix it in 20 mins. We went to the beach 6 hours later we came back the AC didn't work after that a baby opossum appears not even talking about the smell that Caravan had. Security guy took out the baby opossum somehow and in the morning another baby opossum appeared, Obviously the smell was getting worst. Poor security guy found the mother opossum which was dead in the Caravan in the motor area.
