Adequate hostel and nothing more. The location is clearly fantastic, but the beds and overall decor are old and tired. There was no atmosphere at all.

Not a bad hostel. Roof terrace is fantastic and an easy place to meet people. Staff are helpful and welcoming and take you on nights out. Beds and bedrooms are a little old but are clean enough and do the job.

Very clean well maintained hostel that has the look and feel of a hotel. There's a busy bar right outside - this is good and bad in that it's a cool place to hang out, but there are locals there too so it's difficult to find people to talk to as a solo traveller. There is a hostel only area at the back but that wasn't particularly busy when I was there. Maybe put a bar in the back too or organise nights out where people meet there first. Do the hostel organised wine tour - it's great!

Nice hostel, but severely lacking atmosphere. The dorm is great - big and airy and normal beds, not bunk beds. There is a bar, but for the 4 nights I was there, it was never open. There was also no music in the common area so there was zero atmosphere. But still probably the best option in Arica.

An OK hostel, but nothing more. Stay at Books hostel around the corner - infinitely better! I stayed during carnival and whilst the location is good, the hostel didn't organise any tours, trips or activities. This would have been nice, particularly during carnival when there is an overwhelming number of options in what to do. It is also far from clean, and the triple bunk beds rock around as soon as anyone moves. However, the included dinner each night is great and brings everyone together.

It was OK. The beds were comfy, the air con was good and it was spotlessly clean. However, there wasn't a fantastic atmosphere, maybe because the back common area is tiny and the front one is kind of part of the restaurant. And the onsite bar is expensive.

Nice hostel with a lot of potential but in my opinion not done quite right. Why does the bar shut at 10pm?! If you're going to charge for breakfast, it needs to be significantly better than breakfasts included for free at other hostels. Overall, nice, clean hostel but lacking atmosphere. Super cool area though so good if you're in a group.

Very good hostel. The view from the bar over the bay is fantastic. And the food from the kitchen is the best I've had a from a hostel for a very long time - tasty, big portions, and not expensive. Good party atmosphere. Don't use the surf school the Hostel recommend - use Nexus surf school half way down the beach. Best surf school I've used around the world and the same cost as the hostel one.

Nice homely hostel. Immaculately clean all the time. Chilled out vibe. Swimming pool and pool table and great. Meals cooked by the hostel are tasty. But it is a far way away from the town - not a huge problem, but be aware! Getting to Florianopolis on non-connecting bus, changing in Porto Alegre was a bit of a nightmare. Bus doesn't get to Chuy until half midnight, earliest, and a lot of the busses from Porto Alegre onwards were sold out. Apparently go to Brazilian Chuí and get a bus from there

Nice homely hostel. Clean and well furnished rooms. BBQ asado was great and brought everyone together. Staff were very friendly and meant well, but didn´t really know much about the area e.g. Laundry, football etc. A simple info sheet from management would sort this out

Really brilliant hostel, and I've stayed in a lot. Lots of staff who are friendly and helpful, activities every evening/day (cheap Tapas and night out every Thursday), right next to the beach and a roof top terrace with a BBQ. Hire a car (doyouspain.com) and drive the GC200 coast road and then cut inland on the GC210- one of the most impressive drives I've ever done.

The makings of a great hostel. Still being built, in that common areas are still being finished. But the rooms are done and are of a high quality, comfy beds. Location is little out of the way but with a scooter for 300 INR, you can easily get anywhere. Best hostel staff I met in India - Ron was super helpful.

Great hostel. Social areas really work, so it's easy to meet people to head to the beach or a night out. They also organise trips which is great, as well as a shuttle to their other hostels. New gate installed so that should solve any security issues people had in the past. Staff were OK.

This is one of the best Hostels I have ever stayed in. Immaculately clean, everything looks almost brand new. With lots of common rooms, it's super easy to meet people, be it for surf lessons or a night out. Tío and Michelle, the reception staff, could not be more helpful and welcoming.

A very nice hostel. Everything is spotlessly clean and the beds are hotel quality. Little quiet but that is just due to being in Surabaya. The owner is one the most genuinely kind and helpful people you will ever meet. He often takes people out around the city and can help you with most questions you may have about travelling around the area.

Hi, thanks for your review. We enjoy your company and we are glad that you are happy and satisfied with our accommodation and service. We endeavour to treat our guests as our new friends and provide assistance and information what Surabaya and Indonesia can offer. I hope to see again in the future. Cheers.

Bar crawl on Saturday night was poor but apparently this was a once off with a new company. Monday night out with the hostel staff was great.
