Property Description

Hola! This is the Kraken Hostel and we want you to stay here! We're right in the center of downtown, next to the church, the plaza, and townhall. We're close to everything: beaches, bars, shopping, markets, bus stops, etc. Right now during the summer months we offer A/C in two of our dorms and no A/C in one of them at a cheaper rate. We have free daily activities, taking you to beautiful beaches and waterfalls, going on a hike, a tour of the town, or going out to party! We have a rooftop bar that operates most nights of the week for sunset happy hour (pre-game!). We're a safe hostel with good vibes. All of our staff and volunteers are super friendly and helpful. We like adventure and a good party, and make the best food recommendations. So stop your search and come stay with us! Much love, fellow travellers!

Casa Kraken is located in between the church of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the main square (adjacent to the city hall). We are also a block away from the main area of the Malecon: the seahorse statue and the outdoor amphitheater (right next to Los Arcos).

In total we have three dorms: we have an eight bed female dorm and two ten bed mixed dorms, one with A/C and one without. They all come with oscolating floor fans and ceiling fans. There are also assigned lockers (with a padlock) inside the dorms for each guest. Staff members organize bar crawls, day trips to the beach, various hikes, and Spanish lessons; feel free to ask for any events! We have a beautiful ocean and city view from our rooftop terrace that is not to be missed.

PROS Super nice people working and staying there. Good international vibe. Good location downtown walking to everything. Nice that they have free breakfast too! CONS Crackhead playing bad bunny on boombox 10pm-midnight right outside hostal. Loud as hell sometimes with street noise.

I had a really great time during my two days at Casa Kraken. I spent a couple days talking to a guy who's stayed there 11 times, so the hostel gets a good review for getting repeat business from great guests. There is a rooftop terrace with an ocean view and a second floor common area with a slight ocean view and some couches and chairs for hanging out. The cons of the place if you want to call them that are the slightly see-through bathroom stalls. The beds are just ok, not bad not pods.
