Good value for money. Loved the location being right in the village. Monkeys in the trees next door! Cool area upstairs for chilling in the heat of the day (it catches the wind) or for beers and pool at night. Not currently serving food but it looked like they were setting up a kitchen downstairs. We could store our surfboards in a room that got locked overnight. Quick walk over the hill to the beach and beyond.

the host was super nice! I was very sick and without hesitating he drove me to the hospital and was very helpful with translations and all. el gigante is very small but cute and the hostel is the same: small but cute and if you don‘t expect the cleanest place and any sort of luxury it‘s very good:)

My friend and I stayed in a private room here for 3 nights. It was a really good price and the room was really big and clean. The host was so awesome and helped us with any requests or questions we had. It’s located just outside of town about a 2 minute walk from the beach, grocery store, and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here!!
