Property Description

With over 20 years combined backpacking experience, are proudly focused on creating a place for backpackers to feel peaceful and relaxed in a homey atmosphere. We're extremely clean, secure and purposely smaller than other hostels allowing for an environment where everyone can come together. Our specialty decorations give an uplifting feeling to all who walk through the doors, our colorful garden has a few different chill out areas(with grass) and the kitchen is always kept clean as are our bathrooms and showers .Our surf classes are done with a top notch instructor and we can also arrange private surf tours. In addition we help organize turtle release tours, English/Spanish lessons, horseback riding, motorbikes, massages, yoga, and mystical trips in the mountains.

We're located in the heart of La Punta, 30 meters to the beach and even less to the local fruit and veggie market. The area is filled with amazing restaurants of all styles from fish tacos and ceviche to Italian or even Thai food and the best part is everything is within a 3 minute walk!!! There are also several convenience stores open late and a health food shop filled with incredible items.

All our rooms have quality fans and mattress'. Our dorm fits 8 comfortably very strudy wooden bed frames and sufficient electrical outlets for all. Our private rooms are spacious with windows that overlook the garden.

I once extended my stay and then I returned, best location for the hostels in the area, chilled atmosphere, very very clean, the ladies who manage it are always responsive and nice and it seems that they still doing staff to get better. I could not recommend it more, the reviews do not make it justice, I loved it, if I m ever back I will book there for sure!

Cute small hostel, kitchen is we equipped and it is so close to the beach and shops etc. there is only two toilets and unfortunately one was blocked for the entire length of our stay. Also seemed to be low or out of toilet paper every day. Check in process not the easiest and it does get hot at night
