The Driftwood Surfer was an amazing experience! They have it all: good food, nice and comfy rooms, awesome bar and terrace, pool with bar and it is right at the beach! Every night we had a different activity that made us feel part of the hostel. 100% recommended.

I've been a client from The Driftwood for a few years now and every time I'm there I have the best time! The staff is always friendly and gives an atmosphere that makes me feel like I'm with family. The rooms/dorms are really comfy (and with A/C, so important!), amazing pool, right in front of the beach, volleyball every sunset, the most amazing buffet dinners... Excellent value for such a place! Definitely coming here when visiting El Paredón 💞
