My friends and I had a wonderful stay at the El Gecko Hostel. We spent two nights there and loved it. Ina and her family were extremely kind and offered us local fruit to try, which was amazing. The kitchen was well equipped, the tour they offered (bioluminiscence) was definitely worth it.

Lovely little place. Went in off season so not much going on and it was not like the other places we had been to before. The host was absolutely incredible, super friendly and helped us sort out taxi and buses. Cool gardens. Real family vibe.

Nice family-owned guesthouse off the beaten track. More of a guesthouse than an hostel. Everything was working and clean. During the day there is construction noise because they are building out the accommodation.
