I have nothing to complain about. The staff is great. Our shower got clogged and they fixed it the same day. Good breakfast, good vibe. They arrange barbecues for dinner and we also had a nice little salsa fiesta one night. Really close to everything like the bus terminal, shopping and the beach playa brava :)

Good things first: this hostel has a great location, I liked the deck bar and the breakfast is good. The rooms are clean, but they use air freshener to cover the mould. If they wanna give you room 14 don't take it. It's very loud because outside is the reception and the common area. You hear everyone thats coming or...

Great location, nice rooms, good wifi, good AC & nice common areas. The staff here are really nice & there is a nice mix of visitors. Nice breakfast but the only feedback I would give is that the bar seems a little overpriced for a hostel but they do allow you to bring wine in as that's not sold in...

Well located! You can walk to the beach, bus station, main street and port. Very friendly staff, all places very clean, big kitchen with 4 fridges and a good bar outside. Simple but nice breakfast. I recommend!

As a disclaimer, we were there on Friday and Saturday nights during high season. In terms of the positive, it is a nicely appointed hostel. The location is great, and the staff are friendly. However, if you're after a quiet stay, this is NOT the place. The music starts to crank up at about 9. I was scuba diving the...

I fell in love with this hostel when we stayed there. The breakfast is fantastic for a hostel, the atmosphere is wonderful, we met many friends and had many good conversations. The hostel is only a couple blocks away from both beaches and all the major attractions in the city. The rooms are cleaned every day and have very good...

The location of this hostel is great, so are the common spaces to hang out. They have a lovely cat called Dumas. Breakfast is great, with scrambled eggs. The room however wasn't so great. I stayed in a female dorm with en-suite bathroom. One bathroom for six ladies can be a problem anyway but besides that it wasn't very clean...

All in all, there is no way to recommend this place. Beds are ok, locations is brilliant, and atmosphere is nice (made some good friends there), but it doesn`t make up for the staff there. 1. Flight was 2h delayed and I missed the last bus to Punta. Had to wait up to 5.30am next day to see if I...

“Don't get the rooms near the kitchen. Try to get a private room.”

“the private rooms are the best of course, but if you dont want to spend a lot of money choose the 4 bed dorms as the difference in price with the 6 bed dorms is not much but you'll be much more comfortable for sure!”
