The living room area is decorated like you would have it at home, so it has a very cosy feeling. I went there in October when it was still cold and found sitting by the fire place,with their gorgeous dog by my side, very comforting. The rooms are big with plenty, plenty of bunk beds, so it can get crowded,...

Very fine hostel, with great personal! We unfortunately had a short stay in Punta and could not appreciate more of the activities the people had in there! Absolutely, I’d recommend the Trip Hostel to everybody!

Overall it's a good hostel but the walls are very thin (upstairs) so you hear everything in the next rooms and around you. The mattresses are poor and need to be updated. The staff are great and very welcoming. Excellent common areas - lounge downstairs, deck upstairs The upstairs rooms are very basically built, feels almost like a shed or...

I stayed here with friends in February 2013. We had three beds in a six-bed mixed dorm and stayed for three nights. Pros: - Good location, five minutes from beach, bus station and start of the main drag. - Clean bathrooms. - Very comfortable, oversized beds. We were in triple bunks, which I usually hate, however these were rigidly fixed...

Cheap, well-located, great staff...The atmosphere is just amazing, it's an ideal place for those willing to make friends. The bathrooms on the first floor are shared but individual, which give you some sort of privacy. You will feel just like home, besides it's quite safe (people left their gadgets and mobiles on their beds, no one would touch your food...

“I preferred the 6 person room to avoid too many people who snore loudly :)”

“You might ask for rooms on the second floor if you want to avoid the noise from the common areas which are at ground level.”
FelipeF145, 28 Apr 2015 | Read review
“Avoid the private room which has no ventilation and is next to the communal smoking area. Mold and mildew are prevalent in the room.”
THEBSTravelers, 2 Nov 2014 | Read review
“I would say book the smallest bunk room you can - the 12 dorm when not full is fine, but if it is fully booked, it can be 'cosy'... but as most people spend little time in the room anyway, it shouldn't matter, as the atmosphere in the chill out spaces is great.”
