          A nice place with the layout and hammocks but staff were often unfriendly . breakfast "included" only consists of a roll if they even remember to put it out. Could maybe have more keys for the rooms with 4+ people.

          About
          Hotel description
          Our modern rooms are IMMACULATE, as noted by the Lonely Planet, exceptionally clean, airy, and bright with beautiful ceramic-tiled floors and baths, large windows, and masterfully-crafted wooden balconies with hammocks and amazing ocean views. We are very lucky and very grateful to our guests for the very positive word of mouth recommendations that ensure that our hostal remains one of the most popular and vibrant in town. In fact, most of our guests tell us that they arrived at our hostal because of great reviews from fellow travelers. WHAT SETS US APART: -LOCATION/ VIEWS: Hostal Pakaloro is in the center of town (amid all of the restaurants, shops, and bars) with our hostal just a few steps from the ocean and on the river bedside which allows for truly inspiring views of the ocean, river, and town, as well as the surf break, sunsets, sunrises, and beachgoers. -STRUCTURE/HARMONY: The owner built her hostal around 3 very important requirements: large balconies for relaxation and socializing, hammocks galore for daydreaming and enjoyment, and large windows for a constant flow of air, light, and views. -SOCIALIZING: Our hostal is always full of energy and great ambiance thanks to the coolness of our guests. Our large balconies, communal rest/ lounge areas, and communal kitchen make it easy for our guests to socialize and feel at home. -PRICE! PRICE! PRICE!: We are the VALUE PLAY in town. Our prices are extremely reasonable and economic for what we offer. -COMFORT: You’ll find an immaculate, spacious modern room with a balcony, hammock, fan, 24 hour hot water, private bath, DIRECTV and WIFI (in lounge areas and some balconies). And the intangibles are even better: breathtaking views, an ambiance of camaraderie, and security!
