This hostel is located a couple of blocks from malecon and 2-3 blocks from bus stop. But it’s not like a huge advantage, since the village is small and everything within 10-20 minutes walk. I had a single room with bathroom en-suite. It was not huge but big enough. There is a fan in the room. Also outside there is...

This hostal is awesome! You have great staff who are welcoming, professional and speak fluent English. The kitchen was outdoors and you could meet a lot of people while they were cooking- although some people were horrible about cleaning up after themselves. The showers were hot, there were lockers in each dorm, places to camp, the rooms were clean and...

I came here after being disgusted with Sol Inn thats down the street. The service was great the moment I arrived. My favorite part was that the place was immaculate! The leaves are swept from the lawn daily and the whole place is scrubbed down. The shared kitchen was cleaned even better than we left it once we went to...

I don't always like mosquito land, but the Hotel Maxima is a good place to stay. Maxima and her husband try to make it a very good place and did a very good job. The rooms are amply and clean. They have a quite cool cat! But Puerto Lopez is mosquito land, so be warned!

Hostal Maxima is a well-run backpacker's hostal with a nice courtyard, balconies, lounge area and kitchen. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful and make a real effort at keeping the busy place clean and well-organized. It is a good place to meet other travelers, as there are usually people in the kitchen or other common areas, and the...

This hostel is quiet but still a good place for meeting people in the communal area. The showers are warm and rooms clean. There is a well equipped and clean kitchen. We had room 37, which is right at the top, it felt like heaving are own penthouse with sea view! You do hear the streetnoise in the morning. We...

My wife and I had a great experience here. The owners are very friendly and helpful with planning for the trip to Isla de la plata. We were planning only a couple days stay, but ended up staying for a week. Sometimes the owner has some projects underway, and when we came they could use some assistance, so we worked...

Hotel Maxima has a mix of rooms, while we were there it was being rennovated and extended so some were a work in progress. However the completed rooms are clean and well looked after. Mosquito nets are a little old and not so effective so you may want to use your own. Having said that I wasn't bitten. The communal...
