I've stayed at the Coco Loco twice and formed a great bond both times with all the people of Canoa. The hostel is right on the beach and its always happy hour at the bar. The owner Elizabeth is an excellent resource for everything in the area and a riot to get to know. She may even cover for ya... More

Amazing hostel in Canoa within steps of the beach with dorm style and private rooms. We rolled in early on the overnight bus and were greeted with open arms the entire week, even after a couple nights of shenanigans from our group. Elizabeth the owner is a stand up person who truly cares and gives back to the community. The... More

Incredible! For this price how can you be that close to the beach (I counted 7 steps) you can have a morning swim and easily leave your towel behind at the hostel. And with that of course comes the nurturing sound of the waves to help you have restful dreams at night. Elisabeth, the owner would go the extra mile... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Coco Loco. It is definitely still the best spot in town if you are looking for relaxing or surfing time with other travellers. The town can be quiet during week days, but the atmosphere is always good at Coco Loco. The location is perfect, right at the beach and close to the centre of... More

I was looking forward to meeting some people in Canoa and this hostal seemed to be quite lively so I decided to stay here. I got a room on the ground floor just next to the bathrooms. It had a bad smell of stale air and humidity as I walked in, but I thought I would just open the window... More

Exactly like the lonely planet guide warned: you will stay here longer than you intend. First night we had a nice 3 bed room with lockers and private bathroom, other 2 nights we switched to a 4 bed dorm with lockers at a very affordable price. Bed sheets were provided and towels were also available. Staff were friendly and accommodating.... More

Well, ive given this place a 4/5 even though it was dirty and kinda shabby. If you want clean then maybe find another place, but if you want that nice hanging at the beach feeling then this is the place. Nice staff and nice common areas.

A large group of eleven of my group, (18-20 year olds) read the lonely planet guide, and presumed that hostal coco loco was the place to be in Canoa. We turned up in the middle of a pirate party for the owners birthday, and although having booked for eleven people, there was not enough space for all of us, so... More
