we decided to go to the coco loco because it was suggested in our travel guide. unfortunately our stay was horrible: the room was okay but it was not possible to close the door to the balcony, that everybody could go in all the time. the bathrooms were dirty and clogged and the staff was not able to repair that....

Although the first impression is good due to the location close to the beach as well as the outstanding building, our stay was very disappointing. The most annoying issue were older, drunk men (obviously friends of the owners) that were bothering us at the bar and in the communal bathrooms. Not a nice thing when you have to go to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the dorm at the highest point of the hostel. Great wifi signal here although there is a rat/ mice problem in the straw roof with scratching and squeaking being heard all day and night. An aforementioned review quotes a rickety staircase with a loose step is still present and beers at the bar are... More

Once we had arrived at the Coco Loco we decided to extend our stay to 5 days. The owner was very nice and ensured we had the best value room for what was available. Although during our stay we realised that there was security risks with what I assume is the bag drop area (the bags stay in the unlocked... More

My girlfriend and I stayed about a week at the Coco Loco and it was everything we could have hoped for; economical, very friendly staff, great location, and a sassy American owner in all good meanings of the word. We would definitely recommend this to anyone! Big thanks to the delightful staff ladies, the awesome guard and of course to... More

Planned on spending a few days in Canoa but ended up staying 4 weeks. Coco Loco is ideally situated on the beach, with a laid back surfing vibe and has great staff and owner. Breakfast was really nice especially the bacon and eggs. They do some great BBQ nights as well. Canoa itself is friendly and there is great seafood... More

I traveled by myself and was given a dormitory room with a private bathroom. Costs 9$/night, not included breakfast. The location is great, but my main complaint is that the bathroom wasn't clean. I did ask them if they could clean it but nothing changed. Also, they didn't provide me with toilet paper, no soap, nor towel when I arrived.... More

I stayed here with a few friends and the initial impression was "This place seems awesome" but definitely needs some improvement. We had a private room on the main floor, the door technically did lock but the wooden blinds could easily be opened. Some people who had been there a few days before us had some of their belongings taken... More

Thank you for taking the time to write. We do provide lockers for every room and dorm bed to protect your valuables. The shower door is a five minute fix that if you would have let us know could have been taken care of immediately. The theft you refer to did not happen like it is implied. With a little... More

I loved this hostal! The staff was super friendly and we had a double bedroom on the first floor and it was not too noisy. Of course if you are planning on staying at a perfectly clean hostal it is not the right place, but normally backpackers will find it acceptably clean!

I stayed here for 3 nights in early June, the place is currently quiet during the week, though I gather from other backpackers who were here, it's rocking at the weekend. There were small solid wooden lockers in my dorm room so I was happy to leave my belongings there, and the room had a fan and was ensuite. Unusual... More
