Poc-na Hostel With a bit TLC this place could be very nice. Unfortunately, my experience here wasn't that great. I found the mattresses very dirty and the rooms pretty cramped.  The mixed dorm I slept in had a see-through shower curtain and no hook or any space to put your belongings while having a shower. For the luggage there is... More

Really good location, close to the beaches and restaurants/markets. Very open and sociable common area so I would recommend it to a solo traveller wanting to meet a wide mix of people. Also great free morning yoga classes on the beach! Downsides..the staff weren't overly friendly and the dorms were basic.

Nice place, right on the beach. We got a double room for 350 pesos. We really liked the laid back atmosphere at this hostel and the large dining/bar/hangout area. They offer many double rooms on top of dorms. There was live music in the evening and we appreciated that the party moved to the beach after 11 o'clock to keep... More

Three of us stayed in two separate 8 bed dorms which were perfect. The bunks are inbuilt into the rooms so it feels like you have a bit more space than in a normal hostel. Only downside was there were no sockets in the dorms, you've got to charge all your stuff out in the main common area. We were... More

As everyone else here says, the location is a huge selling point--you are literally right on the beach. The hostel has a large private bar area in the sand, complete with hammocks. The beach itself is pretty solid--not the best on the island, but super convenient, plus you're a short walk to a truly amazing beach (Playa Norte). I thought... More

The location is spectacular. The hostel is located right by the beach and you could relax on one of the hammocks. Although you can't swim at that side of the beach, you could easily just walk for 5 min and reach Playa Norte, where you can swim, get tanned, and get drinks from the bars. The people I met tended...
