I stayed here for a week and had an absolute ball. Great atmosphere with really helpful staff. The SOS lounge on the rooftop is a great spot to have a drink and kick start your night out. Highly recommend this hostel to any travellers who like to party.

I stayed at this hostel in January 2016 while the Bpm festival was on. The place was buzzing with good vibes and everyone was friendly and wanted to meet new people. The staff did there upmost best to accommodate everyone and the place was very clean. I would 100% go back to this hostel. You felt part of the family... More

Had a blast here with my girlfriend. We came expecting a party but nothing like this. There must have been 400 people in their rooftop on Sunday for a free party with both travellers from all the other hostels, as well as locals! Electronic music every night, great prices, rooftop pool and palapa. 5 star

Such a cool place, they have the greatest rooftop in Playa, I'm talking about S.O.S. Great music, great party, nice lounges. Excellent location, so close to the beach, restaurants, and night clubs. Also so close to the 5th Av. I'm definitely going back there, it is always clean, and the rooms are so comfy, the vibe is so cool that... More

This is the best hostel I’ve ever been to. My only suggestions would be to avoid it if you have a problem with electronic music, they literally will not play reggaeton, cumbia, rock, after 9pm. Personally I love it and came for BPM, so this couldn’t have been a better accident. They had BPM DJ’s playing for free, 3 of... More
