If you loved party then here is the perfect place for you. Roof parties 3 times a week which means loud music. 3 mins walk to the main street and the beach, 10~15mins to Walmart. The wifi works on ground floor only. Housekeepers clean the r ooms everyday which is good but when you stay in the 10 beds room,... More

The SOS lounge and hostel bar is on the rooftop of the 3B Hostel. Cool and helpful staff. Drinking games as beerpong and others and also ladies night twice a week. And they have the best strawberry mojito margheritas ever!! Very cool place to spend the nights at in Playa!

The bar on the roof is the perfect place to meet new people or hangout with old friends, they even have a pool up there for the... More

My time here was short but it was absolutely the highlight of my travels. Refreshing environment, steps away from the entertainment of 5th avenue and beaches. The experience from the rooftop lounge alone is something to grab your attention. Surrounded by nature and wild life, with a pool and great music/sound system... Couldn't ask for more. The vibe from the... More

Title : Best hostel ever Text : I've been traveling central america for the last 3 months and Hostel 3B has by far been the best hostel yet. Air conditioned rooms, brand new beds and a really clean and new feel. For the price I couldn't ask for any more. Rooms aside the hospitality and rooftop bar are definitely the... More
