Me and two friends stayed at playa and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were above and beyond helpful, breakfast was decent with some toast and fruit, the room was cool enough to sleep in. The hostel itself had such a great vibe. Would recommend this to anyone!!!

If you are searching for an easygoing cheap place to stay, Hostel Playa would do the job. Great staff, clean place, chilled atmosphere, cool setup. The place is well located. Suitable for backpackers.

Staff really friendly, fast wifi, good atmosphere at night and loads of places to sit and chill. A whole separate section is needed for the FREE BREAKFAST. Nutella and peanut butter. Never had better. Plus... More

Not necessarily my taste, but still a good hostel. The service was good. The decor was interesting. The people were vibrant. It was hard not to have a great time. Bring a beer or five and kick back. Also, they have some kind of association with Blue Parrot and everyone who was staying at the hostel was offered free entrance... More

This place looks terrible as you walk in, so much that we thought we were at the wrong hostel. At check-in they kept our passports without asking/telling us what they were doing. Music blasts loudly till 12.45am every single night making it impossible to sleep, particularly bad when you need to get up early. If you're in the mixed dorm... More

I absolutely loved the social atmosphere of this hostel, it seems to attract so many fun and interesting people! I did have some problems with the staff though, when me and my girlfriend stayed, there were 2 middle aged men working and using the hostel as their playground and have no boundaries when it comes to invading space! Always trying... More
