We camped here for a night and it was great. They have a big garden in the back. For 50 pesos per person we had access to the kitchen, bathrooms, showers, and swimming pool! The location is the best part of this place, since its right next to the carrizalillo beach. Friendly staff too! Kitchen was a bit dirty, but... More

From a day it ended up staying for a month in hostal shalom which is very near every beach in Puerto, but still if you don t feel like walking you can always stay by the pool, staff is really friendly and helpfull, I recommend this hostel to everyone. Shalom.

For my first Hostal I had ever stayed in, on my first solo adventure, Shalom felt great! A wide selection of rooms. A pool. A close walk to the best beach for swimming and the sunset. A short walk to the center of town. Taxi's stop by often. The staff helped fix a shower head that wasn't showering. And, you... More

I was unfortunate to be in the rain season so there was lots of water everywher. Which makes it hard to rate the general cleaniness of the place. It was a bit chaotic. But it was worth it. I only wanted to stay 1-2 nights and ended up staying a week. You will party with the staff, meet very cool... More

This is by far one of the worse experiences I ever had. First of all, the place is very dirty and poorly maintained, of course there is no hot water and the zink in our bathroom didn't have a tube underneath - all the water went down on the floor. How is that possible, one of those tubes costs like... More

Hostel Shalom was a really nice place to stay. The atmosphere was really relaxed - the staff and other residents were hugely friendly, very welcoming and willing to help, and there was a brilliant sense of community that quickly drew me in. I stayed in one of the cabanas with a friend, and it was clean and pretty cheap -... More

We only planned to stay for 3 nights, but ended up staying 8! As with all hostels is about the people, and we met a lovely bunch of them. The space itself is great, the lobby, communal area / bar is a great place to hang out and get to know people and Andy who works at the hostel really... More
