By far the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. Stay away! Fans are covered literally inches of dust, barking dogs all night and poop everywhere. Bathrooms so dirty and no water pressure. Not helpful staff, jerks staying there. If you wanna save money there are better places, it's Not hard to beat this place. I would never stay here... More

When you arrive at this place,something just tells you that not all is right ? Four barking dogs great you behind two cast iron gates to the lobby. The hostess Denis is a lovely woman and by her own admission,says it needs renovating. Her lease is up soon and the landlord is not prepared to invest. Rooms are dirty,shabby,beds creak... More

The first night we stayed we had a bunch of lads in the room next door wanting to party. The noise was unbearable so I... More

My husband and I booked just under a week here and ended up staying 3 weeks! We fell in love with the location and the beautifully kind and helpful owners Denise & Juan and the hostel dogs whom we would play with on the beach of an evening while watching the sun set over the ocean. Comfy beds in great... More

The highlights are the friendly, open and relaxed attitude of the people, and also it's position a couple of minutes walk from the quiet but surf-filled beach at La Punta, Zicalla. Rooms are plain but work, and there's a communal kitchen space that's useful. Unpretentiously good :)

As a solo female traveler I like to stay places that are helpful and friendly without feeling like I've been given training wheels. At Hostel 8 Venado I always felt like a family friend. The owners are wonderfully kind, warm, and helpful. I always felt safe with my stuff and myself and the location is perfect: outside of the main... More
