The staff were very friendly. Carlos was very helpful. The location was great as it is beach front. BUT be ready for the music. It can go on playing up to 2 AM on Friday and Saturdays. We were very tired form our Inca trail hike in Machu Picchu so we fell asleep despite the music. I think the bar... More

Doesn't match the description. Only cheap room is steaming and right next to a loud bar, with vagrants sleeping on hammocks during the day. Impossible in any of the rooms without air-conditioning. No access to the kitchen as promised, and the kitchen is large and tempting. No coffee and tea available. Staff constantly with their faces in (inside) their computers,... More

In the first place we booked the 80 dollar private room, with a fan, but after loosing one night of sleep there we asked for another room, so we ended up changing every night to another room, by paying extra. The 80 dollar room is on the back of the house, so there is no breeze from the sea getting... More

Hostel is the last house on the beach and the view is amazing! The staff was really nice too and explained everything well in English including tours and everything you can book through them. Water and an excellent breakfast is included. Make sure you get air conditioning tho (not all rooms have it). And it may be loud at night... More

The place is a good value, but you are sandwiched between 2 bars (one is the hotels, one is Bar de Beto next door) who both blare their music well into the night. Even though we were exhausted from the days activities, it was tough to sleep. We knew of a few people who left and went to another place... More

The guy who I think was the owner or manager was extremely helpful and friendly in helping us coordinate the details of our travels and the excursions we wanted to do. Our room was extremely nice & clean with AC. The included breakfast was also really yummy! The location on the edge of the beach is wonderful as well. The... More

Me and my wife have booked 3 nights well in advance based on the reviews and photos but actually have never stayed at the hotel. Therefore I can't comment on all the services they provide,just some of them. Let's start with pros - both Carlos and Andrea are very kind, helpful and nice people. She even booked us tickets to...

We had specifically booked room no. 6 as we are mature travellers and whilst we don't expect luxury we do like a bit of comfort so obviously pay a bit more for this. This room is ideal as has an ensuite-which does get a little wet in torrential rain but there is a floor drain so not a real Problem,... More

We had 6 nights here and stayed in the room with a huge balcony and en-suite shower and toilet. Overall probably the best place we have stayed in anywhere in the world. Okay a bit of perspective needed, I am not saying that it was the most luxurious accommodation but for my wife and I it is not about luxury.... More
