Friendly staff, English speakers. good sized rooms, relatively clean, good bunks, good lockers under each bunk, en suite showers (but could do with a scrub). Bring ear plugs as it gets noisy at night. I left after 1 night because the mattresses and pillows smelt and looked mouldy. I would have been happy with it were it not for this.

Don’t dare to stay there! Even though the accommodation is good and clean and has a magnificent view to the beach, you can’t use the kitchen (which is mostly used by the stuff), the Wi-Fi is terrible and, worst of all, people from the staff came into our room in the middle of the night asking for a free bed...

I was interested to stay at a Che Lagarto Hostel at some point on my trip through South America as I'd seen and heard a lot about them before I'd arrived. As the title states I was massively disappointed. I wish I'd read the reviews on here because most of them hit the nail on the head. The staff on... More

Never stay here! No running water, no wifi! Check in took an hour. Went out for dinner straight after, came back and there were people in our beds. Took 2 hrs for reception to relocate us. Would never recommend! Many other guests had similar problems with checking in and being over booked

This hostel is in a fantastic location by the beach. The hostel itself offers a fairly good breakfast and good modern rooms. However, the staff speak limited English and the service is terrible. Myself and atleast 5 others waited up to 3 hours to check in due to complications on their end. They didn't communicate with us. I was then... More

The worst hostel I have ever stayed at. I am still so shocked at how rude, in helpful and lazy the staff are. From the lack of help, to rude comments, to the receptionist who would sit there kissing her boyfriend all day instead of helping us. No Internet... Ever! Which is ok it's an island and I understand things... More

The place is amazing, just in front of the beach, a cool deck, near to the center, to others beach and so one. But the attention of the employees is really poor (just one exception: the guy on the Bar). I have been seek with 40 degrees of temperature, I asked for some basic medicine and they said "we do...

The hostel was clean hostel and in a good location but saying there is a communal kitchen is not an accurate description - it is shut most days between 6-10pm, the time when you would usually want to use it. Instead we were offered the meal that the staff were cooking but it was overpriced for what it was and... More
