This quaint spot is directly across from a lovely black sand beach for easy ocean access. The bar serves their own craft beers and the food is fabulous! Highly recommend the fish tacos! The beds are not fabulous, neither are the pillows, but you hardly notice as you fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing.

My friend and I had a great stay here. The rooms were a good value and the laid back atmosphere was awesome. The food was by far some of the best I've ever had at any hostel/hotel. The beer brewed in house was excellent as well, and the bar was a great place to hang out in the evenings.

I stayed in a private room with a beautiful ocean view and the room I had was very clean and very comfortable. A lot better than I'm used to in Central America. This place is as I have said ideal! You get the comfort, the location and the service you hope for. It's a 5 minute walk into town which... More

Excellent place to stay and enjoy the beach, and walking into town for anything. JT was so hospitable. We were able to take part in his brewing process of his micro beer's. He is so knowledgeable and ready to explain the process. What a wonderful experience. We will always return. Just need more time.

First off, the location of this place is beautiful! Right on the beach. It is an amazing view. The food is good (a bit pricy and not included in the stay) but very tasty. Ok, now the rooms are overpriced for what you get, especially the double rooms that are really meant for travelers and are set up like a... More

Located right on a (practically private) beach, full of beautiful green plants and bright flowers (smell the Ylang Ylang!), creative room designs and paintings... Kayas makes for a really cozy, comfortable, and affordable place to stay. I loved waking up to do some quiet yoga on the beach, go for a swim, and then hop over to town. In the... More

We arrived at Kaya’s Place in July of this year. Upon arrival, I was in awe of the artistic details all around me. Everywhere I looked I could tell this place was handcrafted piece by piece with such love. Mosaics, carved woodwork, hand painted murals and tropical paths aplenty. Every corner was a new surprise, as is every room is... More

First impressions walking up to the hostel is that it's nice and open and airy, restaurant at the front. All good and well. Our room... Not what was described and not what was expected. We booked a room which was described as two double beds. What they fail to mention is that they're bunk beds. I mean come on. I... More
