I stayed for three nights at this hostel along with three adult family members on the second week of july 2015. The best thing about the hostel might be its location. If you take Expreso Bávaro buses from Santo Domingo to get there, you can get off one block away from it. El Cortecito beach is only a five minute... More

My son and I needed a place in Punta Cana for a night before heading off to explore other areas in the DR. The hostel can be challenging to find and was not well known to the Punta Cana car rental folks that gave us a lift out there. The set up of our private room with a shared bathroom... More

The hostel has three or so rooms sharing one washroom and kitchenette. The rooms are small, hot and ugly. This is an expensive hostel especially for what you get. For about 5usd more than what they charge you can stay in a way better place nearby.(there is no lack of rooms for rent in this area...and if you really need... More

Dear guest, We thank you for staying with us. We’re sorry to have not met your expectations. We do have small rooms, which we advertise as “small private rooms”; we do also have larger rooms available, which we sell as “big private rooms”- the cost is not very much greater and you’d likely have felt more comfortable upgrading for the...

Me and my boyfriend stayed for five nights in a private room and we loved it. Punta cana is full of expensive resorts so we wanted something a little more budget friendly since we have travelled for a long time. The location is great, just 100 meters from the beach and the restaurants right around the corner serves great food.... More

I visited end of march just before easter, I'm kind of a wary traveler so I just booked my flight, little did I know it was still high season in Los Corales. I spent a couple days in a condo and the following week in the hostel. I wish I would have booked in advance, but Jill and Martina were... More

This is a great place to stay. Its 5 mins away from the beach and the staff are very friendly and can give great tips on where to go. Punta Cana itself isnt the best place to stay in for long. So its a great hostel to meet people who are going to different areas of the country. Beds are... More

The location is great ! Also you have the chance to do a bunch of activities. The hostel itself is a little noisy at night due to a close bar. Also there are a lot of mosquitos and the mosquito nets are broken. Unfortunately there is no breakfast which would be really amazing. I think the hostel is a little... More

I stayed in a dorm here nearly three weeks, suffice to say the price was amenable. There simply could not be a better location; it is ideally situated, a one minute walk from the beach and less to many restaurants. Wifi here is reliable, which is important for my day to day, and ultimately determines if I do end up... More

If you intend to go to Punta Cana on a Budget I definitely would recommend that hostel as it is in walking distance to the beach, bars etc. The sleeping quality is not that poor as mentioned below and there is a nice kitchen to use. You are going to meet a lot of young people to hang around and... More

We're happy you enjoyed your stay :). There are a lot of people looking to sell anything to tourists, but there are also great souvenir shops (haggling is key!), excursions and local beach/bars/restaurants where you can meet local people who are just plain friendly! More

We spend three nights in a room for that looked like it was rarely cleaned, not very nice! The hostel itself is rather worn out but the location is good, close to the beach and close to a small supermarket. It is rather expensive for what you get so if you are a couple or don't mind to share a... More
