We stayed here in the two twin bed room. Staff were very accommodating via email given our short notice. We arrived in the apartment to find a horrible smell coming from the kitchen. Luckily we were eating out and didn't use the living room or kitchen for much. The room was sweltering hot and the first night I barely got... More

Stayed here with my husband for several days this place cannot be beat! We checked out several other nearby locations and nothing compared in this price range! The conveniance of location walking distance to everything, clean and safe room, and amazing hammock on the porch was unbeatable. Staff was polite and helpful. Bed was a bit 'lop-sided' sinking a bit... More

Room was very clean and cozy, hot shower and amazing breakfast with wide range of options. Manuel, the owner, is a great guy eager to help his guests with anything. He arranged the trip to... More

I highly recommend staying at La Terraza! very clean, great location, helpful and friendly staff and a nice kitchen to use. A friend of mine had recommended staying here from her previous stay, and I was so glad that I did. There is free water refills which is helpful and the hostel is just up the road from the food...

I love La Terraza! Not only does it have the best view - especially from the third floor balcony, but the management is great. They are always going above and beyond the call of duty to answer questions, help with booking excursions make sure your stay is comfortable. Great hammock on the balcony. Right in town with close access to... More

We really recommend this place! A very nice balcony with a hammock and great view. During our time there the room next to us had some problems with the toilet (leak). Although this affected us we got compensated for this in a very good way!

This is the best place ever. It feels like home. Everyone is friendly, the rooms are incredibly secure. There is a rooftop terrace to watch sunsets over the bay. Its affordable, private bathrooms, and an upscale shared living room/kitchen that three rooms share. Its incredible. Its beautiful, upscale, cool, private but social. We met some of the best people there.... More

We stayed 7 nights in a private room w bath, it was great. The shared kithen & living room was with only 2 other rooms so it wasn't ever an issue. The WiFi was great, worked better on the 2nd floor than 3rd though, we stayed 2 nights on 2nd floor and 5 on the 3rd. They have a nice... More

As our reservation for a double bed room ensuite with Hostelworld did not work out, we got the apartment for the same price which was very huge and comfortable. Everything is in good shape, lovely interior. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living area invites to cook together and have a nice evening. However, ask in advance if the... More
