You wouldn't think with the beach only being a stones throw away that you would enjoy the pool so much but it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Santa Teresa and Cuesta Arriba! Not a party hostel and it is very quite at night but a beautiful grounds to sit and enjoy the days and nights.... More

The hostel was fine: a very nice spot, good room, people were cool, we loved their two dogs... but, a quick warning about a couple of scams they run: NEVER pay for your room in colonès as it costs more than what they quote in dollars. It cost us an extra $7 per night to pay in the local currency... More

Thank you Trip Advisor for giving us the opportunity to refute such a bunch of lies from this reviewer. We have been in business for more than 10 years and have never been called such a thing. It is embarrassing to know that one of our guests thinks that we run scams! Needless to say, how offended we felt when... More

Really nice place and also good value for money. We stayed in a dorm room which was clean and spacious and only a few hundred metres from the beach. the kitchen and pool area were very well maintained. Although the bathoom was dingy and had to be shared by 3 dorms. The only problem we found was that the majority... More

Hola Barnaby, Thank you for your review. We are very happy to know that you liked our facilities so much! But, we think you missed seeing our second shared bathroom though. We never mislead you in any way when you made your booking through HW. It is stated clearly on their webpage that we have an 8-bed dorm with shared... More

If you want to chill & surf, this is the perfect place. Just 200m from the beach's best surf spot and with a swimming pool to relax, its a really good price compared for what others hotels offer. The owners are mindful and eager to help for anything. Just don't expect this to be a party place, as 11pm is... More
