This is the best value I have ever gotten for a hostel. $10 for comfortable, clean facilities AND breakfast included. The family who owns it is kind and helpful. It's in a great location (walking distance to restaurants/bars/supermarket). Loved this quaint, charming hostel... would definitely recommend!

What we liked: + Ronny (the owner), his brother and their entire family are super nice and super helpful + our room was spacious, clean and daily taken care of + any kind of tours or attractions can be booked...

Very pleasant stay from the start! Ronnie's brother met us at the bus station to point us down the road for the short walk to the hostel. When we got there I found that I had made a mistake booking and they were very accommodating with that as well as helpful booking tours. I had my laundry washed and it... More

The room is simple wih enough space, but the mattress should be exchanged. The included breakfast is good (fruit, cereals, toast and scrambled eggs). However, the whole hostel does not feel very comfortable. The common area is not a place where you want to spend a lot of time. The owner organizes all the tours for you, but does not... More

Really friendly, family run hostel. Lovely breakfast included and good coffee! The hostel can arrange all the activities for you and provides this information before arrival. Very helpful. Nice clean rooms and bathrooms. Good wifi.

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed it there. The staff was really nice. Everything was sooo clean. In the kitchen you can find everything you need. The breakfast was good and fresh. Our room was big and we had hot water, which is not standard in Central America.

Staff here are amazing and really like to help out. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom, both of which were very clean an tidy with plenty of room. Rooms were cleaned everyday and beds were made up (very posh for a hostel). Breakfast was fantastic- coffee or tea, plate of fresh fruit each (watermelon, pineapple and banana),... More

We stayed in pura vida hostel first but we are so glad we changed to here. Lovely hostel to stay in. Clean room, clean shower, hot water! Family that owns the hostel could not be more helpful! Kitchen was great for cooking, little touch of oil and salt etc really makes a difference! The breakfast is one of the best... More

This place is a lot more than what it looks like. The rooms are clean, the showers are nice in the 4 person private room. You can hear the bustle of the street, but I still had a great sleep. The common area isnt very big, but there is a computer if you need it, tables to sit at and... More

My friend and I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights. It was a really fun time because we met other backpackers there to hangout with. It's right in the middle of town so it's easy to walk to the local supermarkets and gift shops. There are plenty of restaurants also in walking distance that have reasonable pricing for Santa...
