Great location for beach, it is literally across the street. WiFi - didn't work at all during our stay. In general the hostel could be cleaner. Dorms are fine, comfortable beds. Occupied dorms/rooms are not cleaned daily. Walk of about ten minutes into the town. Very expensive for the standard provided.

Lovely fresh breakfast, nice dogs, nice family. Great location and very clean. The beach is opposite and it's the nicest one we went to in la paloma, also gets the sunset! The room was nice and clean. The layout is nice too. It's not the most sociable layouts but it's real nice. The town is an easy 10 min walk... More

This is a small, family-run hostel. We were there in the off season, when it was very quiet, but it didn't feel deserted. It has friendly, inviting atmosphere. Our host, Laticia, was very friendly and helpful, and she presented us with a wonderful breakfast, nicely displayed. There is a nice common room with television and games. The place is newly... More

in front of a beautiful beach, the balconada is a luxury and quite expansive small hostel, spotless and confy. Our double ensuite room was bright and big, breakfast is healthy, simple, with cakes and bread, yogurt, juice and fresh fruit. Friendly staff. The location is perfect, by the sea and 10 minutes walk to the center of La Paloma and... More

It has to many rooms for such small facilities. The owners are a family with two little kids (its quiet noisy the... More

I had a great time staying here for numerous reasons. The staff are friendly and helpful for one and it's pretty much right on the beach. You just have to cross a quiet road and go over the sand dune and you're there. There's a good, although slightly expensive restaurant right on the other side of the road. The people... More

I arrived unexpected at the hostel in the middle of winter, hardly business months. No one was around, but I was discovered quickly enough by Fernando. Was checked in and made to feel right at home - in fact the entire place was mine. I stayed for 4 nights partly due to an ankle injury that prevented me from cycling... More

Next to paying your cab from the bus station, the staff is always helpful, the beach is close and living room & kitchen are cleaned twice a day. Plus: fresh fruits for breakfast. Really enjoyed staying there!
