I had a wonderful time staying at Julio's place! I only meant to come for a few nights and stayed for a few weeks. As a surfer you can't beat the central location. You can walk to every good break in the area. What made this place special though was the owner. A local Punta Hermosa surfer he knows all the spots and will drive you around surfing in his vintage volvo! You really feel a part of his home and are really welcomed.
The accommodation for the price is very spacious. Rooms are large with private bathrooms and a big common area. The place is quiet and secure which was a big plus for me as I travel with a lot of luggage! I get tired of staying in loud surf hostels so for me Hospedaje Miramar was perfect. I'll be going visiting again for sure!
