Clean, pleasant, well priced. Breakfast with coffee and toast provided. You'll meet the adorable children of employees which is charming. Fabulously situated to the beach and both ado stations. If you come in the off season chance is you'll have a room to yourself.

It was a really nice and cosy experience staying at this hostel. It was clean and really cheap accommodation. The hostel staff were really nice and helpful. It is close to the beach and the bus station.

This hostel is a gem in this crowded, mad and noisy town. The dorms are big and well ventilated, you are provided with towels, personal locker and individual plug and lamp for each bed ( very handy when you want to be on your computer without disturbing other people), it has enough open spaces to hang out...a large patio, a...

Good value, probably one of the cheaper hostels in playa and compared to some hostels I stayed in kitchen was great. They need to fix hot water problem but I guess that doesn't bother some people. Not the greatest atmosphere if you are looking for a young lively crowd but it's a cheap stay

After seeing how cramped the dorms were we opted for a private room, which wasn't much better. It was a small room upstairs with no windows and 2 sets of bunk beds, so it was cramped with no where to put your bags. There was a fan inside but no ventilation. There was only 2 of us so if there... More

I don't know if you can find a really good hostel in Playa at all. This one might be just at the average local standards. But I have to say I have never stayed in such a cramped dorm. The room was very very small, there was no place to put your stuff. Also the ventilation was really poor which... More

I really didn't enjoy staying here. Why? A couple of reasons: - The dorm was cramped and there was no room to put your luggage. - Part of the guests were really loud and drunk. - There was no hot water in the shower. The girls' shower (upstairs) is very small and again no place to put your stuff. -... More
