We stayed here only one night but it was great. The front desk people spoke a bit of English and the room was very clean. There are computers and you can print if needed. It's in what I considered a very questionable area, but we didn't feel unsafe.

Very clean with great facilities. Reasonably priced, amazing hot showers and good breakfast. Would recommend to travellers, as it was also reasonably well located. Only fault was that we didn't find the staff overly friendly. Overall it was a good experience.

This place is really well set up with clean, large rooms, and chargers and lights at each bed. The breakfast was the best I've experienced in a hostel - you help yourself to fresh squeezed orange juice, fruit, cheese, bread, and coffee/tea. They make eggs on request. One downside: the wifi is pretty slow, and downright stinks when a lot... More

I can´t say enough about this place. Clean, friendly, well organised in great location! A place I would recomend to anyone who is looking for a place to relax, watch movies, cook and still be very close to everything. No parking for cars but was allowed to park my motorcycle inside the hostal since it was the only one there.

Been back twice. Staff and owners could not be friendlier and a great vibe to the place made for a chilled and enjoyable stay. Rooms are basic, but you get what you pay for. The pool is great and you are made to feel welcome by accommodating and flexible staff. Stayed here with y 2 kids and we enjoyed it.... More

PROS: The rooms were very clean. The bedding was clean. Pretty comfortable beds. There were oscillating fans in every room. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay because of our plans. One room had a bureau and two twin beds. The other room had bunk beds and a side table for the bed. All in all, rooms were... More

We booked a private container room for 3 nights - super clean and comfortable with AC. Daytime staff at the front desk are very knowledgable and helpful, and booked all our tours and taxis. Good breakfast and decent pool area. We felt very safe in this area and would highly recommend this hostel for a trip to Santa Cruz.

I got there late in the afternoon and was just staying for the night, so that I felt like I payed for features I did not need. It is a cute hostel, very very clean and with a nice pool and recreational area. Even though it is very clean, I thought that there could be more than one shared bathroom... More

Close to the bus station and to El Parque Urbano this hostel is a nice option to rest a few days in Santa Cruz. The bar and the swimming pool are good places for a nice rest. The place is clean and I did not find it noisy.

If you want a couple of days chilling in the sun by the pool this is the perfect hostel for you! Come visit our backpacker luxury.The hostel started in 2006 and has established a well-balanced between fun and relaxation. We go according to the guests staying, if you want to have fun and party, we organized BBQ's by the pool “all you can drink and eat” for everyone to meet and have a good time.
