Nice Hostel near the beach. Hosts really nice and helpful. Rooms are cute and cozy. Family oriented. They make breakfast and have free coffee. Can walk to the beach and many restaurants. Clean pool to relax after a day at the beach. Well priced.

Overall the hostel is okay. Pool area and open courtyard is cool, and provides you the ability to relax after a long day. They have hammocks around the courtyard and big kitchen area. Our room had a nice AC unit. The bed felt like we were sleeping on pallets, and the bathroom needs some serious updating. We stayed in the...

This place is perfect for everyone it is really quiet at night so you can get a good night of sleep. Rooms are big and comfortable. You can have a good time in the pool or common area.

Great staff, great people, clean, owner knows his stuff. Note that the swimming pool looks and is great specially when having a really hot weather. It is a great place to be at. Ensure that you enjoy as much as I did. Looking fw to being back. Manuel (the owner) is a great host.
