Stayed at Bavaro Hostel for Four nights. Even though it was low season and sometimes too hot temperaturewise, I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. The Price was fair, the place was Nice and clean although a bit basic. The staff at Bavaro Hostel were very Nice and helpful. The location is pretty good, 5 min. from the Beach... More

Traveling with my friends would not have been the same without this great stay and wonderful staff. Their kindness and willingness to help makes me want to come back sooner rather than later. Thank you, Gill!!!

I was a worldwide traveler,until I came here for the first time 4 years ago. I loved everything about this place and location so much that I just come here every year for 3-4 weeks stay.

I stayed at the Bavaro Hostel in Punta Cana recently. I've stayed in hostels before and so far this is my favorite one. I can't wait to go back. It's super close to the beach and literally next door to great restaurants / music venues and grocery stores. The kitchen had everything I needed to prepare my meals. I felt... More

Most importantly, Gill the manager was super helpful and lovely; she was eager to help me with anything and went out her way to make sure I was happy with the service. I look forward to going back...

Friendly staff. Good, non-party hostel atmosphere with bars starting just a block away. Rooms are mostly good but our room had no screens in the window so the choice was heat or mosquitos. This was the only real issue we had. The hot water was great and the wifi in the common area was good though not available on the... More

Hi! Thanks for the review! We equip all the rooms with fans, usually that's more than enough, but some nights can be especially humid. (We have a couple of rooms with A/C available for an extra fee just in case). The wifi is stronger in some rooms than others (we're working on getting fuller coverage), so we provide all our...

Lovely Hostel, Stay in a shared dorm with 3 other people, They were nice and quite. There are mosquitoes at night so cover up with a bed sheet cover. No AC, only fan which is enough for Punta Cana. Share bathroom and kitchen. They locked up at night for our safety. Only a 3 minute walk to the beach and... More

I rented a bunk in the dorm while two of my friends booked a room in the shared apartment for the night. Great location, just a couple minutes from the beach in one direction, and another couple minutes to many restaurants/supermarket down the other way. Kitchen, refrigerators, Wi-Fi and fresh sheets provided. We stayed for 2 days and a night,... More

If you aren't the type for staying at expensive beach resorts, this is the perfect affordable alternative in the same great location (right next to the beach!). The people are very friendly here and the rooms are clean and light. They have private rooms for couples and families and the 6-person dorms for solo travellers. Depending on who is staying... More
