The hostel was very clean and everything looked very new, the owners who share the living area with the guests were really nice and kind and I also met some other travellers. The hostel is located just a 10 minute walk from the beach and a supermarket is really close too. Overall I had a great time and I would recommend staying there to anyone who is travelling to the Dominican Republic!

The hostel was clean and neat, with a very friendly and sweet staff. I appreciated the wifi and loved the cute dog Deniz. However, like other reviewers said, you do feel quite micromanaged (eg: no feet on the couch) as this is a small apartment being shared with the hostel operators. It doesn’t feel as much like a hostel where travellers meet, and more like a room and board situation. The dorm room (with 4 beds) was very hot with just the two fans, and the privacy curtains did not work. Instead of providing privacy they would flap up into your face, maybe securing them to the bottom would help. I was really disappointed with the water pressure during my stay, it was quite possibly non-existent and doing the dishes and showering was painful. The hostel also didn’t provide drinking water (to my knowledge) which was a bit inconvenient. No free breakfast either which was a downfall. Any extras beyond the rate for the night were very expensive, a lot of it seemed unreasonable for a hostel to charge. Overall it was a decent stay. The area was very safe and near the beach, however no other travellers or activities as well as lacking in some amenities.

Hello, We are a small hostel and it is true, it is a great pity that we did not meet your expectations. We hope that you will find a more suitable place for yourself. To your words, I would like to add that we do not offer a free breakfast or water, we do not have this service, so we don’t cheat anyone. We have rules that we ask to sign, since we consider it necessary to designate rules of behavior and, for example, not to put your feet on a coffee table or a sofa — this is the rule that we ask you to follow. It is not so difficult. We do not ask anything that prevents you from feeling comfortable, just ruled for everyone and if putting feet on the table is the norm for you, then please think about other people, maybe they are not pleased. We provide a range of additional services for your convenience at an additional cost. You can not use them, the decision is always yours. But if you need additional services, such as Transfer, Excursions, Laundry, late or early check-out, luggage, etc. then we are at your service. You are welcome!

Ever since I booked my room (i got the private one) Andrei and Valentina were really kind and helpful. They contacted me via email and then whatsapp to help me as much as they could with the transfer from the airport to the hostel. They are such a lovely couple that opens not only their house but their hearts as well. Everything was clean. They have hot water (not that u need it), kitchen and well u can always ask them about the tours and what to do or where to go, they will be always looking forward to help u. I recomend this hostel because is like getting home away from home.

Everything is kept very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. I felt safe and welcome my entire stay (as a solo female guest). Also, the hostel is within walking distance to the beach and shops which is really convenient. During my stay, I felt at home very quickly because Valentina and Andrey are so warm and considerate. I highly recommend this hostel for anyone visiting Punta Cana!
