Really nice hostel with a sociable vibe and friendly staff. The 6 person dorm upstairs was nice (definitely looked nicer than the dorms downstairs) and with a decent shower. Ipads and lockers for free use. Shuttles every day to local beaches, Playa Hermosa was picture-perfect and almost deserted. Breakfast is served until 10 and check out is at 11 which... More

Stayed here with a group of 35 people. They are extremely accommodating. FREE BREAKFAST EVERYMORNING! Central location to all the bars, restaurants, and beach. Only downside is if you want air con in your room you have to pay an extra $10 per night.

Be advised you cannot reserve here and you must pay each morning to stay the night. We stayed 3 nights in a twin private room with own bathroom. Although the surf shop was right outside our room it was not noisy at all. If you are looking for a party hostel this is not the place for you. The hostel... More

Me and my friends rent surfboards and took the shuttle to Playa Hermosa. The shuttle service is very nice but the surfboard rental kind of suck. My girlfriend and I haven't surf very much (like 15 minutes) because she got injured above the eye by her surfboard. We went to the hospital and came back (it cost us 50$US of... More

Really cool hostel with great lounge areas, complimentary breakfast, kitchen, clay water filters, wifi, hammocks, outdoor area to hang clothes, cheap shuttles to the beach, surf rentals, a rooftop bar....basically they have everything you could want. Staff are friendly, and we met a ton of great people in our dorm.

Had a great week here. Staff were always super helpful about arranging surf lessons and transport to the beaches. Its located at the end of one of the main drags so its quiet at night but close to everything going on. Its also got the best included breakfast I've ever had at a hostel. Huge bonus.

A good quality backpacker place which offers pretty much everything you want clean rooms, good WiFi, lots of common areas to hang out including some hammocks, a really good free breakfast, a TV with cable so for example I watched champions league games, friendly staff and tours.

Loved Casa Oro!! It was the perfect balance of being a social hostel without having a party jammed down your throat if you didn't want it. Wifi was great, free breakfast was delicious, and staff were really friendly and helpful. Daily shuttles to various beaches, close to a tonne of restaurants and shops.
