Location is right off the beach, far enough away from the fest so you can sleep if you want to! Staff were sound, could have done more by way of recommendations for food/surfing etc as other friends got in their hostels. Minimal communal space so it's hard to meet people and they lock the terrace at night so you can't... More

There is only sand in your way from the door of the hostel all the way to the beach, so you can go barefoot :) The hostel has a very friendly feeling, and the terrace in the top floor is relaxing, and well equiped with chairs and hamacas and resting chairs.

Amazing views from the communal third floor deck. The outside is like half treehouse half lighthouse. Super cute. Right by the beach, but away from the noise of town. Friendly staff. Great experience. I miss it there! Wanna go back now!!

I was planning on staying at Esperanto for 2 nights and ended up staying 5. It´s comfortable, well priced and near the beach. The owner Jorge is great and will help with anything. We all had great times staying there.

I couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at Esperanto Hostel! The staff were locals or travelers just like us, which made them super relatable and so much fun to go out with. The staff hosted dinners for the hostel which made it super easy to meet everyone. It's also the perfect distance away from all of the bars... More

My friend and I chose Esperanto because it was top ranked hostel from our Google search. We were a little hesitant at first as we wanted to explore other options but with few rooms available, we jumped on booking a room. When we arrived we were greeted by faces from all over the world. It was pretty cool and exactly... More

I decided to stay here after reading the great reviews and I'm so glad I did! The location is great, literally a stone's throw from the beach and a short walk to all the action but on a quiet little side street so you won't be kept awake by drunken revellers! The rooms are decent with big beds, lockers and... More
