The hostel is friendly and out of the main noisy area of the small town of Canoa. We had a lovely little cabin at the back of the property, nice gardens, a chosa for yoga or to relax in hammocks and only the sound of the birds and the sea. We took some yoga and surfing lessons whilst we were there and had a great relaxing time. The beach is beautiful and normally empty, except on Sunday and holidays when the beach bars are a bit noisy. Lots of local restaurants selling all types of fish and ceviche incredibly cheaply. You'll need insect repellant as there are a lot of mosquitos. We had meant to stay three or four days, and enjoyed it so much we stayed ten! Thoroughly recommended.
