This place is more like a 'home' than a hostal. John (the owner who speaks perfect English) was super welcoming and went out of his way to show us around and make us comfortable. He even walked us 'downtown' to show us where to eat, where the grocery store was and filled us in on the local history/lore. It was a wonderful introduction to Punta Hermosa. The house has everything one needs and the beds were SUPER comfortable. The bathrooms could have been a bit more clean and the house had a bit of a moldy smell to it but we were not phased. He advertises that there is a swimming pool on the property. There is, but it is cracked and won't hold water anymore, so don't anticipate a pool party. We had a hard time finding the place (it is located in a private community) so make sure you know what the place looks like or you get really good directions prior (there isn't a sign out front). Overall, the place was wonderful. Super chill and laid back. So glad we stayed there!
