“Great Surf Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

We had a double room with shared bathroom. The hostel was very clean and close to the beach. You can rent the surf equipment for 10$ a day inclusive 1h lesson. The host was very friendly and the curry for dinner was great. The surf spot is on a sand beach, really good for beginners with no rocks. :-). There is a restaurant with 99cent margaritas next to the hostel

I went here in July with my son, and came back this week with son AND daughter! The Hostel is located in a small, very friendly town. The owner Ian is an amazing host, and his 10 year old daughter Molly is delightful. It feels like staying with friends. The Hostel is spacious and clean. Their 'Learn to Surf' packages are an AMAZING deal. The beach is a two minute walk down the hill from the Hostel. You can get private rooms for two or three if you like. The beach is totally safe, terrific waves for beginner surfers, no rip tides what so-ever. I hear sometimes they get bigger swells when the South wind blows. Yes, the only problem is trying to tear yourself away from the beach life!

Room Tip: Top floor has a seven bed room and a fabulous deck looking out over the ocean.

We really had a wonderful time here. Molly and Ian are able to make you feel at home.
My boyfriend and me, we were travelling by bike and we found here a perfect place to relax and to take a rest. The rooms are really confortable and the beach is very nice.

This place was amazingly chilled and easy going, situated on a beautiful beach in Mexico. I booked a surfing trip with them and got way more then I expected. Ian and Molly were amazing hosts allowing you to enjoy your stay as if it was your home. Ian cooked great wholesome meals that hit the spot after a long day surfing. The local people were friendly and the lady who ran the local taco truck made the most amazingly fresh and delicious tacos. The surf was great for any level of surfing and there was not too many people on the beach so if you were learning it wasn't too embarrassing! Would have loved to stay here longer had my trip allowed.

This is a great, laid back hostel 1 minute from a beautiful beach. I took a cheap and fun surf lesson with a young local guy, Vicente, and ate delicious home-made vegetarian curry and chorizo pizza. The only problem is you'll adjust to the cruisy pace and the cheap living and won't be able to tear yourself away
