Casa del Shiva is a beautiful hostel situated away from the chaos of central Playa. The centre is a 5 minute trip by colectivo and costs 5 pesos, making it really easy to scoot in and out of town if you want to. The hostel is spotlessly clean, super comfortable and has a great laid back atmosphere. The rooms are light, airy and colourful and the communal areas include a pool, chillout palapa and fantastic outdoor BBQ. The staff were so friendly, welcoming and helpful and our home cooked breakfasts and dinners were amazing. Huge thanks for a great stay, a proper home from home! I would highly recommend and will definitely stay again if I am ever back this way.
