Hostal Shalom

We camped here for a night and it was great. They have a big garden in the back. For 50 pesos per person we had access to the kitchen, bathrooms, showers, and swimming pool! The location is the best part of this place, since its right next to the carrizalillo beach. Friendly staff too!

Kitchen was a bit dirty, but c´est la vie with hostel kitchens.

I have no words to explain that place, it's amazin, beautiful garden, nice staff, it's a good place to chill, everythings there are good, like the reception , swimmingpool, kitchen and the garden at the back yard, this ir the best place in puerto. really close to the most beautiful beach in puerto "CARRIZALILLO".

Room Tip: the best rooms are the cabanas, because the weather there is most confortable than the others rooms

From a day it ended up staying for a month in hostal shalom which is very near every beach in Puerto, but still if you don t feel like walking you can always stay by the pool, staff is really friendly and helpfull, I recommend this hostel to everyone. Shalom.

For my first Hostal I had ever stayed in, on my first solo adventure, Shalom felt great! A wide selection of rooms. A pool. A close walk to the best beach for swimming and the sunset. A short walk to the center of town. Taxi's stop by often. The staff helped fix a shower head that wasn't showering. And, you can bring in your own beer, or wine, unlike many of the hostals I came across on my travels.
Having a kitchen at a hostal is a crucial factor for those traveling on a shoestring. The one here, although, functional and clean(always do your dishes!!) was dark, had a small fridge, and was quite hot during the afternoons and early evenings. With a more comfortable kitchen, Hostal Shalom would have gotten a 5/5 rating.

Remember travelers, Hostals are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days years. Give thanks for what they do for you. That's a hell of a job

Room Tip: Personally, I really liked the small cabanas with thatched roof and walls. It got kind of hot by abo...

We stayed in a private room with bathroom, room was quite ok, plenty of ventilation with mosquito screens on the windows and doors. Water pressure is ok but the shower head was not great. Pool was lovely, lady a reception was really nice, breakfast was basic but nice. The location is ok, but it is a short cab ride from the main surf beach at Zicatella (25pesos). Overall a pretty good budget option, but if you can afford more, then maybe look at other options closer to the clubs and bars in Zicatella.

I was unfortunate to be in the rain season so there was lots of water everywher. Which makes it hard to rate the general cleaniness of the place. It was a bit chaotic. But it was worth it. I only wanted to stay 1-2 nights and ended up staying a week. You will party with the staff, meet very cool people and all in all for 100 pesos a night it's absolutely worth it. It's a cabañas place after all...
