I can't say enough good things about this place. It's clean, fun and the price is right. The rooms are large with good air con and they don't crowd them with tons of beds like a lot of hostels do. Each room as 3 beds. I've stayed in smaller rooms with 8 beds. The bathroom has multiple showers and toilets so you don't have to wait and it's clean with good hot water.
My friend and I took the surf lesson with Wences who did a great job and we were catching waves pretty much immediately. They have a fun bar at the hostel with some of the best prices in town and great music. We only stayed here one night and then moved to a hotel on the beach but we came back every night to the bar. It's mostly a young backpackers crowd so if that's you and you like fun this is where you want to go.
The owners are fantastic, our hotel on the beach was robbed and the thiefs stole everything I had. The staff at the hotel weren't very helpful so I came back to Oveja Negra and they let me use their phone and internet. The next day Santiago gave me a couple of his shirts to help me out. How many people would go that far to help?? Stay here!
