We stayed at the Finca Escondida in Palomino for 2 nights. We chose the option of the "small" tent for 40000 pesos. And the tent was definitely not small! It was very spacious and a good deal for privacy since private rooms in Palomino are very expensive.
The restaurant served good food at reasonable prices (not cheap but with regars to the location) and offers 2 for one cocktails at Happy Hour. The location couldnt be better as it is literally right on the beach.
One negative point is that the WiFi was not free and they seemed to charge a lot for the dorms and offer very little in comparison to other places nearby (such as the Tiki Hut or the Dreamer Hostel which looked like a holiday resort for backpackers)
I would recommend this place if youre looking for an affordable option to have some privacy but otherwise I would probably opt for one of the other hostels mentioned.
