The hostel was in a great location, very close to the main beach, shops, cafe and local market. I think this is the most central point in town. The people that worked there were really friendly and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I learned to surf with Randal and had one of my best travel experiences. I couldn't believe how easy he made it for me and I got a video of myself surfing. There is a very good restaurant attached to the hostel. I enjoyed the food there and it had a nice atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this place.
I liked everything about my stay here.
The staff was really helpful and friendly, gave us tips for trips without any personal gain. Flexibility with payments, and we could use the room till 9P.M. the day we checked out because they had no other reservations. Good options for surf lessons. It was the cheapest hostel we could find but it exceeded all expectations.
The bathroom was not very luxurious, each room had a separate one but there were problems with hot water and water power, the toilet seat fell of all the time and the toilet clogged easily, and the sink leaked. Staff was helpful in trying to fix everything, or we could change rooms. There was no kitchen available, but the restaurant was cheap and good.
Great location next to the beach. Restaurant has really good food at reasonable prices.
Advertised as having a free breakfast - there is none. Whole hostel is pretty much the restaurant with a small social area upstairs, so not easy to meet other travellers.
Good vibe, great surf lesson, amazing location and really nice owner. He loves his job and you can notice it. The hostel has a nice chill area, the dorm room was really basic but the private room was good! Nothing special, but good value for the price. The restaurant is nice, also definitely try Crepes del Sol next to the hostel!
The owner was sometimes hard to find, but the personell in the restaurant could help us out as well
The restaurant is cheap and good value for money with good quality.
A lot of the facilities included in the descriptions were not true (no 24h reception, no yoga classes, no beach front, no kitchen etc..). Basically is an hostel with only rooms and almost no public space or reception.
