elizabeth baynton

25 September 2009 elizabeth would recommend this property

Liked: Palatial dorm room that was really clean with comfy beds. The hostel was so chilled out (probably due to the surfing culture!!) and had great facilities incuding good kitchen, internet, cable TV , surf lessons and HOT showers! I went out of season so it was quiet, but I imagine in season its a brilliant place to meet people and hang out.Would definitely recommend it as a place to stay and would go back if I was ever in Arica again.

03 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: A friendly hostel with a large social/dining area located away from dorms and private rooms. The shared bathrooms were a little dated, but clean. Our private double room was large and comfortable, with a TV. As the name suggests, the hostel has a surfing culture, and it was great to chat to the eclectic bunch of surfers from around the globe. It´s a safe 5 minute walk to the main street where there are plenty of dining options.

Customer review

01 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was a very familiar atmosphere where you can feel comfortable after the first minute. Only having about 8 rooms it is perfect to know everybody and having a good time together. For surfers it is a must since the owner of the hostel himself is one of the best locals and offers transfers to and from the surf spots.
