Liked: It was cheap

Disliked: The toilet was so dirty and one of the sink was stucked, so you didnt really want to wash your teeth in there. The kitchen was also quite dirty. Almost all the tour start early in morning so you prefer to rest early at nigth, but the yard was so noisy.

Liked: Hostel Rural is a really cool place, there was a great atmosphere there. I highly recomend this place. If you are travelling alone, this is the place to be to meet great people ! Everything is close to the hostel.. Its safe and clean and there is a kitchen you can use. Miguel, Javier, Jose, Juan are part of the staff and they're all very friendly. They'll help you book your tours for cheaper prices than agencies. Anyway, in two words: book it !

Liked: Wifi access in the rooms, comfortable beds, warm blankets

Disliked: Only two toilets and showers for the whole hostel, often had to ask for toilet paper. Only common area was outside which got quite cold. The kitchen wasn't well stocked. The hostel was quite expensive considering the facilities.

Liked: Chilled vibe. Staff were friendly and helpful - they help you book all sorts of tours and trips in the area. Good wifi. There were only 2 showers, but never had a problem and they were nice and hot. Kitchen was small, but had what you needed. Minimarts, restaurants and tour companies were all within short walking distance.

Liked: Great common area and good location - tho san pedro is very small anyway it isn't necessary for a good location.

Disliked: Attitude and friendliness of the staff is disappointing for this hostel. There is a young child who screams a lot. Lack of water during the night - from approx 8pm to 8am. Unable to use the bathroom at all - can't flush toilet etc.

Liked: Location. Internet works really well.

Disliked: There was an episode: there is only a shared room with private bathroom at the property. While I was staying in this room someone of the staff opened it to let other people use the private bathroom (excuse: the line to the shared bathroom was big). I don't think there a problem in it, we travellers need to help eachother. But what if me or one of the other three girls of the room wasn't in the room? Would the staff let other people get in and use it? Would the staff take care of our belongings?

Liked: Pretty much everything was fantastic - I'd definitely stay there again!

Disliked: You can book reasonably-priced tours with them, and the company they work with is great. But beware!! That company reserves the right to pawn you off onto someone else if they don't get enough people, and the other companies are not always so good. I went out with Layana one day, and the unfriendly, grumpy guide turned what should have been a fantastic tour into a just okay one.
