Andrew Grossman thinks…

"Staff! Clean dorms and common areas. Pool. The breeze on the rooftop bar was a savior. Big kitchen. Location was OK."

Liked: Nice hostel! Lovely terrace! Good rooms with comfy beds.

Disliked: NO LOCKERS! this is quite annoying. You can leave stuff at the front desk. Not very busy when I was there... There are some cheaper options around. Booking directly through them is cheaper than through this website

09 April 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This place has potential to be really good-Swimming pool, big bar with friendly barman, close to centre of town and beach. Good common areas. Love the in house dog and her newborn puppies.

Disliked: Hostel was pretty quiet (but it was off season) so didn't get to meet many people. Breakfast (bread,, tea, coffee) not great. 6 bed dorm was a bit cramped and stuffy. No lockers just press at reception which staff provided access to.

26 March 2011

Liked: Clean, helpful staff , despite booking mess, quite nice rooms.

Disliked: They did not have any record of our booking. They also have very little understanding of Hostel Bookers, they thought my deposit was part of a comission to Hostel Bookers, not part of the overall fee. Also the worst breakfast in 5 months in South America, just some crap bread and no beverages. We booked a double room with a sea view but had to stay in a dorm as they were not aware of our booking.

Liked: Good kitchen but a little caotic, nice bar, great views from all floors with amazing sunsets and views out to the sea, ok lounge. Really helpful and nice staff

Disliked: Terrible excuse for breakfast, not worth calling breakfast really. Some plastic bread, runny butter and some jam left out in a rather caotic kitchen. Back yard little more than a patch of earth.
