Liked: Very nice private rooms, very clean. Relaxing atmosphere, helpful staff.

Disliked: It's close to the beach, but there's really nothing else around there. It's a 30 min walk to La Paloma.

24 February 2014 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff. Clean. Met some really nice people there.

Disliked: We booked a double room but instead we got a twin room. Also, the 'ocean view' is quite a stretch. When standing outside the room in front of the door to the room, it is true you could see the ocean over some trees (or to the left down a road aways) but not what you think of when it says 'ocean view'.

Liked: Very close to the beach. Coco. Owner lent us beach chairs and umbrella free of charge. Comfortable couches and hammocks on deck. Mosquito nets.

Disliked: Bikes are very old. The inner tube in the back tire of the bike I used actually came out while I was riding. I had to get off the bike and drag it back to the hostel. I was still charged the full amount.

Liked: Little cozy hostel right by the beach, with fresh squeezed orange juice and home-made bread (wholewheat and chocolate) for breakfast, clean, porch with lots of seating-accommodations and two, very nice and friendly owners, who made this a very rewarding stay!!! Go within the low-season, when there isn't too many people around, this way you'll have a big room all for yourself and the one travelling with you - if not it might be a bit crowded - but not to worry, for all the high-season traveller, extension is already in progress. BEST PLACE YET!!!! MUST GO!!!!

Disliked: Nothing!!

Liked: Perfect location for beach. Dorm room is very nice and comfy. Showers are good. Kitchen is small but functional. Fernando is a really friendly host and keeps the place clean. There is always someone working at the hostel. Decent internet connection. Very peaceful, perfect for a relaxing getaway. I booked for one night and ended up staying for 6!

Disliked: Nothing I particularly disliked. But a few things to be wary of: There isn't much in the way of restaurants, nightlife etc around, and there weren't many (or any!) other guests when I stayed. Breakfast isn't provided, but the reasonable price makes up for that.

Liked: The owners of this hostel had thought of everything that a guest could want, from an outdoor shower to use after a day at the beach to 24 hours internet, a nice kitchen and movies to watch. The breakfast was incredible and consisted of homebaked bread and cakes. Its just 2 mins from the beach and 1m from a local supermarket and so the location was perfect.

Liked: It's a very family and cute place run by superfriedly Fernando/ Franciso, who bakes his own bread for the guests. Breakfast also featured fresh orange juice and karotte cake. Would definitely stay there again.

Disliked: It a bit far of the center of Paloma and there were some people around staying at other places that were not really considerate of others who wanted to sleep.
