Liked: All brand new, quite luxurious for a hostel. Nice patio, terrace with view to the beach. Good location, very close to the beach, good to go running in the evening (though a bit far from the supermarkets). Had the dorm (spacious, very comfy beds) on my own. Very good breakfast. Nice, that they pay for a taxi from the bus terminal.

Disliked: Have very mixed emotions about this hostel. Too much family for my personal taste. I like to spend time with MY family and friends (with little, offen noisy kids), but when I travel I like to meet other travellers or have quiet time in my own. There were only 3 other guests there, not good to meet people. Outside the dorm at night very cold because of the open patio. Kitchen, which is also used by the family, too small.All in all I would recommend it, if you really want to go to la paloma (punta del diablo is way nicer) and if you don't go off season or like the family touch, even tough it's too expensive for what they offer.

Liked: Owners are just great, helped us with everything (e.g. washing, etc.) and the owner Santiago and his friends even took us on a ride to check waves in the surrounding area. Property is direct next to the beach and its just a 10min walk to the town center. So everything is really good and we extended our stay for another night.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: A lovely house, really close to the beach. They really do pay your taxi from the bus terminal. Good breakfast (except Nescafe instant coffee). A really nice family run place.

Disliked: Shower head broken, bulbs in bedside lights blown and the computer they offered didn{t work at all. BUT I arrived at the end of a busy summer season so i am sure they will get it fixed up again during the long winter ahead.
