Liked: I had a great room with views of the sea. The staff were helpful and it's a great hostel for anyone travelling on their own as it has a very communal atmosphere. One of the best hostels I have stayed at.

Disliked: You have to go through the kitchen to go to the shower and toilet if you are staying in the main building. Everything else was perfect!

20 February 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Loved this place and ended up extending our stay - it's full of character and pretty much on the beach. The staff are GREAT and the breakfasts are very good. Good place to meet people (from all different countries), has lots of different areas to chill out or chat (good thing as the weather wasn't great when we were there). Close to the supermarket, ATM etc. Cheapest place to stay in Punta del Diablo and we would definitely go back.

Disliked: The dorms are a bit cramped and it's not the cleanest place in the world as the building is one of the oldest in town. Bathrooms are also downstairs / outside which is a pain if you're in the upstairs dorm as we were. But don't let that put you off!

Liked: Really kind and helpful staff. Well located, close to the beach, foodstore and restaurants, with some distance from the crowded "center" of Punta del Diablo. The restaurant just close to the hostel was excellent with wonderful service.

Disliked: The size of the appartement, given for 4 persons was really small. Don't expect to do anything more than sleeping in it. We unfortunately had quite bad weather and the air in the appartment was really bad. The impression would have been totally different with good weather. On top of it, some water leakage was observed at our arrival in the bathroom. The temporary fix did not last more than 8 hours.

Liked: The location is very good. near the beach and not too far from town

Disliked: I dont really know why lonely planet recommends this place. There is no atmoshere and most of the time you feel like you are in someone's house as the owners family and friends are using the facilities most of the time without interacting with you. Big dorm very messy and bathrooms old and not clean at all...

Liked: Beautiful homey atmosphere, feels like you're staying at a fisherman's cabin. Great views from the decks and lovely evenings in front of a log fire! Kitchen is very well equipped and the cookers are strong! Only downside is there's only one bathroom for everyone to share and breakfast is only ok (bread not quite fresh and not much cereal).

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: We stayed in the private suite and while the view was beautiful I am not sure it was worth the money. We booked this last minute so it was one of our only options but if I had to do it over I would book elsewhere. The view was fantastic but the door to the room didn't lock, the windows wouldn't open or close, the bed was uncomfortable, and the breakfast was gross.This hostel is definitely geared towards young backpackers.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: good location, nice layout with outdoor sundecks...im not sure though if the actual hostel is just plain inefficient or if im just being unfair as the area itself is very laid back. the staff don´t actually work here, they care more about themselves and their friends than the actual guests. our room was a cabin and it was so insecure, we had no key for the room and there were no locks on the windows.

Disliked: amy left no negative feedback.
