Liked: The room is stunning with a classic rustic design. It's right on the beach, the staff are great and always in for a sincere chat, no obligated speeches like 'where are you from, how are you travelling' etc. Then there's the surrounding, the magical little town and the long stretched beaches. I was really happy here, it was a real break.

Disliked: That I had to leave

Liked: The staff was super friendly and always willing to help. The location is second to none, with great views of the beach and the main surf spot. Literally stepping from the property onto the beach. The facilities and rooms were nice and very comfortable. The hostel offers great activities, surfing, and are affiliated with a yoga studio and a horseback riding adventure (this is a must, so much fun, a great way to explore the national forest and some other beaches, worth every peso).

Disliked: Not much to dislike. Some of the finer details like chairs, window shade fixtures and floor boards could use some repair.

Liked: Amazing beachview, nice bar, good food and cocktails, friendly stuff. The concert evening was great!The beds were made every day!

Disliked: Could be cleaner. Forgotten socks, half-empty glasses and empty bottles in the rooms. The girls toilets are small and one of the dorms I stayed was too small for 6 persons. Food portions could be a bit bigger. But all in one a good deal..

Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: There was a german shepherd dog belonging to the staff which was unchained and unmuzzled. It guarded the hostel at night and when we tried to get in, it barked and ran at us. When we tried to agree with staff that they would make sure that did not happen again we were yelled, sworn at and verbally abused by a member of staff.The staff suggested we cooked in the kitchen, or that they could cook something for us in the kitchen. Later that evening, we saw two rats in the kitchen.Our sheets and towels had red, yellow and brown stains on them.There was no heating in the hostel, only an unguarded open fire, about two feet away from the bed which had a flammable mattress. The building was largely constructed of wood and bamboo. There were no fire extinguishers, fire escapes, smoke alarms, fire alarms or carbon monoxide testers. When we asked for an electric heater (it was about minus three that night) we were told none were available.The hostel was difficult to find. We had to go into a bar to ask a barman directions, which were not easy to follow as the streets were poorly lit.There was a layer of dust and dirt on the bar/reception area.Our bathroom did not appear to have been cleaned since the previous guests.The staff encouraged wild stray dogs to enter and nest around the hostel entrance.
