David Burns

01 July 2007 David would recommend this property

Liked: It's in a cool part of hermosa, right next to the beach with numerous clubs and restaurants right next door. However there were lots of thefts from this hostel. Security is awful, the back door is nearly always left wide open and numerous people had items stolen from them during their stay (including me). Everyone who works at the hostel is really cool, apart from the tall blonde german guy who everyone hates. He is the most miserable person I've met so far on my trip.
