I spent in the hostel 2weeks and loved the atmosphere there. Not too loud (hard party style) but very nice relaxed place, with possibility to have a beer or drink and hang out in the bar or even hammocks on the roof. Rooms are basic but clean - more than enough to crash at night or even hang around all...

Comfy beds and nice recepcionists but breakfast was late at least 20mins, they are trying to get high grade by bribing people with free drinks, you cant bring your own alcohol without paying an extra fee. People were having sex in the mixed dorm.

We don't believe that to offer a complementary drink to the satisfied customers for spreading the word is bribing. Firstly, it's a temporary promo and secondly, only a satisfied people do it. It's a way to make people realize that the reviews are important for us. According to the law of this country you cannot consume an alcoholic drink in...

This is a great place. Very cute and lots of fun. My friends and I stayed for a night. I wish it was longer! It's so close to the beach, there's a clan kitchen, cheap beers and good beds. If I ever come back to playa, I'm definitely staying here again.

I liked this hotel, the reception staff was very nice, Diego is super kind but the bed hurted my back, it was in very bad shape. Also I didn't have control of the mini split which annoyed me a lot. The shared kitchen has a rule, write your name on your food and prevent if from getting eaten by others,...

Thank you very much for your opinion. I see if I can identify the mattress and change it. The aircon is turned on and off by receptionist to prevent losing the controler. It has a comfortable temperature set up and you can ask to change it or turn it on/off at the reception, we are happy to assist. We try...
