I spent a little bit more than 3 weeks in this hostel in Bavaro and I loved it! If you book your own room, you share shower and kitchen with another room. A great way to meet new people :) The rooms are not huge but big enough. I mean, you don't visit Bavaro because you want to spend a... More

The staff was really helpful. We received a lot of good tips about where to eat, do shopping, etc. Place is located near to the beach. Rooms are rather small, but if you do not plan to spend much time in the hostel you should be ok with that. The only thing that bothered us was smell/colour of the tap... More

The hostel is located near the beach with restaurants and juice stores near by. There are moto taxis waiting outside, but bargain hard. The hostel is 3 floors and the dorm rooms are Spartan. The rooms can get very hot and lots of mosquitos around. If you are not comfortable with the heat, then stay away or get a private... More

The Price was fair, the place was Nice and clean although a bit basic. The staff at Bavaro Hostel were very Nice and helpful. The location is pretty good, 5 min. from the Beach... More

I stayed at the Bavaro Hostel in Punta Cana recently. I've stayed in hostels before and so far this is my favorite one. I can't wait to go back. It's super close to the beach and literally next door to great restaurants / music venues and grocery stores. The kitchen had everything I needed to prepare my meals. I felt... More

Friendly staff. Good, non-party hostel atmosphere with bars starting just a block away. Rooms are mostly good but our room had no screens in the window so the choice was heat or mosquitos. This was the only real issue we had. The hot water was great and the wifi in the common area was good though not available on the... More

Hi! Thanks for the review! We equip all the rooms with fans, usually that's more than enough, but some nights can be especially humid. (We have a couple of rooms with A/C available for an extra fee just in case). The wifi is stronger in some rooms than others (we're working on getting fuller coverage), so we provide all our...
