I stayed here for a few nights in January. The location was fantastic, along with the rooms being neat, clean and comfortable. Most importantly, Gill the manager was super helpful and lovely; she was eager to help me with anything and went out her way to make sure I was happy with the service. I look forward to going back...

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...

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...

Lovely Hostel, Stay in a shared dorm with 3 other people, They were nice and quite. There are mosquitoes at night so cover up with a bed sheet cover. No AC, only fan which is enough for Punta Cana. Share bathroom and kitchen. They locked up at night for our safety. Only a 3 minute walk to the beach and...

I rented a bunk in the dorm while two of my friends booked a room in the shared apartment for the night. Great location, just a couple minutes from the beach in one direction, and another couple minutes to many restaurants/supermarket down the other way. Kitchen, refrigerators, Wi-Fi and fresh sheets provided. We stayed for 2 days and a night,...

Why stay at a resort when you can stay at one of the friendliest and welcoming hostels in Punta Cana. You forget youre staying at a hostel and start to believe youre staying at your families house . The reception staff, the housekeepers the owners are some of the kindest people ive had the pleasure of knowing. The hostel holds...

If you aren't the type for staying at expensive beach resorts, this is the perfect affordable alternative in the same great location (right next to the beach!). The people are very friendly here and the rooms are clean and light. They have private rooms for couples and families and the 6-person dorms for solo travellers. Depending on who is staying...

I stayed for three nights at this hostel along with three adult family members on the second week of july 2015. The best thing about the hostel might be its location. If you take Expreso Bávaro buses from Santo Domingo to get there, you can get off one block away from it. El Cortecito beach is only a five minute...

My son and I needed a place in Punta Cana for a night before heading off to explore other areas in the DR. The hostel can be challenging to find and was not well known to the Punta Cana car rental folks that gave us a lift out there. The set up of our private room with a shared bathroom...

The hostel has three or so rooms sharing one washroom and kitchenette. The rooms are small, hot and ugly. This is an expensive hostel especially for what you get. For about 5usd more than what they charge you can stay in a way better place nearby.(there is no lack of rooms for rent in this area...and if you really need...

Dear guest, We thank you for staying with us. We’re sorry to have not met your expectations. We do have small rooms, which we advertise as “small private rooms”; we do also have larger rooms available, which we sell as “big private rooms”- the cost is not very much greater and you’d likely have felt more comfortable upgrading for the...

Me and my boyfriend stayed for five nights in a private room and we loved it. Punta cana is full of expensive resorts so we wanted something a little more budget friendly since we have travelled for a long time. The location is great, just 100 meters from the beach and the restaurants right around the corner serves great food....
