For my first Hostal I had ever stayed in, on my first solo adventure, Shalom felt great! A wide selection of rooms. A pool. A close walk to the best beach for swimming and the sunset. A short walk to the center of town. Taxi's stop by often. The staff helped fix a shower head that wasn't showering. And, you can bring in your own beer, or wine, unlike many of the hostals I came across on my travels.
Having a kitchen at a hostal is a crucial factor for those traveling on a shoestring. The one here, although, functional and clean(always do your dishes!!) was dark, had a small fridge, and was quite hot during the afternoons and early evenings. With a more comfortable kitchen, Hostal Shalom would have gotten a 5/5 rating.
Remember travelers, Hostals are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days years. Give thanks for what they do for you. That's a hell of a job
