I had a wonderful experience at PBH last week. My first impression walking into the hostel was to be greeted by the very friendly staff. They quickly checked me in and proceeded to tell me all the awesome things I could do during my 3 day stay there. The beach is breathtaking, very open, breezy and has some great waves for surfing right infront of the property - with the famous popoyo break just a 10 minute walk away. I rented my board there and they were able to help me secure an instructor for my lessons. At the hostel they also have a balancing board, foosball or table football and a Ping Ping table which make for some downtime fun. Hammocks all around, bamboo chairs right on the beach, made it extremely easy to relax and forget about life back in the city. The rooms are comfortable, and a great deal for the low price. You can expect to have a quality stay without breaking your wallet. The prices for everything are considerably low. The food was great, especialy the last breakfast I had there which was off the chain. I had one of the most delicious omelettes I've ever had. The staff would plan bonfires every other night which attracted people from all the lodgings nearby. This was great as it made it easy to meet the many other fellow travelers.
In short: I was expecting something relaxing, but still fun. I found that at PBH and much more.
