I loved this place. Best kitchen of any hostel I have been to. Overlooks the main break. Miguel the owner is a classy bruddah, Teaches all the local kids to surf n boggie board and has nothing but respect out in the water. My spanish and surf improved so much at this place. It is in front of challenging reef breaks and while everyone can speak some english they help a ton with your spanish skills. I can't wait to return one day. Much Love n Peace.
