Too late to book private I stayed in a dorm. Bed was wide and plenty of space above considering it is a bunk bed. Terrace over the sea, lovely calming sound of the sea. Close enough to main street for a stroll in the evening for dinner and far enough to be a quieter spot of the town. Chapo the surf instructor, very accommodating and patient! He is clearly passionate about surfing and his guests to have a great time. Janet and Bryan made me feel welcomed and at home from the moment I checked in. Gracias.

After traveling around for four weeks and staying in very bad to mediocre hostels, I was ready to pay a lot for a nice place for at least one night. I ended up staying four.
It is by far the cleanest, coziest, friendliest hostel I have been to. It is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city, and at night you can listen to the waves under the house versus listening to drunk people out on the street.
The rooms are small but nice and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is set up well and is spacious enough for a few people to cook in. The deck over the water is my favorite spot...I am sitting here now, looking out over the bay, enjoying a peaceful breakfast. Maybe later I will jump off the dock and go for a swim. Or rent a kayak and paddle around for a few hours.
For $20 a night, this place is a steal. I couldn't recommend this place more!

Thank corth06
