La Ruka Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2012

La Ruka is very laid back and homely, its smaller than a lot of the other hotels and a lot more friendly and kind. Wonderful fruit trees in the yard, with an outdoor kitchen. Its very hard to go in and out of there with out making new friends! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the town! Seriously you must check it out! There is no swimming pool or fitness center and i check excellent because the ocean and walk on the beach should be much perfered, don't hide from the Caribean check it out!
