The hosts Sara and Baldo are great people and run a very nice hostel with many additional services.
My room was large, clean with a comfy bed and option of fan or AC.
The house is just close enough to town to allow easy access to everything but far enough away that you can escape what some nights becomes overwhelming noise.
I felt right at home, like a friend rather than a client.
The morning coffee is straight from the family plantation. the wifi is solid, laundry services in house. And you will enjoy any time you get interacting with the hosts. Baldo is apparently an really good surfer but I missed the opportunity to get a lesson with him- next time.
