From all the hostels I’ve stayed at during my journeys, very few times I met people so useless as the guys that work here! They seemed completely retarded!!
Anyway… it’s a nice hostel and is the closest one to the bus station. It’s a three stories building; the dorms are at the first floor, the private rooms at the second one and the kitchen and ‘living room’ on the roof. Since it is located one block from the beach, the view from the roof is amazing!
Unique Quality: Free breakfast (milk & cereals, and if you're lucky ... some bread).
Directions: Right across the street from the bus station
The thing that makes this place perfect is location. Right in front of the bus station, right at the beginning of Quinta Avenida (which is the main street for restaurants, bars and clubs).
It has a lovely "deck" (terraza in spanish) where you get to see the beach and Quinta Avenida, have a drink (you bring it yourself), and get to know great people that has been around the place for a while and/or planning other trips around the country.
Safe and clean (according to my experience). A two bed bedroom will be $35 per night , with a hammock on the balcony! althought the bathroom is still shared with a few people (not too many). There are also beds for $10 bucks a night to share with more folks.
The perfect place for backpackers!
