  • I have seen many beautiful spots around the world. And I have seen many beautiful hostels around the world. This hostel however, manages to be the most amazing hostel in the most amazing spot. The view is breathtaking, the rooms and bathrooms are clean, the staff friendly, the prices reasonable. Never felt any better in a hostel. Perfect for a long weekend for stressed out people from L.A. or San Francisco. I even considered extending my stay.
  • Second visit, and it feels like home. Friendly staff, gorgeous views, lively fellow travelers. Some repairs/improvements to facilities since last year. Beach not very accessible, and pretty much non-existent except at low tide. All in all a relaxing place.
  • Really good Place to be. Great Nature. Private beach. More families and older people.
  • This was our first time at a hostel, and we were conveniently surprised.We stood in room 1 which had it's own bathroom and 5 bunk beds. This hostel has 2 well equipped kitchen's with ocean views, staff made us feel very comfortable, and the front desk lady double's as a barista.she made the most delicious cappuccinos and we enjoyed them by the lighthouse as we watched the glorious sunset. This hostel is nestled on a cliff and has a little trail to it's own private beach, and at low tide you can observe the tide pools.Spectacular views any where you look!Thank you so very much to the staff, we had such a lovely time and will definitely return again.
  • Attend a weekly meditation group. This place is perfect, during high tide you can hear the waves crash...
