At the time of writing, being the only hostel in town that can be booked in advance online has led to this place becoming very popular with backpackers, and sadly a little over-priced. Situated on the beach, the hostel has comfortable six-person dorms with small battery-powered lights. It also has two solar-heated showers and one gas shower, as well as flushing toilets and a shared kitchen. A good breakfast is included and there is a bar playing battery-powered music at night. Relaxing hammocks too. Year-round.
On Playa Calavera - from the plaza, turn westwards along the main street, then the hostel is on the right.
