I stayed about two weeks in August 2014 in this lovely hostel. I was originally supposed to fly out August 7th, but I extended my stay for about a week to kite surf and live the Cabarete life. You won't find any better value for prices you pay at this hostel at the other hostels. The rooms are clean, and...

Management appears at their own convenience, very capable of taking your towel and key "deposit" but unless you feel like sitting around for 4 hours you might not get it back. Dorm is hotter than hell and the hostel is pretty far from the beach. Pay the extra 5 or 10 USD and stay somewhere closer to the beach

Me and a friend stayed at this wonderfull place for a week, had the time of my life. I've been to quite a few hostels throughout europe, and never met a more friendly and welcoming atmosphere. A 10 minute walk away from town, it features a pool, an italian resturant (the real pizza baked in stone oven), pool table, free...

We had a great time here. The atmosphere is great, relax during the day and party at night. Emiliano, the owner, was extremely helpful. He got us a great deal for car rentals and sat down with us and helped plan our trip. There is also a nice italian restaurant with great food! Simply the best place to stay in...

my wife and I booked a room for new years and paid a deposit. when we arrived the owner told us the room was not available and told us there was nothing he could do. We asked him for help looking for alternative accommodations to which he rudely replied "not my problem." Horrendous hospitality.

First of all let me update everyone on the kitchen situation. The kitchen is indeed available for guest use. We cooked a few meals there. It was never too crowded that we had to wait to cook or anything like that. The hostel itself is very spacious and has nice amenities (pool table, books and DVDs available, pool, etc). It's...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostel LagunaPark is a welcoming, clean and safe budget place to stay for young and open minded travelers. Turns out most people that arrive in LagunaPark are solo travelers, so in one way LagunaPark is the perfect for the ones that travel alone, because all guests happen to bond really fast with each other, help each other with tips and tricks and no one ever gets bored or lonely here. On the other hand the hostel has great facilities and discounts for group trips. Big rooms with 2-8 beds, en-suite bathrooms (shower & WC), big living room with cosy sofas, plasma TV and free WiFi. All guests are sharing a very well equipped kitchen, which we really take care of to be clean. For the ones that don't want to make their own breakfast, the HouseBar offers a little breakfast buffet for a very economic price and even cheaper if you sign up for it up front! LagunaPark is LagunaPark because the hostel is right in front of the beautiful natural park of Cabarete, the Lagoon. The outside area of the property is a big tropical garden with swimming pool and sunbeds, a BBQ area for little parties. Usually BBQs happen spontaneously like once or twice a week, family style everyone makes one dish and then we share...we've seen some spectacular things there, specialties from all around the world. LagunaPark became a place with a really nice vibe, family atmosphere, a place to spend only a night or even two month. No matter what you'll leave with good fun memories and a couple of new friends that you've made! ... more   less

“all the rooms are large..but the private rooms have no ceiling fans or working a.c...most of the dorms do @ least have ceiling fans..the price of a private room,not a good value..u could stay in a very nice hotel or even rent an entire apartment(with a.c.) for 30 $U.S...if your going to stay here go for the dorms,a way better value!”
