Great staff! Very helpful. Neat and comfortable hostel with private rooms.(though bathrooms need a little attention.) Close to everything that is to offer. Breakfast basic but good. Sit around the fire at night. Very pleasant

I’ve stayed at this hostel twice before, both times during the winter there (June/July) , which admittedly can be a bit boring as everything is closed, but this time around I got to experience all of the services and amenities they have to offer. Not only is the location amazing - nothing beats waking up to the sounds and views of the ocean - but being able to walk down to grab a drink or breakfast with the same views and sounds is a great plus. We stayed in a couples private suite which included private bathroom and a small shared courtyard space with grill. Staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. They are exceptional in regards to making sure everyone is enjoying their stay and having a good time! Highly recommend staying here if you are visiting El Punto Del Diablo!

It was really humid and cols, but the fireplace at night was awesome with nice dinners. Not so bad not amazing. A nice place to stay for a couple of nights. The staff was helpful, again, not amazing. And the location is good, the private suites have nice views and they are cozy with private bathroom and hot water.

We were there during winter time so as expected for a low season it was very quiet. But prices were still very hight for the confort you get. The hostel seem a bit old and not updated. The 1st room where we stayed was quiet cold and humid. You fortunately we asked staff to changed room and they accepted. Breakfast was nice and staff was really cool. Without them we wouldn’t have stayed there. Thx to all of them. Without all of hem, it wouldn’t be the same
