The 4YOU Hostal is modern, well cared-for and clean. We rented one of the private rooms and the accommodations were on par with much more expensive options. The surfboard locker ensured that your space remains uncluttered. The shared kitchen and common spaces represent a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded travelers from all over the world. Many guests, when we were...

marco and carola are super friendly and very welcoming. they run the joint like parents, always benevolent yet not hesitant to call out behaviors that don't follow the rules of the place, although always in a friendly manner. the place itself is squeaky clean and very modern, with all the amenities one would expect from a budget hostel and then...

I've stayed here twice and will return again. The owners Carole and Marco are the best. You feel at home and part of a family staying here. Super clean! Great options for dorm, semi-private, or private bungalow. I've stayed in a private room and semi-private room with shared facilities. I'd stay in the dorm too without any reservations. Not a...

I spent 10 days here and greatly enjoyed my stay. The buildings and facilities are very clean, well-organized and very comfortable. Everyone was friendly, and the price was affordable. I stayed in a dorm-style bed. The open-air design with big windows allows for a good air flow that's crucial in a tropical clime. The kitchen is very nice too.

It was the second time there with my girlfriend, we stayed in a private bungalow. We again had a good time there, it is conveniently located, close to many restaurants, not far from the beach, we do everything just by walking. The hostel is a good place to meet people but you can also mind your own business if that...

I love this place! I stayed here for the first time in March, and since then could not wait to come back. The hostel owners Marco and Carola are so nice & hold the fort down tight. I feel right at home right when I walk in. I still keep in contact with each and every dorm mate I had...

What a lovely place, run by the wonderful Marc and Carole. I've never seen anywhere so meticulously clean but still very relaxing. I stayed for a whole month and met many fab people over the time here. There's just a very cool vibe that attracts a nice attitude from everyone who stays. It's the perfect balance of peaceful and social....

One of the best travel experiences I have had! I traveled here alone and felt very safe and comfortable. Carole and Marc are two very attentive hosts and take care of getting to know all of their guests. This was the most luxurious hostel experience I have ever had and sets the bar very high for any future hostel travels!...

That has been the cleanest hostel I've probably ever been. And I have been traveling over 6 years now. The owner are very welcoming and friendly. Due to the big room, the curtains and the shelves between the beds the dorm offers some kind of "privacy". From the first day on my friends and I felt very comfortable and would...

“One of the private rooms has three beds and would be suitable for a "one child" family. Other private rooms are great for couples.”
