And of course the value is excellent!...

David and Fernando were awesome hosts - enthusiastic, friendly and heaps of fun. They create a really welcoming atmosphere for everyone - a great new years with a huge shared dinner then beach parties. The outside kitchen and shared areas work really well and are great for relaxing. Thanks Fernando and David - come to NZ!

El Nagual was perhaps our favourite hostel in all of mexico, we came for 3 days and ended up staying well over a week. The two owners are incredibly dedicated to looking after their guests and are great people that we would now call two good friends of ours. The kitchen is very well stocked, and the place sums up...
