  • I disagree with the negative comments. They run events every night, my bed was very comfortable, and though the breakfast was only cereal, you could go back as often as you liked. The staff were excellent (Rusty, Nicole, the young girl with the long red hair etc) and the location, although about 8 blocks from the beach, was fine. You could get to the ocean in about 15 mins, and I found the area peaceful and pleasant, not dangerous. Met people from all around the world. WILL stay again.

  • I loved my stay at the bikini hostel!! There is a great atmosphere especially because of the beer garden that belongs to it and is open to the public as well.It was so easy to meet a lot of people and have a good time just staying on the hostel property.The walk to the beach is short, around 10-15 minutes and you can get a free beach towel and even take a volleyball or so to the beach. Only the breakfast here is not really a breakfast unless you are on a diet and a bowl of cereal is enough. ;)

  • Hostel feels crammed and dirty, facilities falling apart. Yet it's got the best terrasse and atmosphere ever. For outgoing people who can give up comfort for the social aspect of it. Reception staff is average, especially the tranny who acted unnecessarily rude. Overall I still recommend it, just read the reviews )

  • One of the worst Hostels I've ever stayed at. They do absolutel NO events of any kind. The beds SUCK - they're so worn out it feels like sleeping on bricks. The rooms smell badly, the rest rooms are GROSS! There was no hot water in the bathroom. The breakfast is just cereal (like make a damn break fast!), the staff is slow and is very unhelpful (except a woman called Nina). The location is the worst - a dangerous neighbourhood and 35 Minutes walk from the ocean! Bad! Never again!

  • I booked 2 nights, on the last day I told reception I wanted to extend for 1 more night. At noon the next day I get an email saying I´ve been charged $25 for late check out. I was told to email the manager to get refunded the different (the dorm was only $21). Next day I checked out at 5 am, only to get another email at noon. Again $25 for late check out!! I emailed them & eventually I got the refund of $25 ($24,50 acctually), but not for the $4 different. I sent 5 emails but havn´t got a reply!

  • Our stay was, unfortunately, very short.. Bikini Beach hostel left us wishing we had more time to spend there. One of the best hostels that I've stayed at! 5 stars all 'round!!
