  • I loved this hostel! Chelo lives there, and she is a lovely, sweet older woman to treats her guests like her own children. She makes a huge plate of food for breakfast for everyone, and its really good! You will like it a lot! As for location, its directly in front of the ruins. She gives you a bicycle for free for your use during your stay. The bad, its right in front of a massive speed bump that you cant see, so there are always cars and trucks slamming into it. I recommend bringing ear plugs.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Chelo! She was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. And such a delicious breakfast to look forward to each day! Thanks Chelo for a wonderful stay at your beautiful home!

  • Even though the location was not the best, the service and atmosphere totally overweight the bad location - it was worth it. It felt like we stayed in a tree cottage and we loved it. Chelo and her sons were the best; they helped us out with good tips where to go and WHEN to go, and Chelo also made the most delicious breakfast ever every morning! It's a quiet place good for couples, so I wouldn't go there for partying. We had a great time!

  • Food amazing, bicycles handy, walking distance to beach (unlike downtown), staff were friendly and helpful far beyond expectation. Very close attention to detail in keeping their guesthouse consistent, clean, and guests cared for. Excellent for couples, good chill out areas for night time socializing too. Proximity to highway not for the lightest sleepers, but the speed-bump just outside makes for great entertainment value (and a safe spot to cross with bikes)!
