  • Walaba hostel and beach houses was the first hostel I stayed at ever. For my first hostel experience it was something I want in with no expectation. I spent a good 3 days there in Puerto Vejo. This is not your party type hostel the atmosphere is relaxed and very much island time. Most of the people I met at the hostel kept to themselves which is fine yet as a solo travel definitely would have liked to meet more people. What I liked the most about this hostel was its location to beach, 2 minutes.

  • The hostel is located ideally in my opinion as the only sounds you hear are those of the birds and the howler monkeys. Punta Uva is a beautiful beach and there are times of the day when it feels like you have the whole beach to yourself. Maria, who runs the place was very sweet and helpful, advising us as to what would be the best things to do in the area as well as having good tips regarding restaurants/bars to go to. And yes, having hammocks all over the hostel gets a huge thumbs up from me.
