However, the bed was cleaned thoroughly right after the guy who slept on that bed mentioned it to the owner. Breakfast is standard;... More

María is the best! She makes the hostel feel like home and is so kind and helpful about places to go around the city. The hostel is very chill and comfortable and in a great location next to the beach. I look forward to returning some day!

"Casa de Mar" is not so much a hostel as it is kind of a big couchsurfing or AirBnB house. In which sense? In that you don´t feel that Maria is "serving" you. She is your HOST in a nice house. There are rooms in the house and bunk beds in the separate annex in the back garden, with its... More

Mariano and Maria are wonderful. My cousin and I absolutely loved this hostel, We stayed in the cute cottage style house located in the backyard. It was very comfy and private. The hostel was only a 5-10 minute walk to the main beach. The atmosphere was very laid back and friendly. We didn't want to leave and would go back... More
