We had a great time staying at Caza Olas and recommend it to everyone. Very well kept and clean. There was a cleaning lady there every day and she would also cook food for us if we asked. There is a full kitchen two refrigerators and plenty of fresh clean water which was kept cold for drinking.

I had a fantastic time at Caza Olas and went even back for another week! Staff and owner are very friendly, the hostel is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. Caza Olas feels like home and is a hostel with family flair. It is in the center of Pavones, 2 min walk to the perfect wave of Pavones!... More
