There is no soap, no windows in the rooms and the shower does not work properly. When asked to fix they became angry. Also not one word of English is spoken by any hotel staff. There are better hostels for your money!!

Before arriving, we were told the rooms would be 12 mil pesos a person but upon arrival, we were told that our rooms had been given to other people and we would have to share two rooms for 5 people, each with one double size bed. Not only did she not give us a discount for three people sleeping in...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hostal Puritama. Their location is as good as it gets on Caracoles street, very close to all the good tour agencies and restaurants. The staff was fantastic. They heated up the water extra when I asked how warm the showers were. They organized two great tours for me with very good companies. When I...

When you are in hospitality business, you need to meet certain ethical criteria and this place definitely does not. First of all, this place is overpriced like the rest of the town and this is one of the cheaper accommodation you may find. We stayed there 4 nights and in our last night we had to change the room because...

We ended staying here for 6 nights, as we found it difficult to leave San Pedro, partly as it's a great place and partly due to the demand for buses!!! Pros.... Good staff, great location, good common area, nice kitchen, comfortable beds, good shower, quiet and relaxing vibe (especially in rooms at the end of the garden), very clean throughout,...

The place is quite clean but 2 days into our 4 days stay we got the last night cancelled simply because a bigger group had arrived and they needed the room. We were simply told that it was "the boss' decision". We couldn't talk to the boss because he was "far away". It should be a basic premise that one...

I stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. The first thing when we arrived was being read the riot act. No drinking, no using the courtyard after 11pm, no putting your bag on the bed, no washing of anything in the sink, no hanging anything in the room etc. We felt a bit like children! The courtyard...

Small hotel close to the centre of the town. Room was triple share and very small with one double and a bunk bed. No room to even put a case down on the floor. Bathroom door did not shut so a bit public when three girls are sharing !!! Room (10) had a padlock on the door as the key...

Well located just out of the busy part of the village, we were given a lovely room with its own terrace, table & chairs and access to the communal kitchen. the owner gave us a decent rate of $84 a night for the family (it was out of season) for which we were very grateful, having just been almost stung...

I cannot express how much of an amazing place this is to stay. My partner and I stayed there recently and unfortunately while sand boarding he had an accident which meant we had to extend our stay in San Pedro. The hotel were very welcoming and helpful. I cannot thank the staff enough, especially the wonderful Maria. She is an...
