Customer Reviews Puerto Vallarta - Hostel Vallarta Sun
|04 May 2013 Anne, Netherlands||70%|
|The hostel is in a great location. I was a bit disappointed when I found out that the rooms are windowless, but that can be a nice change for when the sun is merciless. A big plus is the airco in the bedrooms. The bed linnen were covered in hair when I arrived, but the staff friendly and changed the linnen immediately. The drinking water was very warm, I am not so sure it is really drinkable. The kitchen fridge where one is supposed to store food was incredibly filthy and has not been cleaned in a long time. The kitchen was a bit messy in general, with lots of foodstuff lying around in the open on one cramped shelf. There is no recycling for paper at the hostel, only for plastic bottles, but maybe paper recycling that does not exist in Mexico, I don't know. The staff was friendly although sometimes hard to find when "hiding" in the generally dark space of the common area.|

|The staff was incredibly knowledgable of the area, willing to share their knowledge, friendly and fun. The rooms were incredibly clean. The location is perfect near all the beach activities. I felt safe. That said what made the trip was the guide, Tom Deus, he knew the city and showed me things I would have never seen otherwise, like the beaches, tours of snorkeling and whale watching. Took care of all my needs.|

|Staff is knowledgable and friendly; great people that you'd want to hang out and have a drink with. Hostel is in a great location, close to pharmacies/stores, restaurants, ATMs/banks, buses, and of course the beach. Hostel is clean, has fast (free) wifi connection, and air conditioning!|

|This place is amazing: Air conditioning, soaking tub, hammocks, palapa lounge, and you couldn't have a better location. Nightlife begins half a block away with affordable quality restaurants and bars. Every bed has an electrical outlet, a reading lamp, and a shelf. I´ve been here for 2 weeks and feel like I could stay the whole season. The staff is really good about keeping the place clean and enforcing the rules (quiet hours). All of the nice public spaces also encourage good cameradarie among guests, including shared cooking and expiditions.|
