La Sombra Hostel El Tunco Reviews
La Sombra Hostel Apr 27, 2014
It did not take long for me to figure out which beach has everything I am looking for and for me to move there in the same day… El Tunco is just perfect for surf, enjoyment in the sea, beach, food and good company. Of course there is number of good hostels in town and my choice fell on La Sombra Hostel, one of the first hostels in the area. It is not so easy to find the place because it is in the small street, surrounded with few other properties, but if you ask around you will be directed to the right place.
That passage is guarded with security 24h and there is exit to the beach. It is not far away from the happening in the main commercial street and it is some 250m from the main road and buses.
La Sombra is not totally party hostel, and it has number of different rooms and dorms to choose from. There are many surfers that stay here permanently and they give very nice homey feel to hostel. Focal point of the yard is small but neat swimming pool with small nice deck and slack line crossing the water. That slack line is a bit dangerous for tall guys because you are falling into the pool and that pool is small, so there is good chance for your head to end on the side of the pool in the pool of blood…
Hostel is expending and they acquire the property next to theirs and connected two buildings with the stairs. Dorms are generally on the first floor, and I was in the four bed dorm that had everything needed for good stay. Every bed had its own fan, and it was usually good sleeping. Dorms have lockers, internet is available everywhere and place is clean. Outside in there is good kitchen area and places to chill (hammocks, chairs) and watch the TV. Restrooms are a bit overrun by mosquitoes but generally very clean and nice.
Very good place, but there is bunch of excellent places all around the town.
