Hacienda Merida is absolutely beautiful. It's quiet, peaceful and the sunsets are absolutely amazing. The atmosphere here is very relaxed and it is definitely not a party hostel. The nature is so untouched, and it is in a great location to hike the amazing Maderas Volcano or hike to the San Ramon Waterfall. They also have kayaks here, and they...

We stayed here for three days in February. Had a beautiful room overlooking the lake. The hostel was calm and quiet (nothing like the party environment of some of the hostels we'd heard about in the island). We kayaked and hiked and had massages on our deck looking out onto the lake at sunset. We also took the bus to...

Really enjoyed the kayaking and the sunsets from the dock. This place is far out to get to but very relaxing once you get there. We had an upstairs room which was comfortable. We hired a moped but you have to go very slowly along the long unpaved road there due to the stones and holes.

A very beautiful place, but quite far away from the other hostels. The owner of the hostel has built a school from plastic bottles, wich he pays the local people for collecting them. It keeps the area Nice And clean! The rooms are very basic

Hacienda Merida is a beautifully quiet hostel on the far end of the island. This end is less well developed and far more attractive and exciting. The hostel itself has very clean rooms with lovely bathrooms and a range of different sleeping options. The sunset view from their pier is by far the best on the island and is an...

The hostel has a nice surrounding garden, but there is not really a beach. Only a place where you can enter with the Kayaks. We read the comments here too late, when we had already reserved. But nothing changed, if you want to get there or leave you either book a much overpriced taxi for 30$ or you have a...

We had a private double room which was quite small but the bathroom was ok. The bed didnt seem to be very clean. Unfortunately we were very disappointed in the restaurant. The service was bad (they forgot orders, were slow and unmotivated)! Luckily we found the Bar Margarita (5 min from the Hacienda), cheap and great local food. The good...

Great spot but don't think you will be getting any peace and quiet if you are on the ground floor. Kids start school at 7.30 and their whiteboard backs on to one of the rooms. Like what they are doing in helping the local school children but doesn't make for a relaxing stay as they are running around screaming all...

The dorm room was not available so I was put into a private 4 bedroom at the same price as for a dorm room, which was great (fair enough though, not my fault it was not available). The location is awesome if you are trying to get away from it all, I really liked it because you spot lots of...
