I booked an AC room and it was great, until the AC broke. A fan was provided though. Next night was a basic room with ceiling fan, but for the price it was great; simple and clean and with a great view from you private deck. There is also a nice shared kitchen to use, and I did, to prep my morning breakfast. And Juan at the front desk is great; always there and always helpful and friendly.

Great location & friendly young host. Big community kitchen to use for cooking. Value for price surely given. Make sure you get one of the bungalows up to the left with AC. The view is stunning all day (sunrise / daytime & sunset).

Everything is perfect here: the view on the sea, the location; the hostel is near the beach (5 minutes walking) the staff (Juan is nice and helpful) the HOT shower (loooove that coming back from the beach!), the bed is really comfortable and the kitchen is equipped to cook if you want to. Plus, there's a little supermarket just under the hostel :-) I recommand this hostel 100%!!

We enjoyed our stay here, our cabin was right at the top of the hill which was worth it for the beautiful views. The room was great for what we needed. There was no hot water but this was fine as it was so hot outside you didn't need it! It was close to restaurants, supermarket and beach, and a lovely ice cream shop for lovely milkshakes. They helped organise the boat for us to get there and were really friendly. They don't speak much English but it was fine, and also our fault for not speaking more spanish!

The property must have the BEST VIEWS in all of Drake Bay, excellent location within walking distance of everything including restaurants, tours, grocery store, and the beach. We sat on our balcony each day and watched at least 20 pairs of green parrots take off for the day and return each evening at sunset to nest in the nearby trees. The trees were full of vibrant birds and a huge green iguana. Juan was a very helpful and friendly host, arranged all tours and transport, suggested places to eat, which beaches to walk to, anything we needed. He was very gracious and helpful and seemed available any time of day. All tours were through Picolina Tours, the neighboring business which I gave 5-star reviews. Juan also arranged our transportation to and from the airport. The rooms are very basic and clean, with a wonderful balcony. There’s not “hot” water, but it’s warm and honestly was the perfect temperature (it seems silly now, but being from cold Alaska I was actually worried about this prior to our stay). There is a public use kitchen with two fridges, which I suggest you use for any and all food. DO NOT leave food in your room or ants will be an issue. We don’t suffer from ants in Alaska so this was a learning experience for us the first night. No meals or food are provided, but there are plenty of very close restaurants and two grocery stores within a 5 minute walk. There is a nice big fan set up to cool you off while sleeping, and plenty of screened windows for a fresh breeze. You need to run the fan not only to keep cool but also as white noise for the traffic at all hours of the night. Cabinas Murillo is an EXCELLENT value and we would stay there again!
