The staff at The Search House did an amazing job in creating a welcoming environment for travels around the world to connect, and engaged us in activities even during rainy days. They encourage environmentally friendly practices by assigning each visitor a reusable cup, and by encouraging things like recycling and short showers. The hostel is right on the beach, so we started enjoying the sun, sand, and ocean after our free breakfast every day. I tried the pizza and burgers from their kitchen and they were suuuuper tasty (strong caipirinhas too!). There’s a lot to enjoy, even on rainy days here like ping pong, Netflix on their big screen, board games and video games, local hikes, and skateboarding on their quarter pipe. I heard the beach the hostel is on is around 11 km long - it has really clean water and sand and is great for long walks. Thank you to the Search House staff for excellent service!

Fantastically cool and chilled out hostel that felt like you were in your own house. We stayed some nights in one of the outdoor private rooms which were fine and also stayed some nights in one of the dorms which had the biggest bathroom of any dorm I have ever stayed in. Lovely common area and kitchen and the pool and pool bar were great. Awesome to have private access straight out onto the beach from the back of the property. Will definitely come back some day.

I cannot rave about how amazing this hostel is. It is like staying at your friends beach house, location is amazing, the hostel itself is beautiful and like a friends beach side house- with a walk in wardrobe! Most of all the staff are the best! Was supposed to stay 1 night but ended up staying over a week! It felt like a beautiful family- have been travelling south america for 6 months and no other hostel comes close to this. We cried when we left and have made some friends for life! Thank you for everything, love jat and emily x
