Actually I would rate Estrella 4 stars, but the place is so beautiful, the value for money deserves 5 stars. The building is unbelievably stunning, especially the open lobby with direct view of the ocean. The beach is just scross the street.
It looks like a high class hotel but has a hostel vibe with the laid back staff, shared bathrooms and small kitchen. This was no problem for us, we enjoyed the whole package. We had a room with ocean view from the side which was gorgeous.
Everything was super clean.
Only downsides: cold showers and if you wake up easily, it‘s quite loud from 7 in the morning (coffee machine and music). Also we has strong wind which was pounding at the windows and made the kitchen without doors difficult to use (the gas flame would turn off easily). We didn’t mind the rather hard matresses, they were still very comfortable.
If you get the chance, try the great cheesecake.More
