... outside and charge a ridiculous price to use them. We hardly saw any rental places for sun beds, hammocks or even toilets for people who cannot afford to stay on the beach front.

Aswell as the live band Monday and Thursday nights bring a magic show to the hostel. An Argentinian street performer gathers the entire hostel in the common area for an array of awesome tricks. I saw the show twice and my mind was blown each ...
