    I stayed for one night before moving to a nearby resort for a friend's wedding. I stayed in the private room, which was a decent size and confortable. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the hostel is within easy walking distance of a number of shops and restaurants. It was perfect for my needs and a very good value.

    It's a bit hard for cab drivers to find, because it doesn't have a sign. It's not air conditioned, which didn't bother me (there was a fan in my room), but some people might be looking for that.

    The hosts are a wonderful couple from Russia who are very warm and hospitable. They truly care about each other and about their guests. I enjoyed practicing my rusty Russian with them and watching movies with them on my laptop. I also liked meeting other travelers. I met two other Americans as well as someone from Germany. I liked the small swimming pool and gazebo in the backyard, and I was happy with the recommendations I was given for places to visit while there.

    The walk to the beach was a little bit farther than the walk from Bavaro Hostel, but I liked the fact that GAVA Hostel is more quiet and peaceful than Bavaro Hostel.

    Valentina & Andrew are just great persons; always friendly, flexible, smiling and helpful! At Gava Hostel, it's very easy to feel at home. If you are lucky, you will have the opportunity to share your room with amazing people (like I did). But in any case, the environment is just perfect, maybe the garden, the swimming pool and the palm trees have something to do with it. More or less 10 minutes walk to the beach and to the shopping areas. Great value for money, so I definitely recommend it to enjoy your stay in Bavaro - Punta Cana!

    Sometimes one bathroom is not enough...

    For those looking for an alternative to a resort, GAVA hostel is probably the best option. Great location (10 mins from the beach), one of the most affordable deals near Punta Cana, quiet and even offers a nice swimming pool! Valentina and Andrey (and Denise the golden retriever) were very welcoming and helpful which makes for a homely atmosphere. Just make sure you know how to get there from the airport as there is no sign (though our taxi driver could find it after we showed him the map that Valentina and Andrey sent us). We stayed in the private room and found it very nice and comfortable. Overall we'd strongly recommend GAVA Hostel!

    I liked the location and the friendly atmosphere.

    No air conditioning - it was extremely hot at night.

    Great location for the budget traveller, hosts are great too and helpful for all matters, Gava keeps up the backpacker attitude in an otherwise 'all inclusive' area. Beach and restaurants are easy to reach, and the bus connection to Santo Domingo is well explained on their blog site.

    Was a little hot in the upper bed because the fan didnt reach up

    Andrey and Valentina are great host, the hostel is small and very confortable. You still meet people and get a good night sleep! It is 10 min walking from the beach, next to local restaurant and cafe'. Highly recommended!

    Valentina and Andrey are great. I really appreciate there service in a place where there's almost no other choices (I hate all inclusive resorts). You can tell they've really put a lot of time and effort into making the hostel homely. Cheers!
