    Cabo Polonio is beautiful. Lourdes and her daughter were charming. The one open restaurant served delicious food and Gabi was wonderful.
  • Adam
    I came off-season (mid August) and booked a room with shared bathroom, but really had the entire place for myself. So this is as good a value as it gets! The hosts were super friendly and chill. The bed was comfortable and with the blankets...

  • Sofia
    We stayed in a private room, the bathrooms are shared and they weren't very clean. The same happened with both kitchens at the hostel. The staff was amazing and the meals they cooked also.
  • Lorena
    Good location, good food and excelente people there.
  • Allan
    The welcome was very warm and we enjoyed a dinner with the staff! Very nice place, disconnected from the world! You can relax on the hammock next to a camp fire!
  • Reinaldo
    Best thing by far are the people and the vibe there, you don't need more than that to fully experience Cabo Polonio in a remarkable way. Jose from the staff apart from a great person is also a great cooker. My second third time there and I hope...
  • Elodie
