Prices go from $8 to $10 per person. Rooms for separate individuals as well as couples. The rooms are big and cozy. Wood is all over the Hosteria which was build about 30 years ago. Fresh and well iluminated. The feeling of this place is like an old confortable house right on dunes of Playas beaches. The view to the ocean is soothing as well as the vibes. Small pool, billiard table, as well as beach breaks close by makes for a relaxed stay at Playas. Also good home made food on menu.
