I stayed at the La Ballena hostel in Las Galeras for about 10 days. The room was clean and came with a bathroom, fan and mosquito net. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. There are two beaches in walking distance (playa grande and la playita) and many more are reachable by car. All in all, I had a great time and would totally recommend to everyone! (:
