The best affordable Beach Hostel and Beach House in Cabarete, Dominican Republic | Affordable beachfront accommodation in Cabarete for backpackers and low budget travelers

Beach Hostel in Cabarete – We really are the only one…

Welcome to our site, and congratulations – you’ve just discovered the pure backpacker beachfront paradise! Unique is a word that’s bandied around rather a lot these days, but in the case of our hostel in Cabarete – we really are the first. Located right on the beach, on the north shore of the Dominican Republic, this brand new hostel on the beach offers backpackers the opportunity of the kind of beach living that usually requires a mini-mortgage price tag!

Just a couple of steps from the vibrant centre of Cabarete, and on the doorstep of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, here you can wake up to the sound of the crashing waves and fresh ocean air. Step from your bed, leave your room and dive into the ocean. Take long walks along the endless sandy beaches or just relax beneath the shade of the rustling palms. And when night falls, having accommodation on the beach means you can build a fire in the sand and organize your own beach party with other, like minded, hostel guests.
Traditionally constructed, if you’re looking for an authentic Caribbean experience then our hostel is sure to delight. Amazing attention to detail, bright tropical colors, not to mention the satisfaction of knowing that your accommodation on the beach has been lovingly constructed by local artisans and craftsmen.  Our hostel really is one of a kind, because beachfront accommodation of this type in Cabarete is a rarity, and ours is the only one offering affordable accommodation for backpackers.

We understand that just because you’re travelling on a low budget, doesn’t mean you want to settle for second best. The ethic behind our hostel in Cabarete is to offer rooms and dormitories directly on the beach, at cheap prices but still offering a good level of comfort and facilities. We wanted to be able to welcome those travelling on a low budget an affordable room on the beach, which – up until now, simply wasn’t available in this area. But now backpackers too can enjoy living on the beach in Cabarete without overpaying for the privilege.


Our hostel in Cabarete offers nine rooms, six of which have an incredible ocean view.  Each really does offer beach living – just open the door and step out onto the golden sands.   Of course, it goes without saying that our rooms have comfortable beds and that are bathrooms and washrooms are kept spotlessly clean.

Clean  linen are provided for every guest, and if you need a mosquito net we hire these at $1 US per day.  The refreshing ocean breeze keeps the temperature pleasant, but if you want we have fans for hire for $1 US per day.

Use of the fully equipped kitchen for free.

Other facilities at our hostel on the beach include;

  • A small swimming pool
  • Garden patio
  • On-site bar to hang out with fellow travelers, down a few drinks and listen to music
  • Common kitchen

Cabarete police station is just across the road from our hostel, meaning our hostel is a truly safe place to enjoy your vacation.

Across the street there is a local ‘colmado.’ This is a small shop selling fruit, vegetables and other essentials. The biggest shop, the supermarket, is only 200 m away from us. Check out our site on Trip Advisor to find out more great things to do in Cabarete and the surrounding area, along with tips on how to get around on a budget.
