Hostal Plaza San Pedro is a family run Hostal offering a home from home for backpackers and holiday makers alike. We are situated in the centre of San Pedro just 2 mins walk from the main town square and 15 minutes walk from the beach. All our rooms are en suite and have aircon. We are in the process of turning the Hostal into a very creative space with rooms and communal areas decorated by different artists from around Europe.
