Hostel
“Awesome Pizza. It's hard to believe that La Boheme is a hostel, the dorms/rooms are done with wonderful taste and are super clean. If there is anything that tops it, it is their restaurant! They have by far the best pizzas in the south coast, with awesome options and dough that is wood-fired to perfection. Can't get enough!!”
