|Pure good vibes! Here's the facade of Circle Hostel's La Union branch|
|Good morning indeed!|
|Bunk Area. They have privacy curtains and mosquito nets installed and each bed is provided|
beddings and one pillow.
After a quick light breakfast, we walked towards the beach, crossed the highway and passed through the San Juan Surf School. We were warned by the staff and fellow surfers that waves were wild due to the North Swell (surfer's term for a series of waves that moves from North to South). But since we were all newbies, we didn't really know what we were in for. Ignorance is bliss applied in this case.

|My fave, Passion Fruit Green Tea, 25% sweet. |
The franchise owners did a great job incorporating a surfer vibe to the interiors.
It's a great place to hang out if you're clamoring for a fresh brew of tea.
