The sloth in the tree added greatly to the atmosphere of this place. There were also some brightly colored birds and very colorful iguana on the property. The ocean view from the swimming pool area is lovely.

The staff is very helpful. Gilbert at the reception was very nice and helped us with a tour we have programmed in advance. Regarding the breakfast, it was good, but the mix for the pancake is not that good. Other than than, it was great.

It would be nice to have an indoor area with sofa's to read when it is raining, for example. There is a very small one next to the reception, but it is not enough compared to the number of people. Maybe add some sofa's in the room where there is the kitchen?

There was a large group of students traveling that mad a tremendous amount of noise. The staff at the hostel were not helpful. It was after hours. The rooms were very dirty and so were the washrooms. I do t recommend staying here!!

I stay in a 12 bed dorms which it was perfect for the night as the dorm was empty, big common areas, included breakfast is good pancakes fruit and coffee, wifi it only works near the front desk. Overall does the job but nothing special, if I'm back will try to find something closer to the beach with a bit more character.

Bathrooms in the dorms were really dirty when we got there, but it could have just been that the other girls there messed it up. There was also some sort of leak in the ceiling of our room that would drip on us. And the receptionist got confused over our payments and tried to collect an extra payment for a nonexistent member of our group. Other than that, good facility with a beautiful view (on a clear day) and a pool that's open 24/7!

A hostel is for the coming and going...do not pay up until you leave; they will not give you a refund...even for just one night canceled 48 hours in advance. They push cash only, though you'd never know if you book with hostel world. Nice place, good breakfast, great view, and sloths live a tree on the property:)
