Security-wise there were no lockers in the rooms and the only option was to leave your valuables in the owners bedroom without beig able to use your own lock...would prefer a personal safe. THe worst thing security-wise was that we felt vey unsafe due to the pack of dogs that lived on the hostel's beach which barked and chased people at night. One scratched me and drew blood (I had been walking very slowly and calmly) meaning I had to visit the medical center and we couldn't use the beach.
It was a alright hostel, the staff was really nice, but they don't speak English very well. The toilets don't have a flush, we use a bucket of water. Also the wifi wasn't working, we asked everyday about it but they didn't know what and didn't really seam to care. On the last day we noticed that the Internet cable wasn't connect to the wifi modem, so of course it would never work, but we couldn't even explain the them because they don't speak English properly. It is a good place, but to great.
