The hostel was very dirty. The room looked like it wasn't cleaned between guests just new bedding put out. Dirty dishes left by someone else in the kitchenette. The communal kitchen has cockroaches. Was also a very loud hostel. Partying was supposed to stop at 10 but the staff were nowhere to be found to tell the guests to be quiet.

Awesome chill vibe, tennis courts, pool, wifi, lounge, had everything and a great location. The bed was actually insanely comfy and it was nice they had mostly smaller rooms. Definitely recommended.

I had a great time here- the open shared dining/drinking area and common kitchen are great places to meet other travelers. On the negative side, the room needed some better ventilation and the bunk bed complained loudly at any movement. Men's bathroom was great, the kitchen had all the necessities and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Planned to stay one night here but ended up cancelling my future bookings elsewhere and extending here. Cool facilities, loved chilling by the pool and the free WIFI (which wasn't always working though) . Staff are awesome, especially Josh

It would be easier if this hostel simply describes itself as a party-hostel. Then you know what to expect. Loud music, loud people 'til night. Also quite dirty and untidy place. Also, the kitchen is not well-equipped.

Kitchen was very dirty, room smelled and carpet was soaked so couldnt walk or put any bags on it, party until 11pm outisde every night however always quiet after 11pm. Nice with the pool and spa, we got upgraded to ensuite which was nice, good location on the street where all hostels are.

DONT GO IF YOU'RE OVER 20! this place is a mess, everything is dirty, the facilities are in bad shape, toilet & showers are flooded most of the time! Noise and loud music up until 2am EVERY NIGHT! The staff are all travelers so no one cares about anything We had to stay the whole 4 nights just because they wouldn't give us any refund. Travel safe guys

Loved the setup and atmosphere. Always had great music playing in the courtyard area. Stayed there over New Year's Eve and had a blast.

This hostel was a big disappointment. This place needs proffesional cleaning. Carpet in my room was dirty especially under the bed. Old dishes, food leftovers and bottles in patio and in the kitchens. Very loud music non-stop from 9:30am-11pm. There is no quiet place - you hear the music everywhere. Impossible to sleep if you want sleep longer or go to bed early because of the music. Bad security - everyone can enter the hostel easily from the street. Front desk staff was nice and helpful.

Wifi problems but it was fixed later. The kitchen only open at 7.00am.

It's good to have a swimming pool, a spa and a tennis court. Also, suites with shower and kitchen included are just 30 $, so it's great value. The staff was very nice and helpful, and the atmosphere was cool every evening. Just remember to close your room with the key every time, as I lost my beers that were in the fridge in my room.

This is not the hostel for you if you enjoy a quiet relaxing atmosphere or prefer to go to bed early-- Parties in the patio/common area each night I was there. Overall the hostel was a little grungy and could use a deep clean. Not very tidy, kitchen was grimy, beer bottles and glasses were left out on tables on the patio overnight. This hostel had a good location, close to the beach and a only short 5 minute walk from town.
