I was recommended to this hostel by a friend, though I should have trusted the reviews on the site and booked another one. The hostel is ok, but nothing more than that, it has no personality, and the facilities are pretty average, with internet not working most of the time. The owners apparently change all the time, and those currently managing the place are very nice, but they don't know the backpacker needs, so no atmosphere. It is a place for families rather than for backpackers.
Pedro and his wife were so friendly and very welcoming throughout our stay. Lovely breakfast and good location right next to the main strip.
