Very good atmosphere, nice pool and hamongs. Good wifi , easy to make friends and bus transfer to town and airport. Liked it here . The only let down is the bathroom are not cleaned. I saw a tampon wrapper in the shower for three days.also ppl just helped them self to your stuff in the kitchen.


Very good place ! Staff are friendly, close to the beach and the city by bus This backpack its a big familly!


Nice people, would stay here again. Close to the beach:)


Stayed in a private so security was good. Staff was laid back and pleasant. Walking distance to cable beach and the bus to town passes the front door every 30 mins. Would stay again.


Great hostel, clean, nice atmosphere (really family-like). Some guests live there for months, everybody knows each other! Great, big kitchen where u can cook, use fridge. Nice common area! Can get dishes for 10$ deposit, very practical! Clean, simple rooms! They got swimming pool! A bit a party place, so if u r looking for something relaxing, u might be surprised by loud music in the evenings. I totally enjoyed my stay and were not bothered by the music.


It was not the cleanest of places, but that was the best part. I didn't want it to be! I wanted to get out of the big city, and living in a beach town means there will be sand and dirt everywhere. It was the atmosphere that made my trip, and the knowledgable, friendly, always happy and having fun staff. The marketing and social media presence is really taking off as well! The photos are all amazing and really show how much fun we had at this hostel! The pool was great and rooms were comfy!
