    I really liked staying in this hostel, the staff was really nice, they even helped us book a diving trip in advance. The rooms were quite small but the beds were comfortable and the sheets were clean. The 2 kitchens were a little bit messy but they were ok to cook. The lounge area with the bar and the pool were really cool, I'd only advise checking some of the couches which didn't smell very good. The location was ok, you had a bus stop one block away and you also had free shuttle buses to town.
