The dorms are really a really bad. Dirty, stinky plastic mattresses..hot at night. The restaurant by is really good. The comon kitchen instead is no kitchen! Was ok to stay there for the last night before our boat left to San Blas, because we met the other crew members there.

The staff was very friendly, but the sleeping accommodations (beds, bathroom, etc) were terrible. We were the only people staying there that night...we were given sheets...that's all....The beds and pillows were stinky and atrociously uncomfortable. The restroom was dirty, the shower had no hot water and there wasn't even a shower head...just a straight stream of cold water. The place has so much potential....but the owner obviously doesn't care about making the place comfortable at all.

I had a very bad first contact when I got there, I was lost and tired and just ask a simple question to the Manager and he gave me attitude... That was pretty rude but then I met captain Marco which was very nice and openminded and offered me to stay at his other place which was much better. clean room He made me a good deal and his colleague Douglas was also very friendly and welcoming. Maybe I just had a bad luck and the captain Jack but I would strongly recommend Marco's advice for anything.

It was nice to stay there 2 nights, the atmosphere is very familiar and friendly and the staff as well: it is lovely spending time on the terrace of the hostel which is a sort of meeting point for travellers. It is charming to listen to Capitain Jack's adventures and share our travel experience with the others drinking a tasty mohjto and eating delicious food. Thank you!

Expensive for a dorm bed. Food in restaurant was delicious yet quite over priced. Only hostel in town, hence the ramped up prices. Beds were pretty awful. Pillows were stained with mould and had to request bed linen. Doors were left open constantly. Lockers could have been opened easily with a screwdriver.

I have been not satisfied at all for the following reasons: Marco- who's supposed the owner did provide unconsistent information, such as bus time schedule. We have been waited for two hoirs and half ( from 7:45 to 10:15) a bus to La Guayra. To get there we spent 15dollar and time aftterwards. A owner should provide corect details and inform hiself regularly with local transport public. These are very important service for backpackers. Beside this, he said that the restaurant at the hostel accep
