I don't feel like this place is really a hostel. It's overpriced for what it's worth. The staff are friendly though and ready to help you with planning, however they don't speak much English and the help they offer, though genuine, is not of much use. The location is a little out of the way as well, not much going on. No where to lock your valuables, but since it's such a small apartment there is not much to worry about. Breakfast is included. Awkward environment. Would be nicer in dry season.


Nice hostel, good rooms, clean and a great staff. They were very kind from the moment I arrived until the checkout.


Best recomendation. very close to the beach. Nice staff


If they had only mosquito net, it'd be so perfect for me. Everything I loved. Nothing to complain about other than mosquito net :)

Just a pity to dismiss personal which is working really very hard and well! From one day to another!!! Real reasons are demanded! It is the most important that the personel speaks English this can help travellers a lot and they feel quickly comfortable. No space to sleep for the personal (just couch)! ....and no mosquito nets!
