All rooms should have air conditioners. If a kitchen is supposed to open at 630am then the person opening should not be late. Office staff (both women) were amazing and incredibly helpful! Old man is cranky and should be more courteous and friendly.
Location and staff excellent, but one big flaw to the room - no air con! Was boiling and struggled to sleep as a result. Ceiling fan not adequate. The hostel itself was clean and good for a night though.
Best staff ever!

Corona's was very average; I guess you get what you pay for. The rooms had no AC, which was a bummer because it was super stuffy and the fans were not much relief. The lady at the desk was friendly, but the reception hours are ridiculous. They closed from noon until 4pm, super inconvenient! The best part of the hostel was the meal voucher you get each day for a $7 meal and drink at P J O'Briens. A total steal! However, I'm pretty sure other hostels have the same deal. Overall, unimpressive
No lockers. Staff really friendly and nice armosphere. Really quiet and realxing. Not AC just a fan.
Nowhere secure for luggage storage, but other than that, a pretty standard backpacker's. No cups in the kitchen, however. Excellent staff, really helpful and just an overall friendly, plus really really good value for the money! Booked for $13/night. Not the world's best hostel, but usually a $13/night hostel is terrifying, and this one was a delight.
It's very small hostel, WiFi is not free. The staff were not really helpful or friendly. It was very clean and I did enjoy the company of the people staying there. I would not stay here again. Sorry.
The staff at Corona are amazing! They helped us book our reef tour and walked us through other things we could do in the area and beyond. There was no pressure or sales tactics used, like you find at some other tourist shops. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. They also give a meal voucher here that gets you a huge meal and a boozy drink for only $7.
