This hostel was amazing, far better than the ratings suggest. It's like a quiet escape to the green, very relaxed, refreshing pool, with beach, supermarket and restaurants next door. The hostel's staff contributed to a good atmosphere in any way & went beyond doing their job. The dorms are spacious & open, with sufficient fans, very clean, the kitchen is well equipped. Many people try to stay a longer time (some weeks or even months) in the hostel. The only ATM in town is quite far away, though.
This hostel was NOT worth $20 per night. There are so many other hostels that are closer to town and better priced. There is no A/C, only 1 fan for the whole room. The rooms smelled of mold. "Breakfast" was toast. Towels are not included; you have to pay to rent them out. Also, they don't take credit cards so if you need to get cash, you have to walk all the way to the other side of town to get cash. There are many other hostels that provide the same things as this one for less money & closer.
