    I highly recommend this hostel, though I rated it's location and staff as average. The staff does not offer information - you have to ask for it. But they are helpful once asked. The location is not near a lot, but it is close to a grocery and not that far from restaurants. The best part of this place are there facilities. The pool is great, the kitchen, TV room, and bar are pristine. Seriously... you could just stay in the hostel and it would be a great trip. Pizza can be delivered.
