Great hostel. New ish owners are a lovely couple from Belgium. They were great to talk to and drank along with us. They are in the process of improving the place quite a bit. They also have 4 lovely pet dogs. Some of the stuff in the hostel needs some work (no shower certain meant the floor got wet easily for example) but on the whole great experience. Would go back again.


We spent 2 nights in the hard road villa..it was raining but the atmosphere was really nice. The owners are amazing! Super friendly and they always help u for everything! Location is good as well..close to the beach..half way for the full moon party..


My friend and I had a great stay here over the full moon party period in April, the villas are small so you meet people really quick and become a little community. The villas are off the beaten track a little which but not to far to walk to anything. The bar was pretty expensive also compared to other places. But I enjoyed my time here and would def stay again.


Upon arriving at the hostel Lucille was very pleasant and showed me to my room, which was lovely - seemed cool and clean with beds that were relatively comfortable. I was shocked however by the bathroom. It was very rundown, unclean and there was a definite issue with flushing of the toilet! Nothing in way of atmosphere that evening but able to use neighbouring hostels for that. It has a pool, and excellent wifi connection! I'd stay again, in the hope it was an 'off' day for the bathroom


Great spot but out of the way a bit! Perfect for a relaxing stay!


I originally booked only 3 nights 12 beds dormitory but end up staying a week now. The place is literally 1 min walking distance from the beautiful beach. There's a pool and common area you can either chill out or have fun with the others in the hostel. The manager, Jaquin is the best host I've ever met so far. He always makes sure we're all happy and feel at home. He's also very helpful with all the information you need about the island. Thanks to him and the rest of the crews :))


Awesome location next to the beach, also pretty close to the city center. The pool was nice and everyone staying there was very friendly. Great value for your money.


Big thanks to Joaquin for the warm welcome and fun times during my one week stay. There were almost no other guests when i was there (on the whole island actually), but this was still without doubt the best choice for accommodation. My only warning for the next guests in villa4: jacuzzi may contain Finnish girls and/or snake.


There were 6 of us that stayed here over the full moon period and loved it! Really chill atmosphere but great because the actual hostel is right across the street when you want to party. Bathrooms were cleaned daily and beds were comfy too!! Joaquin works the bar daily and is always around to help out which was awesome
