Nice place not too far away from the center. The central common area was usually filled with fun people to talk to. Kitchen and bathrooms did fine. Only alot of people had to switch rooms during their stay which seemed unnecessary.
Enjoyed my stay here. Very chill common area, nice kitchen (though the refrigerator was constantly overloaded and impossible to put things in or find things afterwards), security was very lax with no locks on doors and sometimes no one at the front desk to watch who was coming in or out (though small lockers were available). Shame they don't offer free breakfast as its a bit of a walk to find coffee/food. All-in all an ok place to stay in touristy San Pedro
Slightly disappointed by the fact that my towel was stolen but apart form this, very nice inner courtyard where you can chill and meet other travelers. Bathrooms ok but nothing amazing.
We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel. At first, we were concerned about its location because it is about 5-10 mins away from downtown San Pedro and the roads to get there are very dark, but the town is pretty safe. The staff was great, the night we got there they had a problem with our reservation but they fixed it for us right away. Also, they allowed us to stay in the hostel much later than our check out time. They are very friendly and enjoy spending time with their guests.

Please, please enforce the quiet hours. Often there would be loud music in the courtyard until 2 a.m. when people had to get up for excursions that began at 5 a.m. Overall the sleeping situation was very unpleasant. The bunk beds were rickety. Every time I moved the slightest bit the top and bottom bunk shook.
This hostel isn't in the heart of the town, but its definitely more economical for the budget traveller and it doesn't hurt to have a little walk. The kitchen is extremely equip and there's an obvious community vibe which I liked. The downside is there's no lockers, and the rooms don't lock.
Really nice hostel & friendly staff. The one big negative, however, was that one of the beds in our room looked like someone had slept in it & was covered in hair. When we asked if it could be remade, one of the members of staff couldn't see what the fuss was about & said "so you're going to make the bed yourselves, right?" Shame because everything else was great!
The hot water was not available in all of the showers, at some point at night there was no water available. It was not very convenient that there was only one key for the 4 beds room. However, overall atmosphere is really nice.
