Enjoyed our stay here, pool is a huge bonus for price you pay but breakfast is super basic just cereal. Rooms are not the cleanest especially the bathrooms could so with some more love.

Friendly and cosy little hostel. Double beds! Shower facilities were a little shabby but spacious


Hostel is in good location near the town, beach and ruins. The hostel has a kitchen and a pool but seems to lack atmosphere, may have been because we were there when it was raining. One staff member who checked us in was really friendly and helpful but cannot say the same for the other staff. The private room was huge with two double beds. However, the bathroom always had a bad smell coming from the drain. Air conditioning in the room but only allowed at night. Overall pretty average for price.


We really enjoyed it here thought it was great value for money. In a good location! Got savaged by Mosquitos but what do you expect being by the jungle. Pool, bar, hot water, double beds, free breakky, friendly staff. Definatly recommend this hostel!


Our initial booking was lost but they did a good job of finding us alternative accommodation for our first night. Wifi in the rooms is good, and the location is not bad either - on the edge of town and a 20 minute bike ride to the beach or the ruins. However our room was pretty gross, the shower curtain and bathroom was mouldy, the sheets and towels had lots of stains, and the floors were obviously mopped with filthy water because there were huge black water marks all over the floors. Ick.


Staff were horrible, beds not clean, bathroom filthy


Great location (with good restaurants across the street, dive shop next to it, convenient store & supermarket nearby). Plus, you can drive and park your car outside. Overall, I would return here again. The only downside is the mosquito. Just got bitten too many times.


I hate giving a bad review but unfortunately after 3sleepless nights i have to. Room 5 is the 5bed dorm on the second floor right beside the bar and every night they play stupidly loud music. I like to party but when your planning on getting up at 7am to cycle to the ruin the house or trance music can get a little old. I complained to the reception the first morning asking did it have to be do loud. The next night i asked the DJ to turn it down his response was "the manager wants its loud"


Nice hostel not my fav though


Fantastic location close to centre and wrestling, staff were amazing! Very helpful and spoke great English. No bar but a great rooftop area to drink and hangout. Great hostel! Highly recommend staying here.

All inclusive hostel, comfortable clean bed, hot shower, use of commercial kitchen plus groceries within walking distance, swimming pool, patio, pool table and bar. On a main road but noise was not an issue. A+++ staff, knowledgeable and helpful

The beds are really big so if you want to save money share a bed. Hostal Chalupa is also one if the hostels closest to the beach and there is a bike rental just next door which we appreciated very much. Over all a very good hostel!
