Overall it was a excellent buy for your dollar. It could use some lockers but the Italian managers were more than willing to secure my valuables. A great place if you want your own beach (30 feet from the sand) or walk a few blocks and mingle with the tourist or cruise ship (Mondays) personnel. Take your bug spray if if is rainy season.


If you don't have a problem with mice running around and the staff stealing your beer without compensation, it is a perfect place! There are good things also but that was part of my experience.

The hostel is advertised as having hot water and ceiling fans; yet our room had only cold water, and a broken ceiling fan (and quite a bit more ants than we expected). Little or no security or check-in to speak of; you just simply had to track down this one young man who was never really around. Hey, it's cheap - but I wouldn't necessarily recommend this hostel. Good luck!
