my room was a dump and humid and damp and muggy and gross! private too! anyways, the guy who worked there was nice, chill people all the time in the area, a pool that resembles a fountain without the fountain. good location, you could walk to everywhere. ummmm yea, thats about it


There was no key for the room, just a key for a small locker.

Hi Stacey, we sorry for that but only privates has a key, dormitories are always open, thats why we gave you a key for a locker. Regards.


Really easy going atmosphere with cool beats in the backround all day. Good place to meet other travelers. The rooms, kitchen, bathrooms were clean and I always felt confortable and relaxed. Its in a good location to explore the city if you want to see something more then just the party avenue next to the beach. If you want a friendly and fun place to stay for a while do not look any further.


I enjoyed my stay. Hostel is very laid back and staff is very helpful and kind.
