Basic rooms and showers but good communal area, bar and kitchen. The hostel helped us arrange a great snorkelling tour andbeing able to use the kitchen was great. Make sure you bring a mosquito net!

This is a good hostel if you want to be out of the main town in a quiet area, the beach is exactly opposite and is quiet. The room was ok, with good air con but would be nice to have lockers. Bathroom was pretty clean, for outdoors. Kitchen is good and staff are very friendly and helpful. If you want somewhere to chill this is good but it's about 15/20 mins walk to town centre.

The hostel is a nice, clean property with friendly staff. The private room was nice, a/c, comfortable common area as well as adequate kitchen facilities. Our only complaint is that it is a 25 min walk to downtown and the waterfront area.

Great place to stay, just a bit further from the centre away from the noise, and its only 15 min walk (if you can't be bothered to walk taxi is only a dollar). The beach is just across the road. they also have got live music nights which are amazing! Many thanks to Huayra for all the help and answers to the neverending questions :)

Great hostel on the end of town but near some really nice beaches. The staff accommodated us because we had an early plane to catch

There were no lockers or any form of security. The doors didn't lock properly on the dorm rooms. The staff were polite but not very friendly. There was no atmosphere and it was the perfect place to chill if you like mosquito bites.

I was hardly at the hostel to write a review regarding atmosphere, but the beds were definately comfortable and A/C in the room made it that much better. I had no problem with the noise as many reviews state.
