I had a great time staying here and would definitely go back. My only small complaint is that the owner, who keeps his three dogs there, had one of the dogs neutered during my stay. The dogs were quiet at first but when the dog came back from the vet with a big plastic cone around his neck all three dogs got agitated and there was a lot of barking for a day or two. The owner should have been there to comfort his dog when it returned from the vet, rather than leaving that to his guests.

I had this hostel booked because of the good reviews. Upon arrival though, we found the kitchen a mess, and the fridge filled with stale old food, with no room. We did not end up staying, but instead found a very nice hostel for a few dollars cheaper closer to the town area that had more restaurants and bars around it. The front desk clerk did not no much info about booking or rates since he only worked there 1 day a week. It might be good for some people , but this place was not for us.


Close to the beach, lots of hammocks in a cool patio, friendly people
