Very dirty went to brush my teeth and the tap came off in my hand, no toilet roll, beds were rock hard. On the other hand staff were lovely and great location.


Stayed at Palio for five nights during the Full Moon Party. Such a great spot! Super close to the beaches but out of the way of the mayhem. Have to walk only five minutes to be in the thick of it. The staff was phenomenal (especially Hiro and Emily!). Get to know them, they are so nice and have the best recommendations. Palio also has incredible communal space which is lacking in hostels closer to the beach. Stay here! Awesome location.

Nice hostel for full moon! On the night of full moon there was a free buffet with free paint and a free bucket as well! Beds were comfy enough and wasn't a far walk to the party either but wasn't right at the party so it wasn't loud when you were done for the night! Also have a boxing ring as apart of it with Muay Thai shows!


The staff was so friendly and took great care of us!!!


This hostel was nothing like it is advertised to be. We were led to an area in the back of the property, up terrible, steep, unsafe stairs to a small four walled shack with 4 beds, no windows or bathroom. On the far wall was a half door that lead into another small room with no windows and 4 beds. It was dirty and as you walked across the floor it was soft as tho if was rotting and felt like you could almost fall through. We did not feel safe there at all and checked out that same night.
