I would stay again. The location is PHENOMENAL, though the accommodations themselves are quite old. The included breakfast was cooked pancakes, which were lovely, but you get them when they're served (circa 9 am in my case). I'd have preferred basic toast and cereal on my own clock quite honestly. Because the hostel is quite far south, the shuttle from the airport takes forever so cab it if you're tired. Going back to the airport the shuttle was fine: I was the last pickup.

Great location, really good staff. It lacks on having a nice hangout area but would stay there again as location is almost unbeatable.

A budget hostel, the only good thing is its location, poor facilities. the luggage storage is tiny and not enough for the guests. Un hostal barato, lo unico bueno es la ubicacion, las instaciones son muy pobres, el cuarto de almacenaje de equipaje es muy pequeño y no es suficiente para los huespedes.

Excellent location, it lacks in a better commune area but it has good services and staff is accommodating and helpful.

A friendly, interesting atmosphere. Nice people, happy to help and talk. Shame that some guests do not wash dishes, but I think the general common area needs some input. I don't think any sweeping/cleaning happened on a regular enough basis. There was no wifi out of the common area, which sucked after curfew. Bathroom in dorm constantly had a wet floor, plumbing problems? Hostel could probably do with some kind of maintenance reporting system, (for issues like wifi and wet floor).

Helpful staff, amazing location, facilities are so so. The bathroom, however, looks straight out of a horror movie set, but that's probably the only 'bad' point. The rest pretty average

Best location! Very close to the beach, on par with the expensive hotels in the area! Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Can be noisey at night due to people in the street but it didn't bother us. If you are looking for a 10/10 location this place is the one!

The people were nice. Quiet at ten PM was respected. The locked gate made you feel safe. There was always someone to open it immediately if you came back after ten PM. Trips around the island were offered as well as other activities, The location was ideal. Sheets and towels were nice and clean. The people were great. The only minus was the delivery trucks next door early in the morning made lots of noise talking and slamming doors.

Not clean, stuff got stolen, generally more random than nice. Staff was really nice and helpful, though.

The saying, 'you get what you pay for' is most surely true for this hostel. It is really cheap but also really dirty. If money is critical for you, go for it. Otherwise, leave it. It is the dirties place I every stayed at. The walls are dirty, the bathroom is falling apart and there are cockroaches crawling out in the night. on the upside, staff is really friendly and the location is great.

The place is a DUMP. Never stayed there. Paid for 1 night but as soon as we saw the room brought our luggage down the 3 flights of stairs (no elevator)

Location is great, easy access to everything. Rooms are big, but the bathroom doesn't look very good and the shower was pretty bad. It's nice that they have tours around the shores and they only cost 20 dollars for those staying there. The biggest problem that I had was that the staff (in general) wasn't very good about giving information and that made me upset a lot of times. It's a quiet place, so good for people that like to go to bed earlier to wake up early and enjoy the day.
