Hostel very dirty and disorganized, had to trouble tracking down workers often and they forgot to bring my sheets several hours after I checked in. "Bar" was supposed to open at 8pm and it opened after 9pm. But they did have fair prices and gave me a free beer. They were very nice and personable but the hostel is quite dirty and really needs a thorough cleaning. Nice and close to the beach though. And good price.


First I thought this hostel would be nice because if its good rate, but actually it's not at all. It's absolutely crowded and not enough space for 50 guests and additionally a structure is missing... The building isn't pretty at all, everywhere there a laying things around, not tidy, but the worst was that it's really dirty! I had to ask for new sheets because mine were dirty and full of mold! The staff presented me three different ones until one was ok... Don't go there, rather pay more! I


Great hostel!


This was the worst hostel experience I've ever had - the entire place was filthy, full of cigarette butts and trash, and bathrooms were not cleaned once. Each part of the hostel had a different bad smell- the entire patio (where breakfast is served) smelled like sewage, the entrance to our room smelled like hot cheesy sweat and the room itself was incredibly stuffy and full of Mosquitos and FLEAS in the beds. The staff was fine but very disorganized and didn't seem to know what was going on.


Very nice stay, good breakfast and good Wi-Fi, good location beside the bus stop. Place needs a good clean and painting as it feels a little dirty, plus the smell from the outside bathroom is foul. Overall great value and a great place to stay.


Came to this hostel because I wanted to explore the southern weave of the island after 5 days in the middle and north. Hostel was super easy to access by bus, and there are places to eat and supermarkets really close. Breakfast was good, staff were super nice and helpful. Room had AC (so amazing). Did get bitten by quite a few mosquitoes. Maybe screens on the door or a fan would help? Totally good, reasonable place to stay if you want to stay in the south part of the island.
