The best part about the hostel - because it empty no one was on the wifi so I could video call home but maybe because of low season it definitely wasn't the place to meet people Also when I arrived there was no water so I was not able to have a shower after spending 3 days in the jungle but the staff did what they could at the time to try and help me


A nice place to stay around for a couple of days. Zu, the owner is very kind and helpfull and makes you feel like home. The breakfast is standard but helpfull in the morning. The rooms are clean, with ac and hot showers.
