The Wild Fig looked good on website however was disappointed as it is bit dark in the common area (slightly cluttered) and it very very smoky place- not ideal for those who don't or hate smoke- not nice to wake up in the morning to smell smoke in your room!should have a OUTDOOR smoking area. Location is good if you want to be near the bus station but its a good 25 mins walk into center. Staff and the cat are friendly though.
First night I got some sleep but second night other guests kept coming in and out till about 5am. Kettle needs replacing. Ordered coffee

Very friendly staff with really good tips on food and drinks in the old town. The rooms are tidy and the bathroom was very clean. Everything you long for in a hostel is present and more. It's close too the bus station and a 20min walk from the old town.
Great place to stay to rest, relax and meet people. It`s about 5 minutes walk from the bus station. The atmosphere is really good and I can tell that the people in the hostel put a great deal of effort into turning it into a party hostel. When I was there there wasn't that many people but I was able to rest and recover from my trip. I really liked the wild fig. Especially Fig, the crazy cat of the hostel :) It`s a bit far from the old town (20 min) but you can walk there along the beach!!:)
Really cool atmosphere in this hostel, very international! Friendly staff, nice kitchen for all, tasty wild figs directly from the tree. Just 5 minutes walk to the beach, that's awsome. Hostel is a bit outside the center, with car no problem.
Had a fantastic time at the Wild Fig, one of the nicest hostels I've been to. Originally planned on staying for one night, ended up for five largely due to the hostel itself. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat. A little far from the old town, but nicely located by the bus terminal and beaches. / lots of smoke billowing around, may be a minus for a non-smoker.
This was the first hostel my brother ever stayed in, and staying here made him fall in love with hostelling! If I could give the staff a ranking higher than Excellent then I would - everyone was really wonderful and helped us get into the swing of the holiday! If you wanted to go out for the evening then Pierre's bar tours are perfect! (You must have smoothie to recover in the morning too!) And if you just want a quiet night in that works too! Worth another visit definitely!
Really nice staff and facilities. Far from old town - you have to walk around 30 minutes to get there. Supermarket 2 minutes away. Nice beach close by.
Great kitchen; large, clean, lots of equipment. Rooms only had small locker, big enough for a small bag, not a large backpack. The location is a bit out of the way; about 20 mins walk to old town, but not a problem if you don't mind the walk. A pretty well-run hostel.
The hostel was nice enough. There weren't end suite bathrooms which would have been nice. Only stayed 1 night and it worked well for that.
This place has an excellent atmosphere. The hostel is near the bus station which is a plus. A walk to the beach will take 10 to 15 minutes, and to town 20 to 25 minutes. But its all nearby and most of the time you will be with others form the hostel because its a social place. Daytrips are organized almost every day. Supermarket is around the corner so go and buy breakfast and eat outside on the porch of the hostel. Loved it there, and will be back.
Common area lots of mosquito; wifi doesn't work. My rating is based on short time I was there. They're so disorganized that they get overbooked. Happened to me, so they moved me to an apartment run by local lady. I met many people in the other place who were overruns of WildFig, even after 3-4 days. This never ever happened to me before in all the hostels that I've stayed in around thr world/
This has been one of my favourite hostels on my five month trip. The location is a bit out of town, but it is only a short walk from the main bus station. Town is about half an hour walk away. All facilities were clean and kitchen well equipped. The common area is outside under the patio which is nice because it is really hot! There is also a bar and the staff are great. Generally just a great atmosphere.
Loved this hostel, kitchen was amazing and staff and owners were friendly. Room had a lot of bugs and Mosquitos and quite a bit out if town but we needed a place to relax after a big few days. Would recommend!
Awesome people there, met a good bunch of other travellers. Clean and a big kitchen and lounge area. Only bad thing was it was about a 20-30min walk from the old town, but it's right near some cliffs you can jump into the sea, so makes up for it!
Great Hostel, you can see that it's managed by former travellers
It is a good place to stay and meet other people, it is kind of expensive though knowing that they don't even give you a towel and basically you need to pay for everything extra. People were very nice, easy going and I had a great time there
