Really nice hostel with friendly staff. Great free food and good wifi service ($1 a day). Great setup and volunteering available.


The hostel owner was warm and inviting. He picked us up from the airport and was extremely patient as we straightened out some Visa issues with immigration officials. Breakfast and dinner was served each day, and the meals were excellent. The hostel is clean and safe, although it is a located out of the center of town. Rides around town were always easy to set up though, so the location shouldn't be a concern. Neither bad nor good, but lots of people use this hostel for long term stays.


Really friendly, nice food with evening meal included, easygoing. We liked the tortoises! Having said this, it didn't seem like they'd received the booking from hostel world when we arrived, so it might be better to contact them directly after booking.
