Best hostel i've been to so far. The people make the place, most awesome friendly staff ever.
nice place. friendly staff. There is a big of a rat problem that need addressed, not just at Indigo but at all the bungalows nearby on that side of the beach.
loved it. the staff are so incredibly awesome and helpful. it really is the perfect hostel.
the electric went out while i was eating dinner and the staff gave us some candles which attracted insects who took over the table and forced us to move. considering the area has frequent power outages a backup plan should be established for this scenario. the restaraunt staff was very polite, kind, and apologetic, however they were also extremely understaffed and it took an hour for dinner to be served. the aircon in the room also didn't work. the pool is very nice and the staff are very nice.
I didn't like the fact that the owner kept my passport until departure, as it's illegal and also told me i'm not allowed to rent a scooter. I did however feel that he was looking out for my best interest which was good though. I accidentally checked out a day late and didn't realize it because i was staying somewhere else and lost track of time. the minimum 5 day rule during the full moon party was a pain for me for that reason.
overall it was a good hostel. cheap and affordable. people there were really kind of boring though. nobody really liked to go out and drink after a day or surfing despite 2 dollar beers round the corner. the 11 o clock quiet time is lame as well. if quiet time starts at 11pm and ends at 8am. who needs 9 hours of sleep? staff are very friendly. i would recommend this to someone on a budget, but some with more money should go elsewhere.
