    The owner was very nice and super accommodating. Was helpful with anything that you wanted organised and always there for a chat. The other staff were also very friendly. Clean rooms. Great location with only a $1 water taxi to the main land of Isla Colon

    Had a really great stay here! Everyone was super nice and helpful. We ate at the restaurant daily and the food was amazing! Especially the Pad Thai was delicious. We feared filthy Friday, because we thought we wouldn't be able to sleep, but the music stopped quite early so we were positively surprised. Would totally stay here again :-)

    It was quiet while I was there but still has good atmosphere. The staff are lovely. Ideal that you can drink/sunbathe/swim off the deck and it’s easy to get a 1minute water taxi to the main island. Recommend!

    Such a fun hostel with a good crowd of people! It’s good value for money, taxi boat was only 1 dollar at any time from the main island. Did see 1 cockroach in our room, and the bathrooms did make the corridor smell like wee, but good breakfasts and cheap beers so was still happy.

    I stayed at aqua lounge for 2 nights and had a great time! It was clean and during filthy Friday there was a security guard for our dorm room. The one thing that I didn’t like is that they had no kitchen for the travellers or much storage for your stuff. I would recommend it for a short stay!

    The only good thing about this hostel is the cooks. Staff made us pay for water. Not a party hostel aside from the Filthy Friday bash, it’s dead otherwise. The bathrooms are so dirty you have to hold your breath as to not smell the stench. Saw coachoaches and rats running around since it’s on the water and it’s an open area. The wifi is non existant, had to go to main island for a decent one. The passport policy is probably illegal considering they already have our credit card info.

    I was very unhappy at this hostel. When I was checking in they asked to keep my passport or a $100 deposit which surprised me because it was not indicated here. Also, this hostel is as indicated is located on another island so you have to add extra 3-4 $ for going to the other island. In summary Pros -Free coffee, tea, and pancakes in the morning -There was a security guard Cons - Asking for a deposit or a passport without indicating on here. - I felt I was staying in a bar that has dorms
