    This is a great location and beautiful garden. It is a short walk to the beach and main strip. The owners are quite friendly and easy to chat with. They are able to help you organize transport and tours quite easily. The kitchen has the best knives I have ever used in a hostel.

    Really great hostel! There are 2 bathrooms in the 6 bed dorm with hot showers. Each bed has a locker, fan, and outlet. Everything is really clean and well maintained. The common areas are great for lounging out it - you can even see iguanas and toucans from there. The hosts are friendly and helpful. As a solo traveler, this was a really great place to meet some awesome people too.

    We loved this hostel. I was in a group of 4 so we were able to make it private for us in a 4 bed. Had our own bathroom and shower in the room. Lockers were a good size. Everyone has a personal fan and light. The common area is awesome with lounging beds and a decent size kitchen and we met awesome people. Its also alking distance to anything you would need. Was for sure one of the best hostels of our trip.

    Nice garden area, very friendly and helpful staff. Two bathrooms in a 6 bed dorm was really good! However, there should be mosquito nets on the beds.

    Great hostel in a lovely garden setting, we saw Toucans, a nesting Hummingbird and huge lizard all within the confines of the hostel garden! Everything is within walking distance. There are shared kitchen facilities, it was nice to have the use of a fridge and the option to cook own meals. We stayed in a shared room, each bed had own lamp, fan and charging area as well as plenty of lockable cabinets, which we found great and really useful!

    Nice location, and grounds were kept well. Rooms were simple, no safe which was a bit of a disappointment as I would have left my valuables there rather than carry them around. Rooms do not have A/C but they do have a fan, it helps a bit but prepare for heavy heat!! Kitchen was dirty, however more so from other guests rather than the hostel itself. Overall, would stay again based on location and their gardens. Cash is a must, credit cards are not accepted.
