    Great staff. Yummy food. Well located. Our only complaint would be how squeaky the bed was. We stayed in one of the tents (tent #2) and felt the bed made a lot of noise, even just from us turning in our sleep. One can definitely hear a lot from tent to tent. Other than that - everything was quite clean and we had a great stay! Thank you!

    Excellent hostel with brilliant facilities e.g. the pool. I guess being out of season it was a little bit quiet but otherwise all very good.

    The mae at the reception wasn't pura vida so we didn't like much after that, he tried to overcharge us just because we didn't have a booking. Besides that, all cool.
