    What a place, take me back! Stella, Nastacia, Rodrigo and the whole team are incredibly fun, nice and helpful, you couldn't ask for better people. The view from the hostel is unlike anything I've ever seen and is perfect to wake up to and the location is perfect. What a fun 5 days, thanks you all so much. I'd recommend this place as the ideal place to spend anything from a week onwards, but beware... you won't want to leave!

    Staff was fabulous! Kitchen was nice; only small problem was that the top room was a mosquito trap but I’m not sure how they could do anything different about that - also the upstairs door needs to be redone because it would blow open at night

    Be there if u look for a good location, reasonable price and (just) friendly staff. But also be Ready to deal with disgusting smell come from the toilet. The worst part is NON-guest coming freely at this hostel. In deed, they every single night made a lot of noise in the kitchen(bar) which is just next your room. The host gives welcome to sell more beers but for Guests who already paid the night were not really Cool. To sum up, good location but bad quality.

    Some of the staff were very nice and helpful and some did not even say hello when they open the Door. There is only two showers an two toilets for everone in the hostel. The breakfast included in the price consists of fruit and plain coffe with no milk. No bread. Just fruit and coffe. The kitchen and the toilets are usually clean but not the rest of the places. The location is great. Just next to the city center. And one minute walk fromThe beach next to the hostel is very crowded but the
