    Very nice place with friendly staff and lot of activities to do daily. But the dorms we were staying at had very limited Wi-Fi signal for when I wanted to do my work in the night. The washrooms let rain water in which makes you soaked if you want to use it when it rains. Other than that it's a very party type of hostel, if this is the vibe you want. It would be perfect for you. For those like me who like a relatively quiet night in its 50/50. But I still recommend staying here for top notch vol

    Loved my time here, volcano boarding was a crazy experience and the room so cheap (even the aircon rooms are great value). I think a great group of people here is definitely important though, we went to a local baseball game and visited the beach, had a BBQ with some fish two lads caught that morning. Great experience if you do plenty of stuff.

    This hostel is a massive party hostel and all the staff like to drink as well. The only problem we had was if you wanted to cook the kitchen wasn’t really equipped with what you need and was abit dirty. Apart from that rooms are basic lockers under the bed and outside of rooms. Comfy beds sometimes got abit hot but just sleep without the blanket and your good

    Fulfills basic backpacking needs. Anyone can go to the bar and back into the guest hangout areas, so I made sure to lock my stuff up. My room felt decently safe since there was 11 people. I think they said they had AC, but I never felt it. Pretty basic hostel, but worth the price and fun environment. I would stay again.

    It was a really dirty hostel with no security. I found dirty underwear next to my bed after they cleaned the room and I was the only one in the room. No hot water and the shared mirror was so dirty you couldn't even see yourself in it. I would recommend looking elsewhere but I would recommend booking your Cerro Negro tour with Big Foot because Santa, the guide, was great.

    Like sleeping in an early 2000s nightclub, only less fun and smells a tonne worse... Avoid at all costs.
