    Great place to stay if you want to do the volcano boarding - they do a small party with drinks included after :) The dorm stinks a bit and beds are not really comfortable. The hostel itself is cool, I would stay again.

    A party hostel, but great if you want to do the volcano boarding. It’s nice to have a hostel in bloody hot Leon where you can cool down - although in the mini - pool. No kitchen which is a bummer. The rooms where extremely hot, and not everyone had a fan.

    The worst hostel we’ve stayed in, ever! The rooms were so hot and crammed, there were mice/rats crawling behind the sofa in the social area. I walked into one of the toilets to find actual human faeces up the WALL!! Was very loud all night and just an overall dirty place, they also have a sign saying free drink if you leave a good review, so that’s always a red flag. We’re not normally too fussy with hostels but this really was horrible.

    Incredibly hot like sleeping in a sauna. Dorms are off the bar where they play loud music with base until 2.30AM and starting again at 7.30AM. Not secure at all and not helpful staff
