We work very hard to have a very respectful and peaceful vibe without the crazy drunken atmosphere offered at other hostels in the island. Our goal is to make you feel like you own a home in the Caribbean and provide you with great social atmosphere, as well as giving you the opportunity to have a good sleep after a busy day of sightseeing the island, we have a strict quiet time of 11.59 PM, but we apply the 80-20 rule, which means that if 80% of the people staying at the hostel want to stay up partying then we move the quiet time accordingly.

Latest Review

" The hosts Juan and Jennifer were amazing and cared about their travelers. They made an effort to connect the solo travelers and create a harmonious vibe. The hostel was clean and the patrons were respectful of the space and always cleaned up after themselves. We were able to socialize and drink on the front patio and Juan even asked if we had music requests and made us popcorn before he went to sleep haha. The facility itself is modest, but it adds to the island charm. Would recommend! "
