    Super clean, super friendly and helpful staff. Beds and sleeping arrangements are comfortable. Not as many "social" activities that I've experienced at other hostels around the world but this covid thing has put a wrench in that so under normal conditions, adding in a fun happy hour or group night out would be my only request to add to the experience. I've already booked a second stay so that says something!

    Great place to stay while traveling along with great staff. Only part that I didn't like was leaving the place ☹️. Worth the price. Overall, pleasant experience and would stay there again, in the near future. -Dominique

    The hostel is ideally located, extremely close to the beach, and much of the nightlife in the area. It was also arranged to have the best sleep I have had in a hostel in a long time, despite there being 14 person rooms, each bed had individual curtains as well as two outlets and a bed light. The room was kept at an ideal temperature for sleeping in addition to it being dark and quiet. Lastly, all of the staff were great, "RayRay" in particular was helpful with virtually everything (except cards)
