    Probably the Best Hostel I have ever been to. Very modern and chic, cultural and unique. The energy and vibe makes you feel at home and relaxed. Mother and daughter duo in the front office were the cherry on top. Such a joy to be around. Smiles and laughter is all you see and hear inside. Truly an unforgettable experience. Bathrooms were clean, showers were clean, rooms to good to be true, shared spaces were a luxury and the backyard was breathtaking with all the colorful flowers. Loved it! 5*

    A nice modern hostel. Breakfast was excellent (really good coffee) and the staff was very helpful in helping me plan the rest of my costa trip up north. The only negative is that the location is not very central, but it is easy and relatively cheap to get around by uber. Also it’s relatively accessible from the airport by public bus if you are willing to walk about about a mile once in town. Overall a great place to spend a night as a jumping off point for your trip.

    Loved it! Spacious shower, spacious lounges! Nice breakfast with pancakes, eggs, beans, and fruits. Really nice terrace with beautiful greens and flowers! The bed is a pod style with a curtain that has more than two plugs to charge your phone and laptop. Also I found it convenient to have hooks inside the pod where you can hang your towel and jacket! The staff (forgot her name) was very nice and helpful! It's located in a and safe location within only two blocks to the super market.
