    Absolutely adore this hostel, booked one night and ended up staying 5. It has a great location right beside the main bus stop. Chill common area. Yolanda was amazing, incredibly nice and very helpful, gave great recommendations of what to do around the city, and was great to just talk to. Felt like home when I was there, breakfast every morning she cooked was amazing. I would 11/10 stay again.

    Jolanda was a fantastic host. Always working really hard to ensure you enjoy your stay and always willing to help you with anything you need. She also made a great breakfast every morning. As well as being great company. I could not recommend staying here more. Also a bonus that many of the buses depart right outside the door!

    Cold shower during cold season, a broken mirror in the room, a Hostel fee misunderstanding ( reservation fee was not deducted at first and we had to ask the receptionist to check the website. The receptionist was very honest and friendly, just a small mistake which was taken cared of immediately ) , untidy kitchen are the only problems we had.

    The most amazing woman runs this hostel! We arrived at 3am to find that she’d stayed up to welcome us at such a crazy hour. Then when we woke up she cooked everyone eggs with toast, fruit, cheese and jams for breakfast- completely free! It’s just a short walk to the beach and lots of bars and restaurants. The place was kept clean and tidy and there was a lovely laid-back atmosphere with a great chill out spot on the balcony outside. Couldn’t be happier with Dolphin Hostel, absolutely amazing! :)
