    I liked dreamer! It was really nice and had a good atmosphere. Dorms are clean and staff was helpful. I felt very safe. The food wasn’t very good though.

    Fun place to relax for a couple of days. They had a yoga class every morning and a salsa dancing lesson in the evening while I was there. The fish tacos were amazing!

    Pros - great food, big bar, nice pool, and it’s a popular place. Cons - the people staying there were pretty antisocial and cliquey. It was mostly 18 year old obnoxious brits, Israelis who never talked to anyone, and a handful of older people (50s+) staying there. Also, I was on a top bunk and it felt like it was going to collapse every time I climbed it (I’m not a big person). They also need another shared or mens bathroom. There is only one that men can use, and it’s unisex so always full.

    The woman in the reception did "mistake" twice about the sum price of our orders at the end check out. If I wouldnt check I would pay more than I need. Hostel is nice. The price of the food is a little bit expensive.

    Beach life is easy to enjoy from Dreamer Hostel. Hostel is definitely a party hostel. Hostel is big so connections can be hard to make with other people. The common areas are big and nice, especially the pool area.

    Some staff aren't really friendly, extended the stay only to be woken up and get kicked out because they forgot to extend and it was fully booked, other than that great overall location for the hostel and decent food, service is slow though.

    No dreaming going on here. Loud music all night. No privacy curtains. Weird roommates looking in my bed and waking me up in the middle of the night. Went to the reception and they did nothing about it. The pool looks like it has never been cleaned. Food is awful. On a positive note, the weather was nice.
