    Great hostel. This is a good place for solo travelers, and they have a tour booth in the same location which makes it easy to book tours.

    Good stay with drift inn at sandbar. Close to beach, town and supermarket. Kitchen was at owners house and had to be scheduled, but was decent. Free water refill. Salt water in bathroom-tap and shower, and showerhead could use a replacement. All in all we had a very good stay here.

    Clean, nicely equipped hostel with comfy beds with good air conditioning and private space (with curtain, light etc). Plenty of bathrooms to go round. Small pool good for dipping your feet in but not swimming. Good selection of food and drink at the bar.

    Not great, but your only real option in San Pedro. I’ve stayed at 30+ hostels and expect a certain quality for something with an average of over 9. This wasn’t it, but was livable for a few nights. Floors in the rooms were disgusting all the time. The trash in the sink area wasn’t emptied for 3 days. It also wasn’t very socialable, but that could be my timing. But there is AC and the location is good. So just know what you’re getting.

    Very Good

    Beds had curtains for privacy, a lamp and power outlet each. There were lockers in the room and the air con was on all the time (so you could nap whenever you needed). The shower was below average. I do not recommend the sandbar attached to the drift inn. I and some other females from my room were harassed by men at the bar which was not only allowed by the staff behind the bar, they ignored me when trying to order food. Also they give you a wrist band at hostel, don’t wear it around town.
