    Don't book 4 bed dorm, tiny tiny rooms! We moved to a spacious 8 bed which was great. Bar and pool area can be loud, pool is small and not many seats. There's seats upstairs but not enough space to relax overall. Amazing breakfast. They partner with pizza picos and recommend it, we went there but had bad experience. 45 minutes waiting for margarita which we cancelled, the manager said they went to shops on other side of town to buy tomatoes which is why it took so long

    Great location, fantastic staff and a good free breakfast. However anyone can walk in through the bar and you have to specifically ask for a room key. I met some great people but it wasn’t the most sociable.

    La zona es muy bonita y hay muchos restaurantes cerca. El personal del hostel es amable, es limpio, las habitaciones tienen aire acondicionado y ventilador de techo. Tienes luz y conexión eléctrica en tu cama lo cuál es muy bueno. Hay lockers pequeños dentro de la habitación. Tiene desayuno incluído. El hostel es tranquilo y puedes descansar. En general es bueno.

    I thought it was a really big disadvantage that the doors of the rooms couldn’t be locked. This meant that everyone could basically just walk in if they wanted to. Pros: the breakfast was good and the pool was nice. Atmosphere was a bit party-ish but alright.

    Do not book the 4 person room. My friend and I arrived and 2 people were there already and it wasn’t possible for us to all fit in the room with the bags in. The staff said she couldn’t do anything about it and didn’t even offer us an apology or try to rectify the problem and said they were full so we ended up moving hostel and losing our deposit. It was a shame as it looked like a nice hostel with a good vibe but the staff and room size ruined it for us.

    Had room 17, hostel his between two fast passing streets busy on rush hours, so at 5 am i had to put plugs on to go bk to sleep. Matress seams old and was sliding on the sheets like on a baby crib.they name there rooms DELUXE but its more like economique frankly. The mans bath and shower stinks bad like old grime stock in tiles grout (Just like salina's in Puerto Viejo) The pool had buttom covered of white flakes and dirt, few pebbles so wasnt vaccum for a while. Fridge not keeping food cold.
