    This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. And I have stayed in many. The hostel is safe, sparkling clean, with a nice bar, restaurant, and pool on site. The staff was courteous, friendly, and my room was quiet, with a firm mattress, a desk and chairs, and a locking cabinet. It is centrally located, close to UNESCO sites, the Scuba Lodge for scheduling snorkling, restaurants, and museums. The downside- you will be hustled for change on the streets. I carry an orange or food bar to give.

    I enjoyed my 7-day stay at First Curacao. The hostel is close walking distance to downtown Punda and Otrabanda, which are the UNESCO old city portions of Willemstad. The front desk was helpful in securing me a rental car at a locally fair rate. The hostel has a nice, clean, pretty pool deck with sitting areas upstairs for coffee and reading. The set-up of the hostel is also interesting because it used to be an estate home. Security at the front gate is also solid.

    Friendly staff, chill atmosphere, awesome pool & jacuzzi, chill kitchen & bathrooms. Everything you need is there and the location is also GREAT if you want to explore Willemstad. If you're an explorer on a budget this really is the perfect place.

    Booked initially for 3 nights and extended several times. The ‘hostel bed’ was - due to corona - my own room. Big plus was the pool and the fact that the bar was open even though there was a limited number of guests (corona impacted). It is a short walk to Punda (restaurants, cafes) and you can reach mambo beach with its many beach bars very conveniently by minibuses (1 €, 10 min). I didn’t rent a car, but it is possible to arrange it in the hostel. Staff really nice. Thanks team!!!

    Nice Spot. Relaxed atmosphere. Hostel located a few minutes from downtown area near the bridge. Staff was helpful, place was clean and quiet. Just a place to chill out. People are there and everyone does there own thing. Would recommend if you want to just getaway and relax. Only thing I didn't like was there wasn't hot water for the showers. Other than that, great place.

    We stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed our time. They have a good restaurant next to the pool. The place was cleaned I think about every day. We had a car and were always able to find parking on the property. Plus the security was top notch. We had read some reviews where people said the neighborhood wasn’t very nice but the neighbors are the Swiss consulate and the Central Bank of Curacao. So I think it is a safe area.

    It is a nice hostel in a good location. You can walk in 5 minutes to Punda. If you stay in the hostel you can also use the facilities of the hotel, such as the pool, poolbar and the restaurant. I really liked my stay here! The price for the private room in the hostel was quite high. The employees at the reception did'nt provide me or other travelers with a lot of information about the public transportation or nearby beaches etc. They could'nt answer all my questions.

    Very Good

    To clarify the other reviews: Walk downtown: 10 mins, very bearable. Farther to a beach though. Stray dogs and neighborhood: there are dogs yes, they never even barked at me very skittish. Neighborhood is rundown but safe. Staff: they are very helpful, if you ask. Unprompted they didn't volunteer a lot of info, that's true. Air conditioning: the one in my room was broken and that made it very miserable. They offered to put me in another room or fix it but I left early instead.
