    110% recommend this hostel! The staff really treat you like family and try to include you in everything that’s going on that day/night! I booked 1 night and stayed 3. I first booked a more expensive hostel down the street but prefer it here. Best value for your money! They also offer the cheapest whale whatch package I’ve found! Perfect location right next to a grocery store and walking distance to the beach/restaurants. They also have a washing machine which every backpacker needs! Thanks guys!

    Really quiet when we visited. Staff were relatively friendly but nothing amazing. Room was decent size and had a small balcony which was nice. Was the low Season so guess that's the reason it was so quiet.

    The hostel was empty when we arrived. The washroom was dirty and the floor aswell. The water pressure was bad.. They have a backyard but you cant really chill there since there is nothing to sit on.. I gave my clothes to wash and it came back cleanish but my white stuff turned pink.. Once we told them to clean the washroom they did.. I think the atmosphere could have been better if there were other people staying in the hostel!

    Room was too hot. Sheets were stained and ripped. There were no towels provided. They overcharged us on the last day. We didn't feel comfortable asking them for help. They were always high and hungover. There was alot of partying going on and alot of noise late into the night. Random visitors walked into our room go use the bathroom. Others attempted to enter our room. There was knocking on the window late at night by drunk people/other guests.

    As a female staying at this hostel with two other female friends we felt extremely uncomfortable and were constantly harassed by the men here. There is a large group of men who live at the hostel and others who join at night to party every night, they pressure the women to join them and do not respect any boundaries in terms of touching, asking **and predatory questions, and making unwanted advances even after being told to stop.

    Not impressed, and decided to move out after one night. I assume the two power cuts were out of their control, possibly the water outage too. But the dirty sheets, stained towells, toilet where you have to out your hand inside the tank to flush it, shower that only works if you squeeze kink in the tube the whole time, dirty kitchen... these could all easily be fixed with a little investment and staff taking some pride in their work.

    I didnt stay there...On my arrival, a number of people laid on the floor in the reception room in various state of passed-out, hardly moving and looking alarming... someone came out to check with me and when I said that I had a reservation, he just wanst sure who I was... since he wasnt in the state to check me in, he got some overwhelmed girl to do it but unsuccessful... she clearly wasnt sober... the room was a mess and she failed to find volunteers to clean it... wi-fi was off...
