    I loved this hostel! It’s nestled in the trees and had such good vibes the whole couple of days I was there. Everyone that stayed there was welcoming and friendly. A beautiful little path from the hostel takes you through the trees to the main road where you can walk to beaches and town. The pool is fabulous and there were three guitars in this hostel which is always a huge bonus for me as I can’t travel with mine! I would definitely stay here again.

    Had such a great stay here. This is such a good hostel to stay at as a solo traveller, as it’s so social and they have a lot going on - everyone was so lovely and the location couldn’t be better! It also has a pool and jacuzzi, which is a bonus :) will definitely be back!

    Charming hostel in the forest and just a few minutes walk to a great beach. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. Kitchen is a bit small for the number of guests on site. They don’t hide the fact that it’s a place to party, so be thoroughly prepared for that.

    Potentially a really great hostel. However due mostly to a lack of organisation we didn’t enjoy our stay as much as we could have. The office has very limited opening hours meaning that we never spoke to/saw a member of staff until checking out the next day. Due to this we were not informed where the bathrooms were as there was construction work going on meaning the only bathroom we found didn’t have working sinks. Rooms are small and smelt quite damp.
