    Really nice and helpful owner, lockers and A/C in rooms, good beds, kitchen to use with free water, hot shower, nice simple breakfast, close to the Lagoon, 15 minutes walk to the restaurants area, many travelers but lack of atmosphere - in total would recommend :)

    The staff are really nice people and the hostel is simple but clean and organized. Breakfast is a nice touch. The only problem I had was the AC on all night and it actually gets cold in the room. I would ask the staff for the remote control so you can turn it off at night if it’s too much :)

    Great place on walking distance from a place by the water where you can swim and one of the best local Mexican restaurants i've ever been to. If you stay here go to taqueria Doña Mary and try the sope's and the tortas! The staff of the hostel was very friendly and helpful with information. We stayed in the deluxe double and the bed was huuuge and very comfortable.

    I loved this little hostel it was a nice place to stay for two nights. The breakfast was filling (toast and 3 different fruits) and the beds were comfy and clean. Shower water could have been a bit warmer but was ok... The only reason i wouldnt stay here again is because of the bad wifi! I couldnt even use it to book my onward travel so it was a bit problematic. Other than that I would definitely recommend.

    Very Good

    Super beautiful place, nice and super chill atmosphere. I don't consider myself picky with hostels, and I did have a good time here. However, everyone in the hostel - including staff - shared two bathrooms, with a super weak shower and almost always a warm toiletseat. Staff mostly did not give one f***, never smiling, talking or socializing, just watching netflix, which is 100% their choice, but takes a bit of the hostel-charm out, when you can barely force a "hi" out of them.

    The vibe and place are nice however our doom room was on the road with the door always open and only some of the lockers actually fit a padlock meaning you couldn’t use them. The staff were friendly and had lots of suggestions of things to do and the breakfast was nice (toast and fruit).

    Met nice people and the volunteer was nice but the hob was dangerous and the shower in the dorm bathroom was FULL of chunks of hair
