    Really good staff! They offered us a private room with 2 beds for the same price as the dorm! The Hostel is really close to the beach and close to the city center! The atmosphere is great, you can put music in a speaker close to the pool. I recommend this hostel!!!

    Anything you need, Wilson is there for you! Huge shout out to this beautiful kind man. Thank you for always rocking your job with a huge smile on your face and making everyone feel happy and groovy! This place is easy to happily waste away your days by the pool or the hammocks. Great place to socialise, rooms are a little hot but tonnes of fans blowing. Awesome security, lockers with cameras directly on them. Beds are comfy!Clean bathrooms and kitchen, although kitchen could use some more things

    Wilson is the man. He will help you with anything you need. The pool area is also a very good vibe.

    Wilson is the nicest and most caring man I've come across in my travels, he made my stay! He goes above and beyond to help you. Location was great, super chilled out, perfect if you want to hang and unwind. It was fairly quite when I was there, so wasn't the best to meet people however I was anyway there to chill and have a few down days. The dorms are a little hot, but there are a lot of fans (also to be expected in the tropics)

    Perfect location (except for the loud hostel and bar next door). Wilson is super friendly, accommodating, & helpful. Accommodations were clean. Some facilities (like the shower heads) could use an upgrade. Primary negative is that hostel guests smoke by the pool and in common areas near 24/7. Because of the open-air construction, the smell of smoke is everywhere, even in the dorm rooms. It’s hard to fully enjoy yourself anywhere within the hostel if you’re sensitive to the smell of smoke.

    We were upgraded to a private room after the receptionist noticed that we are a couple (we had booked a dorm) - without add. costs. The facilities are kept clean (also the pool that is available 24/7). There is not really a social hostel vibe. Everyone does their own thing. Water there is drinkable, but they don’t offer free coffee ;) The kitchen is equipped with everything you need (but no cooking basics like salt, oil..). A receptionist is there 24/7.

    Wasn’t there for long, but a nice easy stay for one night, and as everyone says, Wilson is lovely and welcoming. Only worry is that there wasn’t hand soap in the bathroom.
