    Wilson and Isaia were such great help booking activities/tours and suggested good restaurants. They’re super friendly and they love when guests stay an extra day! I ended up staying an extra day, wish I could have booked my whole week there! Place is clean and kitchen has everything you need so you don’t spend too much eating out. Great location too, it’s a minute walk from the beach and there are restaurants right next door/across the street. Tons of great bars around.

    My stay here was so much fun. This was my first time staying in a hostel and Wilson made it the best time. He gave recommendations, accommodated our whole group, and made sure we were having fun. He even gave us all hugs when we left! The staff was all friendly (and all spoke great English), great proximity to the beach (3 minute walk), and I definitely felt safe. Would highly recommend.

    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.

    We were greeted and welcomed in so well when we arrived and randomly got upgraded to a private room which was a nice treat. Wilson really is what they say in the comments - an absolute legend. The other staff members were also very friendly. We rented our surfboards here too. The only downside is there's not enough space to hangout in apart from the pool area.

    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.
