    Such a good place 😁 the staff was really nice, and they are really great guitar players so it's nice to just sit and listen to them. Easy to meet people at this hostel but also good for relaxing, far enough away from town that it's quiet but not too far.

    Great atmosphere and location. The place was very clean and better than the pictures make it appear. Our room had a ceiling fan and an oscillating fan which was great. A nice hostel for a good value :)

    stayed here for four nights and was super lovely! The guys working here were great fun, always up for a laugh and good chance to practice my spanish (they were very understanding at how s***t i was). nice communal areas and isn’t such a. big hostel so you can meet people pretty easily. I’d say if there’s not that many people staying though it would be a lot more mellow. I met such a lovely group who I did most things with together. Would recommend if you’re looking for a chilled out good time!

    A cute small hostel just a few minutes from the Main Street. Offer everything you need such as bikes, snorkels and laundry and other transport services. Stayed in 6 person dorm and found it way too small and quite stuffy and stinky at night. Also one bathroom for the two upstairs dorms aren’t enough

    I’d say it’s a pretty average hostel. It’s nothing very special but no complaints either. It’s on a quiet backstreet but still quite close to the main street, so the location is very good. Met some nice people there too.

    During our stay the hostel was run by volunteers, which was pretty bad. When we arrived the entire place was a mess (they cleaned it up a bit the next day)the staff was unmotivated and not particularly helpful (that improved towards the end of our stay), and some guests were drinking and playing extremely loud music until 3am in the yard (at which time I told them to shut it down). Our room was... Fun. Nice bed, 360° view, trap door to get in - there are only 2 showers for a lot of people.
