    This was my first experience at a hostel and it will certainly not be my last. This hostel blew me and my friend anyway and we couldn’t have had a better time. No complaints from either of us! Staff was great and so was the whole experience!

    This place is an incredible experience. You’re here for the location, the people, and the overall community feel. Yes, it’s more beach shack than resort; but for the price, it’s absolutely worth it. We met amazing people and our stay here is an experience I won’t ever forget. We’ll be back soon!

    Absolutely love the vibe of this hostel. Definitely a laid back/party vibe literally steps from the ocean. I stayed in the all female dorm. the shower didn't totally turn off, but who cares about aging facilities when the location is perfect, staff is nice, and I felt safe as a solo female traveler? Super great, will return.

    This is a fabulous place for your vacations, a truly community and the atmosphere is unparalleled! Surely you'll make many new friends there. It's the perfect location, just few steps to the beach. On Sunday night there's a community barbecue sponsored by the administration (free food :), everybody attends and it turns into a big party. Breakfast can be improved and the facility needs a serious upgrade, I spotted some issues and were immediately corrected. Parking made my staying better.

    I loved the location and dorm like atmosphere. It was defiantly relaxing and never boring...the hostel was helpful staff was nice but they had a lot of new volunteers that were still learning the job. The place was not up to covid standards. I brought my own sanitation wipes and cleaning supplies..the place had dust and grime that looked at least a year old..i left with a case of athletes foot even after using flip flops in the shower..showers were gross.

    Good hostel just make sure you lock your stuff up. I caught one of the guest in possession of some of my jewelry. After I brought it to the attention of the staff I was notified this guest is close friends with the owner and that I would have to leave. Probably won’t be staying here or any ITh location for that matter.
