    Great hostel in a perfect location. 3 min walk from all the action in town. 1 minute walk from the beach. Karen was a great host. I was there for taco night cooked by the staff for $5 it was easily one of the best meals I had on my South America trip.

    There are no common rooms for people to sit together so end up not meeting a lot of people. Very quiet hostel not much going on but nice rooms just a shame about the lack of people and no common areas together.
