    I totally loved this place, I had the chance to meet really good people, the staff was friendly and willing to help at all the time. Comfortable bedrooms private bathrooms and a wifi network. The night time was even better, good music, good vibes and amazing food! All of this for a fair cost.

    I stayed at Iguana hostel, and that was a really good experience. There you can find an excellent atmosphere, very nice people from around the world, you can share culture, experiences and language. You can chill out and your things are safe, it has an excellent staff. I would recommend it because there you can rest, you are allowed to use the kitchen and the kitchen is always clean, you can also use the refrigerator. I love the days I had back in there.

    Friendliest staff I have even encountered! Great location close to the beach and downtown but not so close that you can't sleep. Rooms were ok but had AC and they cleaned every day.

    Close to the beach, nice staff! Beds were clean, bathroom and kitchen more “hostel-clean”. AC worked, which was necessary.

    Location is slightly out of the main town, so this hostel is a lot quieter. However, the hostel itself was dead, even at the weekend, with no atmosphere whatsoever.

    First of all, we were almost the only ones staying at the hostel so the hostel atmosphere was boring and dead. It is not a party hostel at all. There is no common room/area. Second, everything was dirty. The beds, the ceiling was covered with spider webs. The bathrooms smelled really bad and were extremely dirty. The hot water did not work. The couches in the hostel were was covered by dust and other stuff. Third, we learned that most of reviews were fake and/or really old so none of them worked

    Expensive private rooms with smelly/dirty bathrooms. We asked for soap and they told us to go buy it. Weird, unfriendly, unhelpful staff, also the hostel advertises surf board rentals then they were all 'broken' which according to 1 disgruntled staff member has been true for several weeks. The breakfast was OK and the location is pretty good.
