    I arrived to this hostel with only wet and smelly clothes (due to horrendous weather). The owner of the hostel was sooo accommodating. She offered me some of her own clothes (which I refused, but still, wow) and made sure my laundry was done that day. Really great vibes here. There is a pretty big kitchen and restaurants and shops walking distance, in either direction. This hostel is not in the touristy part of the Island so it is great if you are looking for some calm down time.

    What a great vibe Laura has created! The layout of the house and warm personalities really do capture the feeling of hospitality and closeness associated with being part of a family. Does not disappoint! (Also go to the pizza place down the street!)

    We really enjoyed our stay here! The best way to describe it is almost like going to your grandmas house - warm and cozy, relaxing and very comfortable. Staff were awesome and very helpful!! Location is great - very easy to get a cab quickly. The one downside that we didn’t love is when we booked we booked the 5 person dorm and it turns out that there are two 5 person dorms connected and only 1 shared bathroom for all 10 beds. Not super convenient but otherwise it’s a great place to stay!

    We were there only one night but would have stayed longer if our flight wasn't already booked. Easy to get to (we walked from the little corn dock but a taxi would only be about $4 - only $2 or 3 from the airport). Although a little pricey, the private room was really nice, large, big window you could hear wildlife outside. Easy to walk to markets or restaurants. Well equipped kitchen, beer and water for sale, coffee and breakfast for sale in the morning. We made our own to save $.

    Great place to establish your base for exploring Big Corn! The hostel is specious and clean, and the staff friendly. The WiFi wasn't always stable when I was there but that is actually a good incentive to put the smartphone away and go out. I found the price of the rental bikes (10 USD per day) a bit steep so decided against it in the end, but taxis, the local bus and your feet will basically bring you wherever you want.

    Very Good

    This place is very cute, and the couple running it are really lovely people. They are very welcoming and very helpful. They will answer every question you have and can provide recommendations for food and activities around the island. The hammocks in the garden are a great place to relax. In-dorm bathroom is always a plus. Cons: the wi-fi is just terrible, and the kitchen is not great in terms of organization and equipment.
