    when we were there, march 19, the hostel was just opened. It was still in the stage of improving. The staff is super nice and they have a lot of plans for the place. I mean the house is a villa, it has a huge potential.

    The space was really unique, with a lot of the original structure remaining from when it was a home. It has a cool old-timey touch, with long carpeted hallways and a sitting areas. My only complaint is that the showers were kind of weird- they were downstairs in a separate building in the courtyard, and they were coed. The wifi isn't super great either, and often does not reach the rooms past the first floor. But it was a good, clean, safe place to stay, and good value for the money.

    In an inconvenient location so uber is necessary if you want to go out to eat or get groceries. Patio is great, but indoor eating area could be improved. Staff are great and super friendly!

    The Island Vibe hostel is a good hostel. The rooms are nice and the common areas are pretty good as well. There is no breakfast included, but they have a couple of good options you can purchase. WiFi cut out every once in a while and the location of the hostel is not the best. Other than that I had a great stay.

    Really nice house but for a new hostel we were a bit surprised that there were only 2 plugs in our 6 bed dorm with no lockers. Great bathroom but the kitchen is really small, we wonder how this will work out when hostel will be full.

    This hostel is beautiful. They offer a free walking tour of the city which is very nice, but you really have to drive to much of the things you would do solo. The WiFi only works in the common areas, not the dorms. The staff is so helpful and kind and makes it all worth it.

    Ok hostel, nice building but it is definitely not purpose built for being a hostel. Small kitchen, and I was in a dorm that only had one plug outlet for all sharers which needs to get addressed. Staff were helpful.

    The manager is super nice and helpful. Re: cleanliness I watched one of the ppl cleaning drink out of a glass and then put it in drying rack w/out washing it which doesn’t inspire confidence. There were a bunch of ppl staying for a training program who made a lot of noise at 5am (though staff said they had already been asked not to) - atmosphere might be better in summer backpacker season. Kitchen is disconnected and narrow, only one toilet. Near bus station but not in a great area otherwise.
