    I loved my stay here so much we came back for another few days! The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the rooms are so clean and the air con means it is very comfortable. There is a lovely pool, hammocks, and shade to relax. There is a nice gym area/ fitness/ yoga studio upstairs to use. Good walking distance to beach and right next to a supermarket. Amazing free coffee all day every day. Love this hostel!

    Would definitely recommend to stay here. Great common area, friendly staff, good vibes. Possibility to party, but quiet after 11:00 so that you can also have an early surf session.

    Super helpful manager who helped me with transport when I cut my visit short. Hostel is in a good location. Dorms could be bigger but whole place seems very well organised. Recommend

    Nice hostel, nice pool, kitchen is ok, nice yoga/gym area with AC, the water pressure in the bathroom was very low, location is ok but not directly in the center, you have to walk up the hill a little bit but it’s maybe 7 min walk to the beach and 15-20 minutes to iguana surf school. The bed was not comfortable at all, we didn’t sleep very good. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay!

    Nice location, helpful staff. The walls were a little thin and there was a slight ant infestation in our bathroom but good value. Pool and hammocks- excellent! Had a nice stay! :)

    This place is pretty good. Clean, staff was great, pool was lovely. Some of the outlets in our room were finicky and didn’t work, but the ones in the common area did. The beds were not the most comfortable.

    I opted in for the full on 'hostel' experience with the bunk bed room. It smelled *SO* terrible in the room I legitimately awoke multiple times a night due to the odor. Small wooden box (broken hinges) for your valuables but need your own lock. Staff clearly thought they were too cool for school making them standoffish and unfriendly. Often no toilet paper in bathroom. Broken bathroom door (seems like someone punched through it?). I ended up actually moving hostels. You get what you pay for.
