    Superb

    We really enjoyed our stay here. The dorm, bathrooms and kitchen were all kept clean. The staff were friendly and helpful with booking activities and our transfer to San Jose. The bar/restaurant attached to the hostel was good fun and had a great atmosphere. We’d definitely recommend this hostel

    Superb

    I really enjoyed my stay here due to the amazing atmosphere and all the great people I met. A few things I would like to mention however, was the security. We did not receive a key to our room so we had to leave it unlocked all day long so everyone in our room could access it , also any food we put in the fridge got stolen. The only other inconvenience would be that the WiFi went down for two full days which makes it difficult for people like us who have no data in another country.

    Loved the bar and the diving classes offered here. Staff was great and the rooms were nice but the sound travelled very easily in the rooms if you were close to the pool area. Overall a great stay though! The bar is open to public so I met some great locals.

    This hostel was great, the staff was very nice. However, the only thing that I didn't like about the hostel is that the floor was just a bit dirty, but other than that it was a good choice to pick.

    Connected to a restaurant/bar so the atmosphere was great in the evenings. Played awesome music the whole time we were there and they even had live music with a great duo. Close to the beach. Would definitely stay there again.

    I liked this hostel, because it was clean, they had great facilities (big tv with netflix, nice living room with big couches, and the kitchen was oke equipped). However, my food got stolen multiple times by people in the hostel (although I had tagged all my food /w my name). I notified the hostel about this and they did not help whatsoever. I would have liked them to at least let me check the camera footage so that I could get the chance to confront the person(s) that stole my food.

    Very Good

    The room was basic and clean, but unfortunately the facilities (especially the bathrooms) weren't clean at all. The staff was is friendly and the location is also quite good though. The food in the restaurant was delicious and they often have live music, which I really enjoyed. The rooms are very affordable, so I think if you are a person that can overlook the fact that the facilities aren't clean, I can recommend staying there as I believe that the hostel has a good price performance ratio.

    The bathrooms were really dirty, I think that they clean them just once per day which is not enough for a hostel. The location is very good.

    Great location, amazing space with area in back by pool to relax as well as the restaurant/bar. Our room was standard in terms of two bunk beds with some locker space. There are no hooks on the walls to hang up towels or wet clothes. Our A/C stopped working multiple times throughout our stay. The washrooms are maintained but not spectacular. Near the end of our stay there was a particularly horrid smell coming from the back/side of the hostel and we were very happy to leave at that point.
