    We met some amazing fellow travelers here as well as some amazing staff. Bathroom upstairs was without a sink. Location was amazing and staff was always helpful. If you travel for the social aspect, BOOK THE 10 BED DORM. This is where all the social interaction takes place. On our very last morning we experienced an incident with a guest and the staff was very helpful

    The ladies working at this hostel are super nice. If you need anything they can help. The location is in the middle of a lof of restaurants, bars, shops, diving centres,... Nicest part is that it’s a 30 second walk to the beach through a little alley. Rooms are okay, theres mosquito nets, 1 big plug for the dorm. Theres a guard from the evening till the morning so i would say its secure at night as well.

    My partner and I stayed in the ensuite private room and everything was fantastic except for the roosters next door. They would start at 2am and went all day long. If you have really good earplugs you might be ok but they were very loud. Perhaps the owners could request they be moved further back on the property? Other than that the room was great with a nice bed, balcony, sitting area and downstairs bathroom. The staff were not overly friendly but all the basics were met. Location was perfect.

    The dorm is a big open room which is great for fresh air but not great for blocking out people’s noise. Free water. Cheap breakfast. Close to everything. Helpful staff if you want to book tours etc. check out the sardines!

    A nice hostel, very basic, but friendly staff. However I got BED BUGS and staff weren’t very helpful about the situation and offered no form of compensation, as well as denying it. As we had booked a number of tours through them and stayed for several nights I felt they didn’t deal with situation very well!

    No aircon so it gets hot at night. Nice staff and dorm, and chill bamboo terrace to hang out. Cheap breakfast and beer available, and good location. Its a simple hostel though.

    We started 4 nights here in double private room with it's own balcony and hammock which was amazing to chill. Room was tiny, but fan was really powerful which was okey without aircon. I would want to stay in the open dorm room as there is 0 privacy and no space for bags. Staff were not helpful and didn't want to do much at all. Everyday had to ask the either for toilet paper for the general toilets or something else. *** internet was terrible *** I don't think 4 nights are enough to see it all.
