    Amazing oasis, beautiful garden, nice & quiet, not a party place but you still meet a lot of people, Close to everything you need, Ronnie & Pancho are great people and take care of this place beautifully. Highly recommended.

    Really tranquil part of town, well maintained - the groundskeeper Ronny is fantastic - very helpful staff. Considering it has things like a jacuzzi, a pool volleyball net, and kitchen and grill, it's really a fantastic deal price-wise. I was a little concerned with not having A/C before arriving, but they have some fans in the room that keep you perfectly cool. I'll definitely be coming back!

    Great place if you are a couple! It’s clean, very green, nice pool and about 4 blocks from downtown! I was a solo traveler and found the social scene not existent. Everyone there was with a partner or with family. Plenty of hammocks to enjoy. Biggest issue is that they lock the hostel at night with a chain and a lock which makes it very safe to keep people out but a fire hazard in case you are trying to leave the hostel in em! The security took 5 min to come to the gate when I was there at 1am.

    Owner wasn’t friendly or accommodating upon arrival. Difficult check-in & communication. Pool is nice, rooms are okay. Most guests were there for Spanish school together, so not the typical hostel atmosphere of travellers. Be aware that the owners are unwilling to refund guests for nights not stayed, besides “free stay next time”. We left early (due to the COVID-19 emergency) and consistent with check-in, staff were very difficult and not friendly.
