    Super clean and well maintained! The kitchen is clean, has everything you need and every accessories looked new, which is rare for a hostel! The location is perfect: very close from everything but you don’t hear any noise! no AC but you don’t need it at all! There’s a ceiling fan, an other standing fan AND every beds has its own tiny fan. Hot water and good pressure in the showers. The only thing is that the vibe was very relax and people didn’t really blend. But I guess it could’ve easily!

    Pros - lovely staff, really pretty, big lockers, comfy beds, nice bathrooms, filtered water, nice vibe and met some nice people, great location, kitchen has everything you need Cons - no laundry but you can use the service down the road, not a party hostel but close to bars (Johnny’s bar was great)

    Definitely feel like we made the right choice staying in Pagalu - the place is beautiful, with a wonderfully designed kitchen / living area space, and loads of plants and hammocks to give a real Caribbean vibe. The staff looked after us very well and gave great recommendations, and overall the experience was great. I would highly recommend this hostel if you want the safety of knowing that you can stay somewhere pleasant!

    Yeah great hostel if you’re a couple or past your party days. It is not social at all. But everything else is what you want from a hostel

    Very Good

    It was the second time I stayed at Pagalu. I can't complain about the hostel as it is in a good spot, it's clean and never had any troubles. But.. one day, I passed by the hostel with a friend, she stayed in the hall downstairs, to sit and wait at the table and I went to the room to leave the guitar. A minute after I come back down and see an employee speaking already to my friend to leave the hostel, but in a very rude way!! Surely I will never stay again

    Pros: spacious rooms Outlet near every bed Clean Cons: Rude staff - they asked me to leave the hostel because it was after checkout time (I was just in the reception area on my phone, with my bags in the storage room), and then an employee came and yelled at me why I’m sitting there after I already got permission to stay from the employee. Very bad experience and something that had never happened to me in 8 months of traveling in any hostel. Bathrooms outside the rooms Not a social place

    Nice clean facilities and comfy beds but staff was unapologetically rude on multiple occasions which really bothered me. Luckily there were a few other nice people staying there but the hostel really isn’t social

    0/10. The owner was the rudest, unwelcoming person ever. At check out they told us that we could keep our bags in the luggage room until our bus (3am). But at the middle of the afternoon when we went there to retrieve something, they started to literally yell at us to pick our bags and leave. We said that we need to get something for the fridge and they even accused us of stealing. So if you are considering pagalu please SKIP IT if you want to save yourself from being humiliated by the owner.
