    This is a really lovely hostel! The common spaces are great for chilling out and the breakfast was also really good. Beds all had power outlets and reading lights and the bathrooms were big, modern and clean. Staff were also great and offered to book a huge variety of day trips and tours. Stayed an extra night.

    Fabulous

    A pleasant experience but nothing extraordinary. The facilities were good, as was the breakfast - a nice selection of fresh fruits, coffee, eggs, etc. When I went the atmosphere was lacking a bit as there didn’t seem to be a clear communal area. To be honest I expected a bit more given the high star reviews and all the awards plastered over the reception wall. The hostel is also located a bit further out of town / away from the main strip.

    Pleasant but overrated hostel. Although it is very charming and looks pretty, the hostel lacks atmosphere and is totally quiet. Breakfast is good but nothing special (it was the same everyday that I was there). The shower functioned poorly in the evenings with only a trickle of hot water. Beds were creaky. The location is also several blocks from the main avenue. This hostel is nice, but I don't think it's worth the high rating it has.
