    Great amenities: big pool with rope swings, bar with excellent entertainment, swings and hammocks everywhere and over the river that runs through it. The food from the bar was good, the green curry was our favorite. Breakfast is included daily. Hostel is at the top of the hill which some cars cannot reach but was not a difficult walk for us even with large backpacks. If you are showing up late they would appreciate a call, they called several times to confirm. Bring bug spray, you'll need it.

    Rio Elemento was a gorgeous hostel! So many activities to do, I wish we had stayed longer. The breakfast pancakes were delicious. The only recommendation would be to adjust the cabinets in the room so a luggage lock could be used to lock them.

    The hostel is very nice, staff is friendly, some were a bit strange in what they said to us. The rooms were good and clean, bathrooms too.the included breakfast is not very good but I don’t wanna complain since it’s free. You can also purchase other options of breakfast. The pool and the hammocks are awesome.

    hammocks, though cheaper than a dorm, were effectively in a hallway so no privacy or relief from lights/noise of others in the hostel.

    Good hostel especially for the price. Great pool and bar with plenty of opportunity to meet other travellers. Only one shower for each sex so that meant there could be delays getting refreshed. Great location though right in the centre of Minca and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hammocks were also very comfortable. I’d recommend.

    This hostel is gorgeous I just wished there was more of an atmosphere. Amazing pool and bar but not really anyone to chat to which was a bummer. Definitely would be an amazing hostel with a big group of people. I wouldn’t recommend coming here alone.

    We were recommended this hostel but were underwhelmed in all aspects. The dorm rooms are very dated, especially the bathrooms, the toilet hardly flushed. The cleanliness was below normal hostel expectations. Has a nice pool/deck area. However Wouldn’t recommend.
