    Hands down the most boring hostel I went to on my 2 month trip. The staff are very unhelpful and unfriendly and they don't organise events in the evening. The crowd is very druggy surf which was irritating. Clean rooms and bathrooms though.

    I am unfortunately a bit disappointed by this hotel. The bathrooms were always dirty and the rubbish bins were never emptied so there was toilet paper all over the place. Our dorm room was the hottest I have ever stayed in. There were two fans for 8 beds but one was not really working. No one could sleep. I liked the location, it‘s in SJDS town center but as it‘s a bit up in the hill still quiet.
