    Great hostel in a perfect location! I only intended to stay here 4 nights, but now I've been here 28 nights! Dock and swimming area is serene, and beautiful. Rooms are clean. Staff is great! Restaurant and bar down below, and a great chill area in the back. I've met so many great people here too! Such an amazing hostel!

    Nice place, I made a lot of friends during my 4 nights here. The staff was great, the lady from Fort Collins (cant remember her name) helped me out with a lot of great logistics for planning the second leg of my trip (Guatemala). The Food was good - chicken wings and fried shrimp were bomb. I do wish the kitchen was a bit more substantial so that I could make more of my own food / breakfasts. All in all this place is solid and I don't think you'll find a better hostel in San Pedro

    This place should not be called a hostel because their kitchen facilities are almost non existent, the microwave was broken and there was no stove to cook or even boil water. No dishes or even hardly any cutlery. There was only 1 fridge for all the guests and it was very dirty. This place tries to discourage backpackers from cooking for themselves since they operate a restaurant and a bar and so they want you to buy their expensive food, which is unfair to anyone travelling on a low budget!
