    Great hostel conveniently located in town. Very nice facilities with privacy curtains, charging ports for each bed, and A/C in the dorms. Restaurant below has great food if you don’t feel like venturing out, but there’s also other delicious food options nearby. The pool is a spectacular beach alternative during sargassum season!

    This hostel was great. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was amazing. My only complaint is that the security could be better, I wish the doors to the dorms had a code or a lock- because it is easy for anyone to just walk in. Other than that, I had a really great time here and it's centrally located which is really helpful.

    Great location and beautiful pool and deck. Only thing is anyone could pretty much go in your room, there’s individual lockers though so pretty safe.

    Overall a solid hostel. Affordable bar and definitely some of the better food I've had at a hostel (fajita night is legit). Good atmosphere and super easy to meet people downstairs or by the pool (fully booked when I was there). location is fantastic - really close to the water taxis / restaurants / golf cart rentals. dorm room had solid AC. bathrooms / beds were fine and had storage lockers underneath. would recommend

    Sandbar is a solid hostel choice. The dorms had good A/C. The facilities are in good condition. There isn't a designated workspace though we found a couple areas that were quiet enough to work. The internet was spotty at times but we were able to make it work for our work calls and Netflixing. The staff was fantastic in helping us make arrangements!

    Door to the dorms doesn’t lock so is easy for someone to come in. It is a restaurant before a hostel so the vibe is much different than other hostels. Bathrooms are very hot and humid and smell like the kitchen below. Good price and location

    No kitchen, no AC in the dorm beds, but you will probably be one of only few persons in the hostel so that's good. Location is also very good.
