    We loved it here, the photos don’t do the place justice it is VERY NICE. The beds are very comfortable, no noise at night, privacy curtain. The restauran serves American food in massive portions. Location is great, access to private dock and beach. Pool area is nice. We extended our stay, all of us were sleeping great and very happy. Only cons - at times the WiFi was a bit dodgy and we didn’t love the music, constantly playing Kesha / Katy Perry / Backstreet Boys cr*p.

    My friend and I both had a bunk in the mixed Toucan dorms. Everything about our stay was perfect. I have been backpacking for about 6 years and stayed in many hostels, but this has got to be one of my favorite. Amazing atmosphere, incredible staff, great food, and awesome tour guides. We fit everything we wanted to and more into our short trip and then ended up staying a couple more days because we just couldn't bear to leave.

    Our first 9+ rating. Great value for money and in a very good location, the private dock and pool is an added bonus. Staff are friendly and there is a lot going on, so socialising is easy. We found cheaper food alternatives elsewhere however, having a restaurant/bar downstairs is handy.

    We had so much fun, the location was good. They have a dock where dive boats came to get us from so no walking. A little bit dated amenities but the AC was perfect. The safe does not work though. Super friendly staff, would stay again.

    The staff was rude any time we asked the question, other than the woman who checked us in. I wish I knew her name. She almost seemed like the owner. Everyone else who sat at the front couldn’t be less interested to lend a hand.
