    Un muy bonito hostal!! Lastima que no cuenta con desayuno incluido. La ubicación está muy bien, se puede acceder a todo caminando, playa, 5ta. av. Todo! El ambiente es un poco apagado, al menos cuando fui no lo hubo. Pero volvería a elegirlo!

    The place is super cute, bartenders are super nice, close to everything but off the main strip. The hours were a bit confusing and I’m still not sure if there was a curfew or if there was supposed to be someone inside to let us out/in at night, but we managed to get in by just slipping a credit card into the lock in the front door. If we could do it, others could too... Overall it’s a fun, nice stay and I would recommend it, just a few weird things. We had a private room and it was very nice.

    Private 4 pax room, no curtains on all windows. Shower was always to cold. And bathroom tiles need a deep steam clean. Rain on the inside because of bad windows. Public spaces of the property looked good. Staff was nice.

    I was there for 20 minutes, and I decided to cancel my stay. I was in the 8 beds dorm, mixed. It was full, and there was no A/C ( they turn it on at 8:30pm only). Someone was coughing a lot. (No COVID protocols. I did not feel safe! I got charge the full price and for the towel too. Completely disappointing.

    8 bed room was really crowded and the bathroom as well as the kitchen were super dirty.. no towels or breakfast were provided for a pretty expensive room. As well as there was no bedside table or anything like that to put phone, glasses etc. Small lockers only in the common area. Location was good tho :)

    First off this place could be nice if there was of a less business oriented design. There's mostly people coming here for scuba certifications so it threw off the mood scuba was taking up the pool. Music blaring and never made it peaceful environment. Staff dint know how to book the beds properly. People waking you up at 12am saying it's there bed when it's not. Finding out there bed was also taken. There's no perks like free coffee and the alcohol was very expensive. Also there is no grill.
