    Wow!! What can I say? Our stay was MAGICAL!! We stayed in a room right on the beach. Our door opened to the ocean! The room was beautifully decorated and had gorgeous murals on the walls. The onsite restaurant, Mama Skully's, had incredible meals for us, and the bar came in handy. We rented quads from Flying Pirates, which is located in front of the hostel. What an epic adventure and sooooo conveniently located. All in all, I can't recommend this property and location enough.

    Loved every minute. What's not to're right on the beach, quad rentals, food was really good. Bar staff was very attentive. The atmosphere was really nice. It was a relief to stay away from the other party hostels. I felt very safe staying here. Holy CLEAN. Always staff cleaning and maintaining the property. Reception staff were super friendly and always eager to better your stay. Not to mention, its run by a SEXY PIRATE. Will be booking with Skully's again!!!

    I didn't want to leave this place, I loved it! So peaceful, placed on a small private beach, far from the noise of the town. You're surrounded by nature and you wake up every morning with the sound of birds and monkeys. The rooms are uniquely designed by the owner, 'the pirate', who is really friendly and makes you feel welcome. The dorms are cozy and clean. There is a pool and sunbeds where you can admire the view of the sea. Great staff at the reception and at the bar.. I felt like home!

    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Skully’s hostel is literally on the shore. Traveller’s get relaxing scenery , artistic ambiance ( pirate theme), and professionalism from stuff that was easily rival a beach resort; all for a very affordable price. Definitely the best value for your money regarding accommodation in the island. The hostel’s strategic location provides a quite, relaxing, and secure location away from the busy city center. Bonus: Hostel provides transportation to the city cente

    The owner is pure class. Even gave me a ride home when I left. This place is not for digital nomads. Its secluded, surrounded by nature, with weak internet. Its for surfers and people who want to relax for a few days. My bunk was 14$ a night. I can wake up and get into the ocean in about 15 seconds. When i worked, I was listening to waves crashing all night. The restaurant is simple and good. Beers are cheap: 1.50$. Its valuetown. I loved the staff, the vibes were chill, not hypersocial. A+.

    Good hostel! A bit out of town which is nice and peaceful. 3USD to and from town. Free shuttle bus into town three time’s a day. Staff super friendly and always willing to help. Restaurant/bar on the same premises but run separately. Only accept cash!

    You didn’t need to spend the $5 deposit on a key. They locked up everything except the dorms... they were easily accessible after hours which wasn’t very secure in my opinion. You could tell it was low season, but you were still paying full price for everything (rentals, dorms etc.) The beach front location with the pool was beautiful, but it was a $3 cab each way into town per person. It was an older crowd when I was there. The bar staff wasn’t very attentive.
